This experimental cross, between us PJL Bittergame strain and the Igon strain, is surely fun if not promising.
The Igon bloodline was acquired by our team manager after lingering at different naked heel pits for several months to search for tough breeder cockfighters that might be willing to share their naked heel strain. Mother and daughters were used in the brood pens as the sons were only tested.
Our team have dispersed the acquired original Igon female chickens and their offsprings. But our team have access to them all at moments noticed.
Today, our team manager has named this cross PJL Austronesian and plans to develop it into a strain of gamecocks good for steel weapon and naked heel.
Future Strain: PJL Austronesian
Father: PJL Bittergame strain
Mother: Igon strain
Purpose: Livability for dispersal to rural folks
Our team manager's thoughts:
"they will dominate WSC (world slasher cup) in the near future.
and also the WNC (world nakedheel cup)...
need to rob a bank first for pot money and minimum bets and expenses.."
Ray Alexander welcomed our team manager early in the morning. Ray mentioned his first gamecock strain of chickens is the Jap and that he worked for Elmer Griffin whom became his friend and mentor.
Elmer Griffin walked cocks for John Madigin in the past. Thus, Elmer was able to breed his own strain of Claret by linebreeding to John's cocks year in year out. Elmer owned Shawlneck strain of gamecocks which he used for the hen side. In the end, the Shawlneck blood is the infusion blood to the Madigin Claret and which is to become the Griffin Claret.
Today's Wine Red Lacy Roundhead of Dan Gray is said to have Claret blood. Joe Wolcott in an interview mentioned that his foundation is (Dan Gray) Claret-Roundhead. Joe Wolcott has beaten Sammy Ramsey for the 2004 Cocker Of The Year award at Sunset Recreation Club with just a fraction of a percent. Joe Wolcott become 2005 Champion of World Slasher Cup I.
Dan Gray, 1994 Champion of World Slasher Cup, is a close friend of Ray Alexander.

Brian Corkren entertained our team manager very well.
Aside from the Blackwater bloodlines which Brian campaigned successfully including Sunset Recreation Club, Brian is also known for his old time Whites. The cross of his Blackwater bloodlines and his oldtime White might be his best battle cocks.
Bruce Barnette is truly a gentleman both in person and in business. That is the thought of our team manager.
Chris NeSmith made the day of our team manager. Many others helped out including Cris' son, Hunter.
It was in the middle of the day and the back of the neck of our team manager was burnt by the sun even though it was windy.

Sammy Ramsey was on time to meet our team manager early in the morning. Many stories from Sammy will be cherished by our team manager.

William T. Greene, son (in-law), and grandson are all happy to welcome our team manager.
William is purist propagator of Blueface strain and Grey strain. Both strains of gamecocks were gifts from George Herman "Sweater" McGinnis. McGinnis is the originator of both strains.
Perfection Greys of McGinnis as William told our team manager.
