BackYard Chickens. Most Liked Posts. May 16, Post 1 of 6. I have inherited an old line of Sweater Greys, I know they originate from Johnston County, NC "Percy Flowers", they were raised as a fighting bird but we do not take part in that nonsense. They have a Green Hue on there legs and spurs for miles. Great temperament with people as well.
Back in the s these chickens were fought by Sweater McGuiness. They did so well that notable game breeders of the time, namely Harold Brown, Duke Hulsey and Ray Hoskins acquired this breed to use as brood fowl. Walter Kelso did the same with the aid of Cecil Davies. Initially, Sweater McGuiness only bred and fought Green-Legged chickens but through his breeding program he was able to make his fowl yellow-legged. But to this day no one knows how he did it. Their fowl were half Sweater and half Ray Hoskins yellow-legged hatch.
