Post Cardinal Kelso
I recently was lucky enough to purchase a pure Cardinal Kelso hen with 8 chicks for $20.00. I don't know much about them but I was told that they are valued fowl. This one has white legs and has a pea comb. Can anybody tell me about this strain and what their physical characteristics are? Thanks...Rob

Loyce DeRouen of Louisiana is the originator of the CARDINAL CLUB KELSO. In the early 1950's, Mr. DeRouen had some Cardinals from F.F. "Chick" Hall of Oklahoma, which is a blend of Hatch-Clarets with little of Murphy blood.
In 1961 Loyce DeRouen acquired a trio of Kelso from Emery Thibodeaux through barter with his Cardinal trio. These Thibodeaux Kelsos were excellent slashers. Subsequently, Loyce DeRouen acquired two trios (Kelsos and Murphys) from an old man who lives in Jefferson Parish, in New Orleans who is a friend of Duke Hulsey and Mickey Massa. Those two trios acquired from the old man were the secret ingredients of the bloodline which made Loyce DeRouen a fortune and improved the quality of his family's life.
Through his careful breeding and selection, the CARDINAL CLUB KELSO was created.
The CARDINAL CLUB KELSOS have dark red feathers, yellow legged and come both pea-combed and straight-combed. They have good bone structure and have fantastic bodies. Furthermore, this bloodline has the ability to shred an opponent in just a blink of an eye--very fast and accurate. Aside from such trait, this bloodline is known to steal a win from behind.
Moreover, these CARDINAL CLUB KELSO is best when crossed with Lemon, Sweaters, Roundheads and Hatches.
