The stag was a deep red with a very dark face, the pullets very dark brown bodies with red hackles.
Dudley brought this cock home with several others and mated him with the two McDougal New Mack hens. This cross was the original foundation of Wisconsin Red Shufflers. He fought them against some locals and won handily.
The following season Dudley bred the New Mack stag that he purchased from McDougal over the three half Seven Strain Inside Red, half Cork Irish hens from Huddleston and again got amazing fighters in the pit.
They were very game and relentless fighters and were popular because they never let up even when cornered, often stealing a come-from-behind win against better odds.
