View Full Version : Hatches
December 2nd, 2003, 06:01 PM
im a new breeder and i started out with a broodcock and a broodhen both mclean hatches (from boy macopa of malabon). i was recently given a doc robinson hatch hen by one of my friends and i would like to get inputs as to what are the implications of crossing my mclean hatch cock with this doc robinson hatch hen. is this advisable? or are the disadvantages too numerous that i should discard this idea? and the result what would i call it? is it a cross or is it still a straight hatch?
December 2nd, 2003, 10:56 PM
Just want to share an experience. I bred a col givens hatch over gilmore hatch brood hens. The offsprings were really powerful and i tried fighting them and was not successful. I think straight line hatches are good for breeding nad not fighting. You can cross them with with any light blood you want (roundhead etc)
December 3rd, 2003, 12:39 AM
my opinion hatch has been very good in long knife. I,ve crossed yellow leged hatch over mclain hatch for many years, only i think that you should cross yellow leged hatch over your doc rob. hens to get the ones you want. yellow leged hatch are extremly deadly cutters. I have fought them in sunset la in usa and in the philippines all having a very high win percentage. for your mclains i think you should cross yellow leged hatch to them. also when you fight then make sure or strive to have them at proper moisture. cocks that are not ready no matter what breed will not do no good fight day .thinking that we all strive to have all the proper things together for our cocks at fight time. I have and all other cockers at some fights have our cocks messed up for many reasons, and then blame it on the blood line . don,t be to quick to blame the cocks,, for my opinion 90 % are lost because of what we have done to them in training and condition period.

Hello excalibur, are you from malabon? My uncle is a cock mate of Boy Macopa of Dampalit Malabon. His name is VG Martin.
December 3rd, 2003, 03:06 PM
thanks for your inputs fellow cockers!
fte777 i tend to agree with you that the result might not be the optimal battle cock. my question could probably be rephrased as a mclean hatch over a doc robinson hatch , could it produce good broodfowl for crossing later on?
manong thanks for that tip of crossing yellow leg hatch over green leg hatch. can't try it though as i have no yellow leg hatch.
eboy yes i am formerly from malabon but i now live in q.c. maybe one of these days i'll run into you at the sabungan at dampalit. where do you get your gamefowl? what are your bloodlines?
December 4th, 2003, 10:39 PM
I dont see anything wrong with the combination. Both mcleans and docs have been working well with other breeders. Give it a shot so we'll have more answers by the results and our experiences. Good luck.
December 5th, 2003, 07:38 AM
I don't see any problem with that combination, until i see your Maclean and Doc fight
You see, i am quite sure that the Maclean you got is not a "pure" maclean, most likely it is a Maclean cross. The same goes for your Doc Robinson. I don't have any hesitation about the Docs because this are birds that can break and are quite fast for a hatch... Your Maclean most likely have some light blood infusion in it,
December 5th, 2003, 02:08 PM
first of all swallow, thanks for your input!
fellow cockers, i'm very interested in what you can add about the characteristics of the doc robinson hatch, aside from "these birds can break and are quite fast for a hatch"... please tell me more of the characteristics of these birds... not only their fighting style but their usual general appearance... many thanks!
p.s. would also like to hear about the mclean hatch...
December 5th, 2003, 03:35 PM
My Mclean hatches are peacomb, dark hackle, medium to medium high stationed. Medium breaker and like most hatches, dead game and hardhitter.
About Doc hatch, they are stright comb, blue legged, medium stationed. Fast fighter, hits a lot, never get tired of shuffling. Of course, dead game.
They came from Boy Gamilla, also a friend of Boy Macopa.
December 6th, 2003, 05:15 AM
Hatch to Hatch crosses have worked for me. Crossing 2 Hatch families is also a way to reduce the ill effects of prolonged and intensive inbreeding, while maintaining the traits of the bloodline. Goodluck.
December 6th, 2003, 06:58 AM
THE MATING I CALL THE DOUBLE HATCH HAS BEEN ONE OF THE WINNING LINES THAT I HAVE.
I have crossed the GIVEN'S HATCH x JIMMY EAST JR.'S MCLEANS.
Also the GIVEN'S HATCH x GILMORE HATCH.
And from Mr. Pizarro, he sent me a DUKE HULSEY HATCH x GREEN LEGGED HATCH OF RAY ALEXANDER.
All 3 have been super on hacks. Only one thing, DOUBLE HATCH, I think, is NOT THAT SUITABLE FOR BIG-TIME DERBIES. Almost always slightly low headed. Only an opinion.
December 7th, 2003, 04:43 PM
eboy martin hi! :-) it seems that you know a lot of people among boy macopa's circle (VG Martin and Boy Gamilla). i seldom see boy macopa lately, only when he goes to the fishpond to help his sister in law (neneng) sell prawn fry.
you said mcleans are medium breakers, dead game and hard hitters while doc robinsons are fast fighters, hits a lot, does not tire shuffling and are dead game.
the picture i am getting (also because of swallow's input) is that the doc robinson hatch is fast, probably the fastest among the hatches while also retaining the hatch's main attributes of gameness and power... swallow also said it breaks high... if these are all true then the doc robinson hatch is probably the best hatch of all... agree or disagree?
by the way for your info the broodcock hatch i got from boy macopa is 3/4 mclean hatch 1/8 grey and 1/8 muff and the broodhen is 3/4 mclean hatch and 1/4 lemon. the doc robinson hen i got this from ache reyes (son of linda 21 the milkfish consignacion at bayan) is 3/4 doc robinson hatch and 1/4 sweater
December 8th, 2003, 07:35 AM
Swallow has the good points of the Doc Robinson's Hatch stated very well. I like the Docs for the said traits that swallow has given but one thing I hate about this Hatch, they are a little bit dumb. For a cocking populace that thinks that smarter fighters are a premium especially in bigtime fights, this Hatch, I think, does not fit the bill.
In my limited experience and all other friends of mine that has bred this line, they tend to attack and attack without even thinking. Many people call these Hatches, "ANG PINAKABOBONG HATCH." I tend to agree to these beliefs sometimes. They are a little bit hot-headed as well and some I even saw as low-headed as well. They don't think in a fight, they just attack and attack,without even bulging even with sometimes impeccable wounds.But I have got to admit that these family of Hatches have the never-say-die attitude, 1 of the traits I want in my fowls to have. That's why I still breed them and luckily, still winning with them.
December 8th, 2003, 07:47 AM
WOW! what a downer! i was just beginning to have a very high esteem for my doc robinson hatch... when WHAMMO! BOBO PALA!
maybe i should send it to college? or hire a private tutor?
December 8th, 2003, 08:52 AM
.....i have doc robinson hatch cock and gilmore hatch hen....they are winning, no problem with hatch to hatch mating....it's better be attack and attack than ilag ng ilag..
December 8th, 2003, 09:14 AM
I THINK PARE ITS BETTER TO GRADE YOUR DOCS ABOUT QUARTERS. i win with 3/4 Lemon 84 with quarter docs. ayos naman sila. you must just cure the attack thingy in thier heads. minsan sugod ng sugod tapos palagi naman sya tinatamaan. BWISIT KASI MINSAN SA DERBY YUN PRE. dapat abang di ba?hehehe...
December 8th, 2003, 02:45 PM
So i was right on the money about your hatches, they have light blood infusion.
i can't really say anything about your Docs, becuase I always believe that even if we call them alike, they might actually be opposite in performance. And since your birds are all blended with smart blood of Lemon, Sweater, Grey, muff... I would not be surprise if your fowls break well and fight smart, but do admit that the Old time Hatches are really dumb, but after years have past I believe the dumb hatch, has already been wipe out from the competition, and the hatches you see now a days are the Modern day Hatches. I have heard of Boy Gamilia (known as Boy Mary Jay aka BMJ) in the Malabon pits, he has a lot of these GLH, but most of his good fowls are YL and WL. VG Martin, i think is more known in the pits as Pete Martin(if he is the same guy), has really some good winning line GLH... they are smart and given to opportunity to connect, i don't see any bird being able to retaliate against those GLH of his.
Just my thoughts
December 9th, 2003, 04:00 AM
I really like my Docs. Coming up with a complete fighter is all about blending bloodlines that suit your taste. Not many pures will perform well in tough competition, but that's where the challenge of blending lines comes in.
December 9th, 2003, 10:40 AM
Boy Gamilla aka BMJ has a very well maintained lines. He has a lot of grey, his winningest fowl if i remember it right. His light fowl, mostly with claret infusion, has been very consistent in stag derbies he participated such as LGBA and NCA, also in bakbakan. unfortunately, he lost in the finals. Regarding VG Martin, he is behind BMJ's sucess for he is the one who introduced and explored the game to BMJ. A long time friend, a cocker for nearly 50 years now.
December 10th, 2003, 06:57 AM
If i am not mistaken i believe those greys of BMJ came from the Ricaforts, who got them from Tony Trebol... but i could also be wrong... :) My friend had fought a lot of times against BMJ entry in Del Monte, Dampalit, Anarose, VCSA, and have won almost every fight against them... though I have to admit BMJ's birds are real good, maybe just an issue of contrapelo...
Just my opinion
December 10th, 2003, 07:34 AM
I don't see anybody breeding all-hatch blood and prospering in the filipino knife and for a long period of time. I'd still infuse them . Personally, I like my hatches less than half.
But, hey, thats the fun , man, in this sport. Try anything U want.
December 11th, 2003, 06:58 AM
I must agree with Kenut, and also redwings that whatever good a Hatch-to-Hatch combination is, they will be far better when you cross them with the light fowls, especially the thinking type of RH, Kelso, Clarets, Lemons, and of course Greys.
If i may suggest, put your good hatch blood on Lancey dela Torre's Boston Lemon, or Redfoot. Or you may also try those Yellow hackled fowls of Ampil Bros. The type that breaks extremely high and had great timing, cutting, and are the thinking type of birds... You won't go far when you have birds that rushes in on the first sight of an opponent, even if that birds gives a lot of feet and power, unless he breaks high enough to top his opponent...
Just my thoughts
December 11th, 2003, 07:22 AM
yes swallow you're right on the money about my hatches having light blood infusions... and in spite of those infusions, i dont think i can call my broodcock mclean hatch smart yet... although it has proven itself (its a 1 time winner) its entrails were hanging out of its body after the fight (or so i was told by boy macopa).. and watching it during practice, i must say that it's good really good but i think it can go through a fight without itself sustaining a wound or two...
boy gamilla aka boy mary jay also gets a lot of gamecocks from boy macopa... i dont personally know him nor vg martin but ive heard of them a lot... you're also probably familiar with the siochi brothers (sons of mario siochi)?
December 12th, 2003, 06:45 AM
The Siochi bros? Of course I know them, they own the Anarose pit... They have some good birds too, but they have been losing a lot lately... maybe just a matter of luck not smiling on them too much this year. You mentioned the Siochi and the Docs, I remember last year my friend fought against him in DMCA, both entries for the championship, my friend was using a Doc cross, while Daday was using a sweater looking bird, once the birds were released they slowly walk towards each other and both went up in the air at the same time, The Doc top the opponent flying almost to the level of the WALA sign, when the birds landed daday's bird was dead on the drop, while the Doc cross simply look at his opponent knowing that he had connected a fatal blow... The aficionados gave an ovation for that fight as it was also the fastest kill of the night ...
August 7th, 2005, 10:21 PM
If you'll be fighting in Long knife, what do you think is the best grade to retain when crossing hatches to other bloodlines ? is it 1/4, 1/8, 1/2 or 3/4 ?
August 7th, 2005, 10:44 PM
3/4 works for me ........:hombre:
August 8th, 2005, 07:02 PM
Got good results with 1/32nd crossed.:hombre:
August 8th, 2005, 10:31 PM
It should depend on the base blood you're using. At times 1/4 should do it to get the necessary gameness and power. But still it as well depends on what your level of comfort and experimentation with your creation. Some are comfortable with 1/2 grade like Sweater-Gilmores, Sweater-HiAction ang Kelso-McLean's. And there are those whose done 1/8 grade with great success.
At the moment we are still at 1/2 grade. We just hatched a few 1/4 grade chicks that we achieved using a winner (Kelso-Dink X Kelso hens) but will try three-way crosses to 1/4 Hatch grade next season.
What type of Hatch are you using?
August 9th, 2005, 05:49 PM
billy ruble toppy and a GL hatch from Bob cuenca.
August 9th, 2005, 06:00 PM
I guess it depends what type of hatch family and what type of weapon you're fighting... But I fight in the long knife and most of my fowls right now are hatch greys and roundheads, kelsos, and sweaters with 1/2 and 1/4 hatch infusions in them. . .
I believe selection is the primary key as to what type of hatch suits your taste... and what family to cross with it...
Next year I'll be showing mostly hatch greys and hatch crosses with 1/2 and 1/4 infusion... Good Luck with yours gents.
August 9th, 2005, 10:03 PM
it really depends on the type of hatch...we used to show a lot of Leiper-Mclean crosses and the were real killers...but rarely could you use them again after the first win and we had all these baldado cocks to feed cuz they would not die either...hehehe
I will be fighing alot of pure mcleans this stag season
August 10th, 2005, 11:16 AM
is your spangle hatches "mcleans"?
August 10th, 2005, 11:53 AM
Are the Ruble Toppies still a winning family in the PI today? I saw both the Ruble Toppy and the Muff, sometimes they showed both the muff and the toppy. They were good looking, very powerful with plenty of ability and game. Saw many that won in Mexico between 1978 and 1982, for Carlos Hines of St. Luis Potosi.
FYI, the muff and the toppy that Ruble obtained and crossed to his hatches came from the late John Kozura. John Kozura's son, Dr. John Kozura of TX, still carries them on.
August 10th, 2005, 12:21 PM
Yes they are mcleans but the mcleans I am refering to are different family (C.C.Cooke).The spangles definatly can win pure in LK..Also The Sparow Hatch can win pure in the LK fought a lot of them in Araneta in the early-mid 90's and they could really break.
yeah those kozura muffs are super birds

August 10th, 2005, 07:03 PM
am just curios, is the gl hatch of bob c. you will be
breeding his sandy hatch ? keep me posted on
his offsprings and best of everything in your
August 10th, 2005, 08:44 PM
I have no idea if its sandy hatch. My ninong brought it last 1998.
August 18th, 2005, 02:50 AM
I am looking for a good hatch family. I was thinking of getting
What are the different qualities of each and which would you prefer to have if you're competing in the LK and who would I be able to obtain some blood from? Help is much appreciated. I am located on O'ahu, Hawaii.
Also what are some accurate, good cutting chickens? Looking for that too. Was thinking about roundheads.
August 18th, 2005, 05:44 PM
My favorite is not on the list.

"Its not just about the game"

August 20th, 2005, 06:32 AM
I like the Warparty and Southern Cross Muira Hatches. They are very game and have speed and power.
August 20th, 2005, 08:44 AM
how about the PENNEY HATCHES..
August 20th, 2005, 01:17 PM
other hatches are , sandy hatch,
heinie mathesius , perry hatch, jack walton, cecil, oakgrove, ray hoskins , billy abbott, riverview, dink fair.
August 20th, 2005, 01:27 PM
l like the 2 way cross of.........mclean-leiper..........they have breaking ability..........and still have the bottom,aggressiveness and hitting power ..........of a real hatch.
August 20th, 2005, 01:51 PM
eric pointer hatch
only few got them....i know a breeder who have them...none for sale...
Lord, I know my enemies protect me from my friends...
August 20th, 2005, 01:55 PM
aloha from hawaii i too live on the island of oahu and the only hatches you need is the red velcro which is a hatch type fowl with awesome speed and power to spare and as for bottom theyll kick till tomorrow and i just lovem
August 20th, 2005, 02:51 PM
other for me also!
i prefer our yellow legged hatch (stewarts)game gritty hit a ton and unbelievable livability! cross out well and are better crossed than pure. that's if you have the real stewarts.
August 20th, 2005, 11:25 PM
i had two imported leipers...good chickens when they spar....they alaways dominate the other in a spar.....heavy plummage dark red fowl.....they hit really hard and fast....when i fought the first one he lost iwas so pissed off because he always does good in the spar...but **** man when the LONG KNIFE was on he got hit and did not fight hard at all he just lost.....the second one the brother did the same **** i was so imbarrassed at thr pit....this one got hit and did not even land one blow.......Just sharing my experience with two imported leipers....
August 21st, 2005, 02:42 PM
that a hatch is tough..........and have lots of bottom...........is probably in gaff...........where the gaff effect is not immediately devastating
but in longknife.........it`s a different story..........whether you have lots of bottom.......very game so to say.........if got hit in vital points...........they`ll go down immediately........
gameness and bottom matter........when they are badly hurt........because they have lots of heart.........they will try until the end to retaliate and kill their opponents
August 21st, 2005, 10:09 PM
One of my winning line are MClean hatches, very awesome fowl.
Kill Kill Kill:D Speed and accuracy you got it..
August 22nd, 2005, 10:21 AM
I like the good Leipers like the ones from Johnny Mitchell or Rat Graves or Roger Farrow. They are game, athlectic and can win the big tournaments.
August 24th, 2005, 01:59 PM
I love leipers...they are sooo deliberate and when they start shuffling it gets really violent
August 24th, 2005, 02:00 PM
I like 3 way cross of hatches..J. Walton/Col. Givens/Blueface never been defeated in Bakbakan and other bigtime Stag derbies. Now I'm experimenting 4 way cross.. crossing this triple hatch hen to a pure stewart YLH broodcock.
September 19th, 2005, 08:06 PM
What do you plan to cross them too? My gavilan hatch crossed to warhorse are better for lk and crossed to the mclean is more suited for american gaff.
Give us more info on your other lines to better help you.
September 19th, 2005, 08:56 PM
can anyone say the traits of diff hatches like what they say tha blueface hatch are thinking hatch? etc
September 21st, 2005, 05:24 AM
We have only the "generic" YLH and Mcleans:lol: Would love try namebrands sometimes , if i have a pick i would love to have the Red Fox Hatch the Lemon Hackles.. boy they sure look awesome!!
For performance i'd go for the High Action Hatches! DEAD GAME.. remember the WSD '04 entry .. that rooster was fighting dead and just carried on winning the fight!

September 22nd, 2005, 04:13 AM
Could anyone classify these different hatches between "rushers" and "non rushers"? Who among the popular breeders breed non rushers. Obviously long knife competitors prefer non rushers.
September 22nd, 2005, 12:39 PM
my blood is the doc robisons hatch and i like them
September 24th, 2005, 03:44 AM
i think the Blue Face hatches are non-rushers . from watching WSD tapes i think the Mamie Lacson Hatches fought by Mayor Alarilla are awesome non-rushing type hatches.:)
October 2nd, 2005, 09:24 PM
try an ECJ red they are good
October 3rd, 2005, 12:40 AM
.....I'll go for Mclean Hatch which really give us high percentage of winning, but in fairness, They are all bred under HATCH bloodline

you're on the island of oahu .. if you were lookin for good hatch birds, i'd say you're at a convenience bein on that particular island .. ace gamecock farm of annette and darryl lee out in waimanalo have as good a hatch family as i've seen .. this is just my opinion .. they're good folks and their birds as just as good .. i'd recomment you get a hold of them and try to visit their place .. go with the straight comb side of the hatches .. i think they're better than the pea comb side .. just my opinion again .. take it easy

i agree with BUHAWI with regards to gameness.
anyone here who knows the american breeder who breeds the MAGNUM HATCH??? i saw him on TV being interveiwed on "TUKAAN" according to him " HE DOESNT TALK THE TALK...... RATHER...HE WALKS THE WALK... when it comes to performance and winning percentage of his MAGNUM HATCH.... i was impressed right away.
October 6th, 2005, 09:37 AM
i prefer col.givens speckled hatch lots of bottom and power good to cross with roundheads got good winning percentage from them since i started raising chickens.
October 27th, 2005, 03:29 PM
how about the oakgrove hatch?
October 28th, 2005, 01:55 AM
I have Leipers,Mcleans and Ruble Hatches, from My Expeirience the Leipers are the most complete of them,(IE they have Cut,Gameness and power) The Rubles have Extreme Gameness but arent the best cutting fowl on earth,The Mcleans Hit like 10 tons of Bricks cut well and are Game,I love them all or wouldnt have them, these three Lines have been the best hatch fowl i have seen,The Mcleans and Leipers Really Complement each other rather well,The Half Mclean and Half Leiper is the best of them all Good cutting ability,Brute Power,and Magnificent Gameness,i will be trying the Rubles crossed onto Leipers this comeing season we will see how they cross on each other............
October 28th, 2005, 01:59 AM
warparty sent me one of his mclean-leiper broodcock..my avatar.....and he is.......like you described.......mclean and leiper combination.......are like mustard and hotdog.......he`s now going 4 years old.......can still rock and roll .......with amazing speed and power:D
jimmy tyler of oklahoma sent me two fine specimens of his hatch bloodline..............been breeding them with warparty`s hatch.....

I am looking to buy a Hatch Trio but I only want to purchase the best that I can obtain.

If not I will order from the mainland if I have to, to obtain the best.

A guy in south texas fights under "Cat" entry. He breeds for flying J game farm of Uvalde,Tx. I saw him fight at sunset and again in New Mexico. I was impressed. I got his hatch and am now breeding them. He calls them "CAT" hatch and they are a blend of col. givins blood, and some old sanford jennings blood. I think maybe a even some oscar akins. I don't know but they are nice and reasonable. I will test mine this year in fact next week on the 12-3-05. We will see what I got.

How many of the Named Hatches in this thread originated from the Mcleans & actually are Mcleans & the breeder put his own name on them.
December 31st, 2005, 02:35 PM
My guesstimated answer to Sir Jim is probable less than a few 10% 10 for most if there are any left on the particular named breeds, otherwise I would say ZERO. People use this name breed just like they are referring to a team of Basketball players or Football player. They call them this and that, pure this, pure that when in reality, such names inaccurately describe the fowl being discussed as meaningless. Iím sure they may be good roosters, but its east to west that the relationship does not exceed and if it does, itís only a fraction related. All of these things just stimulate curiosity just like Adam and Eve. Chances are, a lot of these fowl carrying such Kelso, Hatch or whatever name they call them do not even carry a bit of that blood.
There must be a thousand of families called hatch, pure kelsos and so forth. If a breeder takes a family of chicken and breeds them according to his way, after a few generations, he is entitled to call them anything he wants to. They are his, not some guy that has been dead for decades and centuries long ago. If we obtain an exact trio of the same bloodline from the same breeder, and I breed mine here and you breed your trio over there, while the other guy breeds his trios of the same line that we have somewhere in Timbuktu, few years from now, they wonít be the same rooster. Even genetically they trace from the same original bloodline, they will not be the same in terms of physical features, confirmation, etc. The reason being is because of environmental influence. The water they drink, their feeds and the soil that theyíre into compared to what I feed them here, will change their overall makeups. That is one reason why most of the bloodlines weather we like it or not, still comes from this part of the continent its because of the things that I had mentioned. Their genes that are inherited from the cock and the hen do not always make the perfect fighting cock; ENVIRONMENT does because environment and breeding goes hand and hand.
So getting back to the main subject of names breeds, if you had them for a few years, they are yours. You are entitled to take the credit and should be man enough to take the blame if they didnít perform to your expectations and not blame them on someone else, whichever it may be. Most breeders change the bloodlines as soon as they obtain them anyway. The first thing they do is add new blood and try to improve them to their standards of perfection. When they do this, their genetic pool change and are not the same any more. They are not straight or pure so and soís anymore.
If W. A. Kelso, Hermann McGinnis or Sandy Hatch was still alive today, do you really think they can recognize the so-called Hatch, kilos or whatever you want to call them fancy names? I think not.
Anyway, anybody is entitled to disagree with me of course. Because if we all agree on things, then we are all winners and no losers.
Keep them crowning!
December 31st, 2005, 03:05 PM
My point was, their foundation blood line that started these great Hatchs.
I do agree that when a man puts his time & sweat in to them, he has a right to call them what ever he wants to. But, if he breeds them true, over the years with out adding new blood & they keep their quality, he does owe the originator a bit of credit. With out him, your great line would not exist.
I understand that the Leipers are the basic Mcleans but bred to the dark side.
The foundation bloodline of the Gilmore is Mclean as well, so I am told.
I have been told that my old time Gavilans, that came from Buck originated out of Mcleans. I also heard that they added some Blue Face to the Gavilans, later.
I don't know for a fact but thought that some of you in here may have some history on these Hatch blood lines. this is what I have been told & could be wrong.
December 31st, 2005, 04:14 PM
Ok let me start from the legendary Hatch fowl and hopefully someone here will continue the make up, and these I offer some brief insight to the early breeding of the Hatch.
Mr. E. Sanford (Sandy) Hatch had a family of Whitehackle, from Maurice OíConnell, which were considered very game. When Mr. John Leiper went to feed for Mr. Hatch and he infused the Coolidge Duryea Boston Roundhead blood. Later in 1931 Mr. Heinie Mathesius took Mr.Leiperís position as Hatchís feeder. He was responsible for infusing some Morgan Whitehackle blood and along with the green-legged Thompson blood which Mr. Hatch put in and made up the breeding of his fowl.
In 1942 Mr. Hatch had his feeder (Mathesius) dispose of all his fowl.
E. W. Law drew up the contract in which C. C Cook of Oklahoma purchased approximately 125 stags and pullets, 125 cocks and hens for the sum of $2,000.00. Before this, no Hatch fowl had ever been sold.
The Hatch fowl came both green and yellow-legged, pea and straight combed. Mr. Hatch considered these one family and even though his fowl were low-headed and poor cutters, they possessed a tremendous kick and were desperately game.
Around 1946 Mr. Hatch passed away but today, over 60 years later, still the Hatch (Type) fowl offers gameness as foundation stock. This line should be testimony enough for the man and his fowl.
Now, from some old time breeder that I know who is on his late 70ís and still breeding old time breeds since the 50ís told me that the Hatch were made from the Old Kearney Brown Reds and Kearney Whitehackles, bred to the Brown Red side for the green legs and the Whitehackle side for the yellow legs. Later to be breed by some Boston Roundhead blood as bred by Mr. Coolidge. Mr. Hatch also put some other bloodlines into his fowl but the Kearney blood was dominant. My old time friendís grandfather bought some Hatch fowl from Heinie Mathesius many many years ago. Now, as most you know, Heinie was the feeder and breeder for Mr. Hatch over quite number years. Mathesius told the grandfather of my friend the same make up of the Hatch breeding which are being mainly Kearney. For the ones that never saw this old time straight Kearney Brown Red, this is how it looks: The cocks are dark red, light green legs, straight comb and heavy plummage, The hens are all wheaton and red neck with light green legs, Thats how the Hatch got their typical green legs from.
December 31st, 2005, 06:13 PM
The last post outlining the history of the Hatch fowl is quite instructive as it shows how Mr. Hatch developed a deep game and tough family of fowl from the Whitehackle Kearney Brownred Mahogany and Boston Roundhead blood that he had access to. But what is more important than these families of fowl (which were undoubtedly judged the gamest at that time by Mr. Hatch) is the consistent and careful selection done by Mr. Hatch toward gameness power and toughness which the Hatch fowl continue to be known for in general.
What we should acknowledge however are the improvements made on the Hatch fowl by subsequent breeders of the Hatch fowl - McLean and Sweater McGuiness who made the "Blue Face" Hatch fowl. In the late 1970s I had the opportunity to visit with Mr Frank Shy at his home in Rhode Island which overlooked Naragansett Bay. Mr Shy showed me the gaffs which he had been owned by Mr. Hatch and they were 1 inch blunt gaffs (point not sharpened) which according to Mr. Shy were the preferred weapon of Mr. Hatch. In fact, Frank Shy said that these were the only gaffs in which the Hatch fowl in the 1920s and 1930s could win a majority as they were very slow and had little fighting or cutting ability. The Hatch fowl then according to Mr. Shy were just rugged, strong and very game and would outlast their opponents in these blunt gaffs.
Frank Shy however said that sometime in the mid 1950s, Sweater McGuiness showed up at the annual Claymore stag tournament in the Northeast and defeated the best short heel breeders of the day with the Blue Face fowl which McGuiness reportedly bred out of broodstock fro Ted McLean. These Blue Face Hatch fowl were vastly superior to any of the old Hatch fowl that the Northeast breeders had seen in the past especially in cutting and general fighting ability. Mr Shy told me that he went to great lengths to secure these Blue Face fowl - even tracing the farms of friends of Sweater McGuiness who apparently bred these fowl for McGuiness. (Sweater McGuiness died shortly after he developed the Blue Face Hatch.)
Frank Shy said that it was after he infused the Blue Face blood into his fowl did he start dominating the annual Claymore tournament himself.
We are told that this particular family of Hatch fowl were eventually bred by the likes of Billy Ruble, Red Richardson, Gilmore, Frank Steele and several others but that would be several more stories in themselves.

I prefer the Bates Hatch over all other hatch fowl I have fooled with over the years. What I like about them is that they cut enough to win pure without having to cross with another family. Thier orginal make up I understand was Blue Face crossed on McLean. I personally think they were gave a touch of White Hackel blood. But to me they are the best all around Hatch blood.

anybody can post oakgrovehatch pls.and what is the style of fighting of this hatch thanks..dante
June 27th, 2006, 10:23 AM
Oakgrove has 2 hatches or even more. I know of 2. Stewart YL and the Gilmore. I got this blood in the late 80's or so.
I had both. The Stewarts were not fancy birds and they dont turn well. If you spar them you wouldnt buy them. But they were one of the CUttingest birds ive ever seen. I remember I had 1 reject (Short) and I put a knife in him to test with the others. He basically killed 3 birds in a span of 1 hour with out a scratch. Same with his brothers in the derbies. I eventually lost interest in them due to the Station. They were short. ALL came that way no matter how I carefully select. Boy, they were great birds.
The GIlmore is also pretty drn good. They had awesome ability for a hatch and can CUT better than most hatches. I believe Carol got his hatches from Gene.
Gene roams around here somewhere so maybe he can answer in more detail your questions.

June 29th, 2006, 10:33 AM
i have a Mclean hatch given to me by my uncle for breeding, but the problem is he is a very aggressive man fighter. It never crossed my mind to breed that chicken because he will pass it on to his offspring, but it already won 4 times from my uncle. I decided to fight that mclean hatch without telling my uncle, as the day of conditioning goes by I realized that I have already tamed the chicken and already controlled, connected and adjusted to his behaviour. To make the story short I fought the mclean hatch, indeed he is the aggressor but i will never forget his fighting ability he is a flyer and shuffles to the air with a good cutting ability with his head back and feet out, he circles the opponent in the air like evading the opponents feet. he lands on the opponents back and leave a fatal wound and delivers one strong kick on the head, you would even hear the 'puk' sound. and the opponent is dead. he is now a 5 time winner slightly wounded. I hope all mclean hatch are aggressive but smart, It will even kill those 'abang' chickens.

Curtis "blackwell" not sure about the bloodline composition there nothing but game!
July 23rd, 2006, 02:36 AM
Curtis Blackwell got his hatch blood from Harry Parr and Ted Mclean who were partners. I met Mr. Blackwell a year before his death and had chicken talk with him. I got some Mclean from him but I do not have them anymore, I still have the Clarets which he got from Mr. Kelso.
Harry and Curtis had a friendly main. Curtis fighting the Clarets and Harry the Mcleans. Curtis won the main on the odd, but I was told that Harry won his money back when they hacked after the main. The Mcleans that I posted originated from Harry Parr. I got it from his boyhood friend who received all of Harry's breeding stocks at the time that tha former was having problems with his wife. Harry's wife called the hayupacks on him. They come both green and yellow legs and I was told that they are the same. You ca breed green to green and sometines a yellow leg will come out and vice versa. Form some reason I have had better luck with the YL.

Is it safe to say that all hatch fowl have the Ted Mclean blood influence and were basiclly all started by this man?
September 14th, 2006, 03:37 PM
It is Sanford Hatch that started the line. It was Heinie Mathesius who improved it as the original version were Low headed and dumb fighters, by placing an eight blood of the Morgan Whitehackle it became smarter , high headed fighters and retaining the power and deep game qualities . From there it went to Ted Mclean.
September 15th, 2006, 01:18 AM
underhack, your PM inbox is full.
September 15th, 2006, 10:25 AM
Thanks for the reply. So basiclly all the Hatch fowl are known to have went through the hands of Mclean? Is there any other people that was known to have gotten some of Sandys Hatches or Heinie Mathesius blood that carried them on other then Mclean? If not we could say that all hatch fowl are Mclean Hatches that were from Mclean of Hatches bloodlines. All other names put on the hatch were of people who made them there own bloodlines.

September 15th, 2006, 08:27 PM
Underhack, many folks had Hatch blood before Ted McLean got his part of them. For instance Judge Leiper got some of the blood from Sanford Hatch, Tom Murphy of Murphy fame swapped brood fowl with Sanford Hatch. C.C. Cooke with J.D. Perry got some of the Sanford Hatch blood as well as E. W. Law. There was a Dave Ward of Kansas who helped raise cocks for Law and Hatch that got some of the Hatch blood. Many men back in the glory days of cocking in this country got hatch blood before McLean. But I believe McLean made a better name for his then some of the others when he campaigned in the big lon heel Florida Tournaments of years ago and the short heel tournaments like the CLaymore and Lally. Plus men like Curtis Blackwell and Harold Brown got hold of the Mcleans and made a name for themselves with the McLean family of Hatch.Later Sweater McGinnis got some Mclean blood and made the now famous Blue Face. And this is what brought the Mclean family of hatch blood to prominence...
September 15th, 2006, 09:05 PM
Nice input Iriscutt . Very interesting. Can you add anything on Bill L. Ruble hatch, coz my inlaws here still got the old Ruble hatch line. Not pure anymore but could be just a drop blood left thats walking around their farm.
You know Hatch is my favorite and first choice in any survey. Thanks Bro.

Irish as always great information. I didnt know the fowl were spread out as much as they were.I would think they probably were but didnt hear to much about it other then Mclean.

October 14th, 2006, 05:39 PM
Of all the "pure" Green Legged Hatches I've ever seen...its the McLean GL Hatch that impresses me the most. They have the speed, smartness and multiple shuffling abilities that I couldn't found on any other GL Hatches. Ground fighters and has enough power and gameness that I can trust. Cross well to almost any lines...light or heavy strains. Very suitable for long-knife fighting. Even pures can still win the fights.
Though, some of them are manfighters (this is one thing that scares some to bred GL Hatches), but through selective breeding....selecting only the non-manfighters, and selecting specimens with the best station and also has great ability to cut both in air and in the ground this skills will be produced in any line of Hatches especially the McLeans.
In the past I have GL McLeans, and this is the only Hatch I have on my farms. But, as of now I just entrust the breeding of this great fowl line to my friends to cut on cost on maintaining lots of birds on my farm. If my Sweaters and Roundheads starts to show lack of gameness and power then I will cross them to McLeans to make them tougher. I think at present there's no need to, as my Sweater-Roundhead cross are very reliable and don't need the blood of McLeans.
October 14th, 2006, 09:13 PM
Does one really need lots of hatch types in his yard ? Or is it more of a want than a need ? I for one am happy with my Mcleans... but then I ended grabbing WT Greene's Blueface when I was there simply for my peace of mind ... I don't want to blame myself in the end that I did not grab the opportunity to get WT's blueface while I was there when the man himself was already 96 and still keeps a few of his birds. I won't be surprised if those remaining birds were his top notch birds...and so ... I grabbed a blueface together with the Grey that I wanted.
Now I have a Mclean and a Blueface...but in good time, I will decide which one will remain. :hippie:

there are good and bad in every modern hatch strain. Some Mcleans are good, some are not. Some Leiper are good, and some are not. Fighting style is a matter of selection towards your selection standard. If two persons will get their hatch that are full brothers and sisters from the same source and breed them according to their standard, their fighting style will eventually change after long years of selection if you have the patience.
If Mr. A likes the purely offensive no waving, head first, bill hold and manfighters type while Mr B likes the smart waving, feet first, no billhold type, not manfighters, their fowls will become like that after long years of selection. It doesn't matter where your fowls came from. The shortest way is to start with a strain whose fighting traits already suits you, and just continue the work of the previous breeder. If you are good enough, you might even improve it further, or worse, they will deteriorate in your hands.
Fighting traits are behavioral and are additive, it is multifactorial, and polygenic. Just like the Hound dog breeders, only the good trackers are selected to breed. The sheep herding dogs, the retrievers and so on. The selection standard is based on physical and behavioral conformation.

Yeah very informative.

I was so impressed with the "Shaking" (cutting style) of Tonio's WSD Entry that I searched for a very similar Shaking-cutting style (niyuyugyug). I found a Spangle Hatch that picked up the other cock and shook it until it was over. When you pick up the other cock, it would be like shreded meat. So, I called this Spangle hatch, the Corn Beef line.
