Check out Warparty at gamerooster. He's selling some right now.

I've got a few to let go this year if anyone is interested. I have two 2 year old Kelso cocks, the originals came from Gil Lovell of the "Hickory Forest" entry. Dark wine colored, throw a few spangle, pearl legged. I have several McLean pullets out of my Diablo cock. I also have a few Law/Perry pullets to let go, could make up pairs or a trio. I've got a couple of my "Speck" cocks to let go.These are a blend of Percy Flowers Hatch, Pumpkin Hulseys and Regular greys set as a family. I also have a few yard hatch cocks and stags to let go. None are sold for illegal purposes! YFIS

The best source you will find is Don Pyle (Harmony Downs entry). I had some from him and they were the gamest hatches I ever owned. I had a hard time raising them unfortunately. They wont be cheap if he gets rid of any at all, but well worth it :D

I think a lot of Hatch blood traces back to Percy Flowers yard. It has also been a name put on fowl for selling since the 70's. Good luck finding some good ones.

Johnny Mitchell leipers and blueface hatch came from Percy flowers. Percy flowers got the leipers, blueface and regular grey from Sweater Mguiness. One of their all type favorite crosses was 1/2 leiper 1/4 Blueface and 1/4 regular grey. Another person that has the Percy Flowers blueface and regular grey is Robert Harvey of Dead End Gamefarm. Hammer time and Mike Middleton have the Percy Flowers Blueface hatch from Johnny Mitchell.

mr. john and edd mckeldrey got the leapiers, the paleface blueface, and the finly grays from percy while sweeter was there, the leapiers were dark red stream line roosters with very small heads and eyes as red as fire, the paleface were 95%leamon cake, i made many trips to johns before he passed, i got all three lines from john, but only have a little of the leapiers left, as when john passed dale and joe cantrell got all the pure stuff, dale quite and let gene wensil have all the brood fowl, those were the best leapiers i ever saw, john told me that percy and sweeter showed them 1/2 leapier 1/4 blueface 1/4 gray, folks would be suprised if they knew who all used the paleface in there battle crosses, i read many letters from judge leapier and the word hatch was never mentioned, but the name brown red and whitehackle was, i have seen a whole lot of so called leapier blood, but none like the ones john mckeldrey, did i mention john was a great breeder and was well know for his old kelso blood. hope this helps in some way.

Johnny and Lane Arrington of Waynesville traded the Grey and Liepers, this is where Johnny got the grey blood. Lane got it from Harold, they swapped a pair, I have seen both and they Nicked for Lane, he showed them in tough company and done well. The leiper is very dark, a little short but strong and Ability.....I knew John Mckeldry and saw many of his fowl go, the Finley grey, Blueface, WAK's, and the Massey. Those Kelso were some leggin' cocks...

I must say one of the best cocks ive ever seen pitted came from the fowl mr sids brought back from mr mceldry,pale face, dark,hatch cocks that could break,cut,and stay till the end.I was lucky to have had the pleasure to have some of the blood as well as the mcphersons and marion rose,and leipers, from mr ownes which is close friends to mr sids.Ive been over your way a lot sence ive been back in the country mr sids,a mutaul friend of ours keeps my fowl for me,just above three forks,hope to get to meet you someday,corn allways said you and mr hatfield were the most consistant feeders he ever seen back when it was leaugal.You sure brought back some good fowl from mr mceldry,thanks mate!

December 17th, 2012, 01:22 AM
thank you dirty south for the nice comments, and yes mr. mckeldrey had the percy blood as pure as you could get, as alot of people don"t no leapiers as good as they think they do, but the good leapiers would throw a stright comb, i have seen at johns and had them myself stright comb leapiers, percy had them to and so did mr. judge leapier, as i read countless letters from mr leapier about the fowl and no hatch blood was ever mentioned, only brown red and whithackle, now its hard to tell what other leapier breeders put into theirs, but i no john told me they were just like they were when he got them from percy, you are more than welcome to come visit with me and my son tony, just give me a call the day before to make sure i will be home. corn had 9 of those cocks that were 1/2 my old mclean 1/4 leapier and 1/4 paleface along with (5) 1/ sid 1/4 leapier and 1/4 paleface,and he won cocker of the year at a good pit in his neck of the woods, and i won cocker of the year the same year with 18 cocks at a local pit here, once again thanks, with regards, Mr Christian

I've got about a dozen percy cocks coming two year old this year. I raise the Percy blood and sweater blueface. Although the sweaters are faster and multiple shufflers. The Percy blood is very strong. I like the two crossed. It makes some good looking birds. Both families come 100% straight comb. The Sweater blood comes higher station, darker red and darker green leg. The Percy blood is medium station, lemon hackle and olive colored legs.

I believe the leiper blood is responsible for more good green legged fowl than any other breed out there. I got my first leipers from a man name Cy Taylor, Cy told me the story on how he came about his leiper fowl, later on Billy Ruble told me the same story and said the leiper blood was really what put him on the map just as it had Cy Taylor. I was told by Billy and Cy that the very same leiper is what put Harold Brown on the map also as a matter of fact Billy and Cy told me they bred the very first leiper cock Harold obtained, Cy said he wore a new car out between Ohio and Birmingham running that leiper cock back and forth from his place to Harolds. I have been breeding the leiper from Jack Smith that he got from Bill Roberson and I was amazed at the speed of these fowl and their hatred for another cock is beyond anything I have ever seen. I love them for crossing and they put speed, cutting, and atheletic ability to anything they are crossed with.

Chad can you give some more information about Cy Taylor? Have heard good things about him but honestly I have no clue who he is. Is he still alive? Where did he get his Leipers? A brief history would be appreciated if you do not mind sharing it with us. Lurena I met Cy thru Jack Smith. Newton Wade, Jack Smith and myself went to Cy's house to visit back in 2000 and Cy let me have picking choice out of 20 pure stags and gave me 2 pullets he had single mated to a blueface cock we took the babys away from them when we got them out of the pens they was the most beautiful pullets I had ever seen. Cy told me Harold Brown got a leiper cock. (I may not have this story exact but I do have it on video so I can verify it) Cy told me Harold had been after Bill Roberson to let him have a Leiper cock Bill would not have it, later on Harold was in Florida for one of the big tournaments and knew a man who had the leipers from Bill Roberson and on his way home Harold stopped by and told the man Bill had said to let him have one on the leiper cocks and Harold walked away with one of the cocks. That cock is the one Cy said here wore out a new car hauling him back and forth from ohio to alabama Billy Ruble also told me he bred this cock and told me this same story. If I remember right the man in florida was Bill's Robersons brother-inlaw, anyway to make a long story short Cy said Bill and Harold was showing at Boxwood and Bill and Harold both had and entry, Bill was fighting strong and Harold was too, Harold using the Leiper/mclean cross the only loss Bill had coming to Harold, Cy said as they was cutting the heels off of Bills cock Harold couldn't help but rub salt in the wound and ask Bill how did it feel to get whipped by his own fowl, Cy said Bill was ready to kill Harold on the spot and was not a person to mess but it eventually all blew over.Later on Harold also got leiper from I believe Cy called him a Mr Suttles also. Now folks I not saying this is right or wrong just what I was told when I got my fowl from Cy. I never met or new Bill Roberson but I have heard plenty about him from Jack Smith and Jimmy East Sr talked to me about him said he had the best of the leipers. Jimmy had a family he called the Virginia Hatch, they was nothing more than the leipers from Bill Roberson, Jimmy crossed them on asil till the day he died most never knew it but Jimmy loved a 3/4 leiper 1/4 asil battle cock. Lurena I might add Cy Taylor is no longer with us he passed away a few years back, but his sons are still in the business if im not mistaken.

Thank you Chad for sharing this valuable information. Definitively gives me a new perspective on the harold brown and Billy Ruble hatch. Always knew that they were leiper/hatch crosses but other members always said they were just hatch. I have also heard from other members in this site about Mr. Suttles Yellow legged Leipers. How Harold Brown would acquire these Leipers from Mr. Suttles. Thanks again Mr. Bolan and keep sharing some more information.

January 25th, 2013, 06:24 AM
Another note that I want to add is that several people have ordered leipers from Rat and Jimmy East and have claimed that they have Mareks dieses because the eyes on the leipers are not really red. I think that the eyes are pearlish because of the asil blood infusion and not due to the Mareks disease. Thats just my observation and opinion.

I would like to think when a Brown-Red was bred to a WH or vice-versa,ALL the off-spring would be straight combed. True Brown-Reds are sc and so are the WH's. And furthermore would show BR influence at half and half. The pea-comb must have been from a family of hatch and been bred back to hatch to keep them looking like the "leiper" we see today.

I was one of those people that bought Leipers from Rat , stags were showing signs of Merecks so I called Rat and he confirmed it to me, he also told me not show complitly empty, Had to cull several of my hens that were mated to the cock. It was a waste of time and money,they were not healthy.

The daughter, his only daughter i met , Russell Poole called her Becky,I have seen Mr. Flowers at the fights, but he was not very friendly to strangers and I whipped him the very first fight of a 6-cock derby i entered which made him all the less friendly, never visited his place until after he died, but Percy flew to the fights in Florida and Georgia I understand and i'm sure he knew all kinda folks,,,I went down to Percy's place with Russell Poole right after he died, about 1982 they had an auction shortly after but Poole and Flowers were friends and Poole got a pick and choice before the sale,,,,Russell got a bunch of chickens and about 20,000 he spent on Fox hounds, as Mr. Flowers was known for his dogs all over the country, he obtained the very best of both fowl and dogs that money could buy over the years,,,,they was (4) hens there that day Poole got that wore"blue bands" on their legs he got them, when we got back to Rougemont, where Russell lived I was already after him for two of the four hens,,,,so he laughed and said "Dick" take the two hens and take this cock and breed to them,,,,he said was the last hatch cock he had bred this way, the Alabama blood, so i bred the cock two seasons and he called and wanted the cock back, so i took the cock back and about that time Bill Ray gave me a hatch cock that was single mated to the old Percy hens and the half Percy, half alabama blood out of the cock from R G Poole,,,,,along about that time Ralph Whittington was fighting as good as anyone anywhere and i got a pit cock from him and bred to the Percy, Poole, Ray pullets, these were as good a foundation blood as any hatch that i ever had, and got a few more good ones over the years and added to that,,,,but every pure this that or the other is just another mans cross,,,,,BRK

I don't know how many people Percy had feeding for him over the years,,,but after "Red" Sweater Mcguinness,,,,,before I forget Col. Jack Claffey lived on Percy's place until he died and Russell Poole used to tell me that Jack Claffey got to feed Sweater's throw outs and the picked over stuff and fought better than Sweater did with the 1st choice stuff,,,anyhow,,,after Sweater,,,that's about the time the Johnny Monroe started feeding,,,for a short time, until they fell out of sorts,,,,Percy would also send cocks to people to feed, wanted them back in a freezer bag if anything happened to em,,,that he insisted one man that fed alot of birds for Percy was "Red" Peaks son "Cap" Peak, Mr. Peak was telling me years ago that Flowers would bring him to differant type hatch roosters,,,,,larger darker hatch roosters and a smaller variety of hatch that could really fight,,,,he would also bring gray roosters but the grays would sull on you, he was always after Percy to bring the little hatch roosters and most of the time they would win the derby,,,but Percy, he claimed had a love for those gray birds and wanted to shot them alot and they really weren't a very good rooster,,,,,think the last guy Percy had feeding roosters was Walter Upchurch the gaff maker,,,which he made a good heel,,most all this information is what was told to me by others that were there and actually witnessed what happened, Percy was not around but a couple seasons after i actually saw him for the first time,,BRK

A gentleman told me that Percy Flower also employed Bill Ruble. Sweater didn't want Bill Ruble to have his fowl I was told.

Sir, I do not know where there is any original Percy Flowers blood but, I fought against him and his blood. I can tell you that it as good as hatch blood gets.

Hi Mr. Ray, This is Galo's son. How are you doing?

My father was friends with john mckeldrey,Walter up church,Marion rose,and a guy who worked for Percy at the time of his death.the story from them was that Percy got the blue face from a relative of old man hatch after he died.the guy didn't want to sell at first but wasn't into gamefowl and eventually called Percy to come buy them.marion rose worked for Percy when sweater came to n.c. To work for Percy and he said sweater didn't bring any hatch there,just dark fowl.percy never bred dark fowl into his but sweater im sure got his start of the blue face from Percy and then probably added dark fowl to his.never seen a dark one from any of these guys who got them from Percy.hens always wheaten,cocks always light to darker red with lemon hackle.always straight comb.they are the best cutting hatch around,not fancy,but when they get in close,you are in trouble.hit hard and extremely tough.the guy who worked for Percy was given all the chickens he wanted by Percy's wife and he said they sold the crosses.no pure stuff left when Percy died.john mckeldrey was probably the nicest ,man I ever met,a real class act and my fathers start with the blue face came from a cock john gave him and two hens from Percy's employee when he died.and SIDS is right ,Percy used to breed 1/4 bluface,1/4 madigin grey, half leiper for battle cocks.they said those were best.too much bleface made them a little too low headed.they also cross great with asil.had 5 brothers like this that won over 20 times total.one cock won 3 of his 5 after getting rattled
