    the old hatch family then was purely straightcomb,green legs........the american breeders added boston roundhead blood.........since then ........came hatch family with peacomb,yellow legs.......and could cut and break well...and...still retained their unequaled gameness and hitting power.
    yellow legged mcleans........are the yellow legged hatch.......
    ray hoskins fowl is one of them........pinnon YLH is also an example........stuart YLH.....oakgrove YLH........etc. etc.

    mostly medium stationed cocks with broad back.......lemon to dark lemon hackles as well as saddles....black breast....peacomb.......green legs.......fast power shuffling hatch that can break good in the air.this is my foundation blood that i use to cross to any other fast shuffling,fast moving,cutting families of fowl like kelsos,roundheads,brownreds......etc. etc.

    i like hatches as broodcocks

    Ted Mclean, the breeder of the said hatch family, had his birds come Both yellow and green. I was told by people associated with him that they are the same. You can breed the green legged ones together and you might come up with the occasional yellow and vice versa. Mine came from Harry Parr, thru a friend. Mr Parr was Ted's friend and breeding partner. These birds are deep game but can not be fought straight in the knife. They do not know how to fight and need to be bred to the most a quarter, I think. Oh they also come straight comb at times, specially the yellow legged ones. I have some pics in gallery. This blood has won the pretigeous Claymore tournament at least twice, I was told.

    The original Sanford Hatch that Ted Mclean got was a cross between a Stone Brown Red and Kearney Whitehackle, the latter being yellow legged. This is why the Mcleans will sometimes come yellow legged. I have had some Kearneys from Floyd Gurley and they fight just like the Hatch. Deep game and strong, but you guessed it, can not fight that good. I have seen old man Floyd win with these birds with sheer gameness alone.

    The origonal hatch was

    Not such a great fighter, but they were bred for the "slow" heel, which is not a short gaff but like a short knife with a blunt or rounded point.

    With this weapon design, gameness, bottom & power are the prime requirements of a cock. The weapon design is not good for fast kills so gameness was the number 1 requirement.

    If you look at all the "good" hatches today (for gaff or knife) none are Hatch "Hatches" they are Mclean "Hatches", Doc Robinson "hatches", Perry "hatches" etc (no offence to those not mentioned there are plenty of good ones) which is the origonal hatch blood infused with that breeders "secret blood" to get them suitable for their weapon of choice and then "set" as a family.

    Yellow Leg Hatch

    Good info on YLH. Which you guys consider a good YLH to own or to have. Herman Pinion, Black Water YLH (Steward/Stewart), Harold Brown (oakgrove). What YLH can do? How it differs from sweater. Sometime they look the same? How can you differentiate one from the other? I appreciate your response. Have a lovely day everyone.

    whitehackle x brownred = hatch (power + shuffle)
    roundhead x hatch = yl hatch (brain, side step, tops the opponent + power shuffler)
    yl hatch x kelso = sweater (the kelso has the ability to fight in the air "salto")

    ..NO ! you are wrong,,Sanderford Hatch fought ten yellow legged roosters to every green legged one,,Sandy Hatch's main show fowl were Kearney Whitehackles and their crosses..
    ..Ted McLean bred primarily YLH,PC'ed and SC'ed..

    And according Carol Nesmith (on his article about his Blackwater Sweaters), he added Hoskins Yellow Legged Mclean blood to improve his Sweaters and "that was the blood that put the Sweaters back on the map".

    The original YLMcLean were made from a boston roundhead cock cross to a McLean Hen by Herman McGinnis, the bullstags that came from Herman McGinnis were crossed to a walter kelso hens by Walter himself, and made the "sweater". Blackwater's winning line is a half possum half yellow legged McLean hatch. ( 3/4 YLMcLean 1/4 Kelso) These were called the $5,000 Line, ginaya lang ni Dink Fair
