    Hi Brampton - my friend Galo Meliton 3rd is the one acquainted with mr. Billy ruble.

    according to my friend galo, mr. B. ruble is still active on his breeding but not the same as many at is used to be. So i think you can still visit him. goodluck!:hippie:

    Billy Ruble

    Bromptom2000, I use to fight with and sometimes against Gallo
    Meliton on the early 70's in Oklahoma when that was the only
    state that have long knife fights. Since he passed away I have
    not gotten in touch w/ his children, I understand they are in
    Canada.

    billy ruble

    we were inquisite about this historic figure and his breeding line, so we called his old number during the last quarter of 2003 and alas! guess who answered, .......the man himself. not a laizze fraire type of guy, he was direct and honest. he still breed the line of power hatch's but not as numerous as it was, you can still obtain fowls mainly thru phone correspondence only. he does not entertain visitors to his farm at that current time as it was a burden of effort for him. hope this help. thanks.........peace!

    Bill R.

    Thanks Bros.

    Your feedback on Bill R. Has been pretty consistent. Figures...the man has obviously aged considerinmg that he peaked in the PI close to the time of Hulsey. I remember those were the only two names that stuck to me when I was a child during the late 60,s to early 70's.

    A lot of people may not know it but quite number of todays good breeders have Ruble bred blood in their fowl. Yes, mainly for the power. Do any of you remember the Ruble Toppys? Yes, he did have tassled birds in the 60's.

    Again thank you sio much for the initiative bros. Let's keep the sport alive out here in the Americas...have to state it that way since I'm in Canada not in the U.S.

    o.
    Have we met before?
    I used to fight at Marulas, Mandaluyong and mostly at La Loma under the "Luring
    Guizon era" way back in the 60s.
    Been in some shows here.
    The only Gallo Meliton I know is the one handling my friends' birds and who also ties LKs (socket or fork).
    Let me know. God bless.

    Friend in Sport Brampton 2000

    Yes, I know the person you mentioned on your reply to me. He knows me personally, ask him when you see him.
    Also, I get my supply in the West part of Ontario plus a very good friend of mine Northwest of Ontario. A very good friend.
    I tried acquiring birds from the U.S. but keeps on procrastinating because of the bad publicities I see on the thread at the Pitmaster.

    Billy Ruble Hatches

    Eddie Araneta of Liza Galore fame still uses the Ruble blood in his own Hatch line the Karachi. I think 60% of the Karachi Hatch is Ruble Hatch. Mr. Araneta is still winning in the big leagues using his Karachi lines crossed to Sweaters (Mike Glover&Johnnie Jumper) and Dan Gray Roundheads.

    try to check out the thread below.

    I do.........

    I have bred an Abello Hi-Action cock over a Ruble hen this past year and I will probably take one of the stags and put him back over his mother next year. They are basically the same type of fighters and man when one of those green legged hatch is throwing feet on a long ground shuffle you can hear the meat being slapped around!!! We love those green legged hatch!

    Good day!

    Karachi Hatch is 90% Ruble Hatch

    cockmates,

    I stand corrected . . . I just read through the thread I attached in my previous response and based on Mr. Araneta's account on the perpetuation of his Rubles the Karachi Hatch would come out 90% Ruble Hatch from various sources. This was arrived at with 15% Larry Powell, 15% Bob Howard and 60% his original Ruble hatch line. The balance 10% is Ray Aleaxander blood of Claret-Roundhead.

    The Ruble hatches we had were all blue legs and lemon hackles, and boy were they some terrific birds. Excellent cutters and very smart. Much different style than the "go for broke" style of Mcleans we had. IMHO I would rate the Ruble a close second to Mcleans as far as Hatches are concerned.

    Bill Ruble

    With all the interest i've seen here about Bob Boles and his fowl , i've become interested in another man from that era . Mr. Bill Ruble .

    Everyone , please share what you know about Mr. Ruble and his fowl . From what I've read , he was one of the top breeders back in the 50's and 60's . I'd be interested to hear how he developed his bloodlines if anyone knows , and i'm sure alot more people would too .

    Let's make this the Bill Ruble 101 tread I believe that our history is worth studying . These's nothing new under the sun . From learning about Bob Boles and all the interest in his methods , we also got into mtDNA . What could we learn from Bill Ruble ?

    Here's my very small contribution . It's his ad in the feb. 1964 issue of The Gamecock . I think it says a whole lot about the caliber of fowl he was fighting and selling back then .
    .................................................. .................................................. .

    Present indications are that all of my available cocks , other than those necessary for my own requirements , will be booked for my Philippine customers . The same applies for my 1963 crop of stags .

    I can still mate some brood trios headed by outstanding greenlegged Hatch cocks of McLean-Blueface bloodlines as developed by me . Some of these are cocks that I have kept for my own personal use , however , I feel sure that I won't be able to breed from them all , so am offering them for sale at this time .

    If you admire beautiful , desperately game , tremendously hard hitting cocks that are bred from the choicest blood in the world , and have proved their ability in the greatest cockpits against the world's foremost cockers , you need some of this blood . I honestly don't think there are any cocks in the country that can defeat my cocks in 1 1/4 heels . In 1 1/4 heels ,

    I AM OPEN TO THE WORLD !!!!

    Ruble Fowl

    Research "Liza Galore" on this site for information on the Ruble lines. Eddie has had access to the best Billy bred for many years.

    Regards

    Was in correspondence with Mr. Layne of kimper farms a couple of years ago regarding his Penny Hatch (Heavy in Ruble Hatch) - says Bill is still up and about - can't recall if he's still in Ohio or in Ky now.

    Here's Chet's site-he doesn't know me as Unico:

    Cedar creek's right - looks like at the time, the ad you posted involved shipments mainly to this farm-see link:

    If you ever get a chance, you have got to hear Billy talk about his fowl and how he started them. I listened to him tell it on the dvd "A Company of Professionals" with Duke Hulsey, Harold Brown Curtis Blackwell and a few others. Seems he got his first hatch fowl from Curtis Blackwell. Then he got fowl from Sweater McGinnis. Most of the fowl he got I heard he got from Red Richardson. Mainly the blue face and Mcleans. Billy also raised alot of Marsh Butchers crossed with his hatch fowl. Thru the late 50's and early 60's Billy was almost invincible. I did have to pleasure to see Billy at Del Rio on a few occassions and once at Haverhill, Ohio when I was a young man...

    Now there was one hell of a good breeder, I no Billy personally. To my knowledge he is still in Ohio. At his peak in the 50's and 60's, 70's is was open to the world. He breed some of the gamest and strongest and alot of the biggest birds I've ever seen. You had to kill EVERY feather on them to win. He competed in some of the hardest competiton on the time and his fowl could cut pretty good. More game than any asil you can come across. I Billy's Blueface line (Straight comb) on my yard now, direct of the original breeder. Hellish birds, best when crosses though. Take care and a real good thread topic. -Joe
