    Re: What Do you think of Lieper Hatch Fowl (In General?)

    rolando84, a lot of fowl are called hatches because they look like a hatch, leiper is one, like the majority of your breeds, the breeding has changed over the years, leipers do make nice crosses for lk

    they are super aggressive and fast. imo they need a little more smarts and pull their head back a little more cause of thier bulldog style and thats about it. some like their style pure though.

    Well reading the history from above the hatch that are good are actually leipers. He breed them for hatch and mclean. Sounds like hatch are the leipers doing not hatch. So this being said hatch should be called leipers.

    I do know this Johnny Mitchell got his chickens from Leiper and when i went to visit Johnny he called them Leiper hatch. So if you want to call them hatch call them hatch. That like some people calling democrats hatch when in actualality they are Griffin Claret and blueface cross.

    Re: leiper

    From my best understanding, Hatch blood was never infused into the original Leiper fowl. They are commonly called "Hatches" because of their "show" style. The original Leiper fowl were originated from an Irish Brown Red cock over a Kearney White Hackle hen. Leiper then crossed a Boston Round Head over the hens of the original cross, and then bred back to one of the Brown Red/White Hackle cocks.

    Re: leiper

    They were made exactly like the original hatch fowl.....brownred and whitehackle crossed....then the roundhead was put in them. They aren't technically a "hatch" fowl since they were bred by judge leiper and not sandford hatch...but before the roundhead was put in them, they were nearly the same.

    I guess they would be called "Leiper Fowl" since they were bred by judge Leiper. Like the "Hatch Fowl" were bred by Sanford Hatch.

    Someone correct me if I am wrong.

    Re: leiper

    Since Leiper and hatch are similar, I call them Leiper Hatch, cause a lot of breeders breed em together, Hatch and Leiper, so there is also something called Leiper Hatch.
    Its a blend of both leiper and hatch.

    Re: leiper

    In my opinion, today's leipers are hatch more than anything else...

    Leiper, Mclean, Gilmore etc... All just names to make birds more marketable. I am sure they may trace their roots back to the original blood but if you were to compare them to the originals as bred by their namesakes they would bare little or no resemblance in terms of looks and style.

    Re: leiper

    Hatch is a term used loosely to associate any fowl with green or blue legs. The original hatch come both green and yellow legged. I know a guy who still raises the hatch from Mr Hatch. He also said that would be one of his last lines he would part with.

    Some people like them some people dislike them they are just like any fowl. What I do know is that they use these a lot in the Mexican shows. You always see a Rat or Cedar Creek Leiper in a picture of a big Event in Mexico. They seem to be consistent winners in big derby's.

    i think the reason is cause they are very aggressive and cut well. once they get ya they dont let go. also are so aggressive dont give opponent time to think. jmo

    Everybody breeds differently. Some leipers fight and cut like roundheads and some fight like traditional hatch with a lot of bottom.

    Right to the point. I agree. That is why my lieper, penny, mclean and gilmore looks similar. Green legged, dark feathered and strong hitters chicken.
