I believe the Penny's are a blend of 3 different strains of hatch that really nicked. But I'm not sure what they were, maybe some people here know. And by the way watch out for ole' Al Lockhart,sent me some fowl that weren't to healty and he loves to use pics of my fowl in his old ads----the gull in the pic is a butcher and the roundhead in the other pic isin't a cowan it's a shelton Nesmith cross. If you don't believe me just look at the backdrop of the pics compared to the others. When someone has to use other peoples pics to sell his own what does that say? He didn't even have the decencey to ask. Just be carefull. Not going to write anymore about that. BACK TO THE PENNY'S.
The Penny Hatch are ( I was told ) a blend of 1/2 Billy Ruble Hatch... 1/4 Claret... 1/4 Democrat... set as a family. If ya get the good one's you'll like em... mine came second hand from James Tally... really good birds but they mature a little slow.
My Tally Pennys ain't what I'd call mean... I can go in their pens to change out water... but, they demand respect & they'll get it one way or another! A rookie could make these mean real easy... the crosses ain't bad.
What Stations they come in? Do they come green legged ? Do they go vertical and shuffle well? My friend is willing to give me one of his penny pullets for next season to breed with my Doc hatch... Any input on breeding penny crossings? I don't want to waste these pure breeds..Oh I only have that one Doc hatch stag anyone knows whats good for his crossing next year?
NICE!!! vgood to cross with the kelso cock
great additional penny hens for our foundation stocks..
cant wait to see her here soon..
our penny kelso stags are doin good and they are very nice..
Penny hatch are the best hatch blood u can possibly get........now this isnt gonna sound too good we had a Sweater Grey cock bout two yrs ago...nice bird fastttt fasttt good station........well we bred him to a penny hatch hen and we got 6 stags...fought the grey and guess wat he RAN.... this yr we tested all 6 in the same show..... won 4 lost 1 and 1 draw the draw and the loss did everything they possibly could no signs of giving up..the draw our birds knife leg was takin out in first buckle and still lasted the other bird couldnt kill him i guess.....soo final note always test ur broodfowl before breeding and Penny hatch are the gamest i have seen will not give up at all...ooo and this show was in the sk
There is a guy in oklahoma that breeds penny hatch and he crossed it with kelso.if i'm not mistaken they came from tom dale. the name of the guy is crawford thomason hard hitting hatch/kelso blend but all looks like hatch the one he sent us, they are all look alike in color except for one which is yellow legs and turn out to be the best one. i don't know if the guy is still active in the sports.
i honestly believe you are right they are too crazy......just want to shuffle shuffle shuffle....had a penny broodcock we lost for this very reason and 4 sons being out of two different hens are already multiple winners.....but they are still hard to beat pure...in my opinion
dvaleros that is one good looking fowl you have there. Do you notice any difference in your dark penneys and you lemon pennys and was wondering if you get more lemons or dark ones?
Sorry for deleted post above didnt want to leave u hanging crucial lol. It was mostly about the pennys coming in real fast without taking the time to slow down and think. Like I said before I think mine are best for crossing and is there best trait. Who knows what might come down the road though with proper breeding techniques they might be molded into something you can fight pure without crossing.
