    Question the butcher cock

    I'm doing some reseach before i start breeding and the name of this breed stands out ... May some one tell me from experience what are the positives and negatives of this breed? ..........

    using a butcher hen will pull down the station of the offspring, they will be medium station only

    Butcher blood will add gameness,power,early maturing fowls and SUPERB CUTTING ABILITY although the station is a problem coz they come low to medium station only...

    Phil Marsh (1869-1945) of Fort Plain, NY, creator of the Butcher bloodline, ran a meat market and named the Butchers after his profession.

    Butchers come in red, white, spangled and black. They are 100% straight-combed and come mostly white-legged, with a few coming out with yellow legs. Butchers are aggressive, powerful hitters with good cutting ability.

    Nelson Uy of Isabela has an excellent Butcher line. His Butcher crosses, especially the Butcher-Roundheads, are doing very well right now in big-time derbies. You may see them in last year's Bakbakan National 8-Stag Derby video, under the NU Redhawk entries.

    How about Mr. Bill Roberts Butcher? Can they get the job done?
    Once he told me, Mr. Nesmith used his banana legged butcher on the WSC.

    I just registered in the webpage but not really new in cockfigting. I am a Filipino based in California. Here are may thoughts.

    Butchers always cross well fellow light fowls. Giving them a Roundhead strain may help the station- they'll come out balanced. Fighting style would be almost complete & would do well in long-knife as a cock. Kelso-Butcher's sound ancient but a good stationed Kelso (Johnny Jumper's perhaps) would help it shoot-up. You'll find a chicken that breaks well, hard-hitting and deadgame.

    Oscar Akins (famed Bull Run farm) Butchers are what they use in bigtime fights in Manila. Boy Diaz President of the LGBA has this strain intact. His cross with Roundhead's (I think they are Lacy's) are his winningest birds.

    Pardon my sharing I'm pretty new in your community but I hope this helps.

    Regards,

    Butchers....

    I have not found a butcher that can withstand the gaff........yet to see a hit game butcher.

    They can cut, are smart, but they are cold.cold.cold.cold. I honestly would not touch one -sorry folks but bad experiences stay with me for a long time. My opinion only, im sure game ones are out there but yet to come my way(I've chewed and spat more than 3 families). Save your money and find a good Kelso instead - they do the same job.

    Bill Roberts is never been a breeder but a businessman. Dropping names to advertise his birds. The Nesmiths never use his bloodlines. They don't have to. Be careful with this guy! His bloodlines are runners - what i heard. Never had a losing season coz he never fights.

    JUST WANT TO ADD MORE TO WHAT yobetty has said !!!

    when the zambo whites came out bill roberts also claimed that the original birds came from him but that is not true !!! I do believe that the man likes to name drop.

    some years back when I visited Peter Uy He informed me that bill roberts claims are all not true... he has been to his farm in the states and one can't even consider it a farm.

    cheers !!!

    Bill Roberts

    Princess,

    How are you?

    A little story about Bill

    When I was in the States 15 yrs ago Bill Roberts shipped me a pair of them Runners ehem Butchers, The cock was definitely a reject as he would have only weighed 1.6-1.7kg at most. When they arrived they were rested for a week. I sparred them against Billy Rubles hatch stag. After 10 evasive breaks by the Butcher the hatch finally caught him and shook him once, he pissed off, looking for highway flying over the neighbours fence. That was last time I saw Bill Robert's butcher. The boys had the hen for dinner that night.

    i have seen a number of butchers from a breeder up north fought in the short heel. they didn't run. they were all light red, white-legged, straight-comb. no white or spangled ones at all.

    i have seen a few oscar akins butcher (a bit darker than the norm, white-legged too) and they didn't run too.

    having said that, i have been to a derby where a friend had a butcher. it was hit in the head with a long knife, he was squawking for about 10 seconds before he died.

    butcher

    Talking about Butcher, I aquired 1 hen from negros and I found out w/ her offspring cross to yellowlegged hatch are game and good cutting ability,but this time I'm breeding her with a roundhead cock to add more brain.
    For those interested to have a good butcher w/ gameness.power you needed, I knew a breeder in Florida "Silver Dollar Farm"but not sure if not sold out yet,because I heard many pinoy's been calling for thier butchers(Excellent cross to Roundhead) or (3/4 roundhead to 1/4 butcher) for LK.
    Thanks

    In Fairness to Bill Roberts Butcher

    I purchased a Trio of Bill Roberts Butcher (Sept 2003) and shipped it to the Phil. The BroodCock sparred well and because of his showing......good cutting ability and power we decided to give him a try in the Derby it was really a long hard fought battle but he owns the last two pecks....he survive though. He is now retired and earned the title BroodCock, his offspring will be tested next year and if one turns a runner tsk tsk tsk tsk I have BLULEGGED'S recipe.

    Talking wildfoot!

    get the butchers direct from marsh butcher in new york. red pearl legged and medium station and you will definitely change your mind about their gameness and rugged fighting style.

    Bill Robert Butchers...

    Three years ago I spoke to the man himself and asked him what is the make-up of his butchers. He told me the its a Marsh Butcher and a Speedy Grey crosses.

    In fact in fairness to the man, this is one of my few bloodlines then, when I started my breeding business almost 6 years ago. At that time I used to crossed them with my "Democrats" and G.Wood Lacy Roundheads. The results are unbelievable..winning back to back in every stag derbies i used to join then.

    Nowadays, i'm still using them as one of my base line in breeding to produce "battlecock" and still they can compete with the big boys.

    Hope this can be of help to others who still have his (Bill Roberts)bloodlines.

    Happy cockin'!!!

    The Butcher family that I've known for years now is very game and are extremely accurate cutters. They dont possess alot of power or size though because we have bred them so close for years. These are the most dependable fowl I've been around. Being too wet or too dry affects our Kelso's, Hatch, and Grey's. The Butcher's can stick a gaff no matter. No matter what breed you're looking for, someone has some junk for sale. Thats why ours haven't had any new blood added. Just cross them over some lacy roundheads to get a little size. Marsh Butchers are medium red, robin breasted, pearl legged, straight combed roosters. Some will moult out spangled or come spangled but most are red. I've never raised a white or a black. Red Richardson added some blood to his line and got an occasional yellow leg. Sam Caudle Sr. got some of this blood. They were good to him and have been good to Jr. I just don't know if they would be good to me.

    everybody knows that boy jiao greys are force to reckon with.very aggressive roosters that cut deep with accuracy.

    boy have his solid winning line of hatch-grey family that he is crossing to his solid butchers.the battlecross hatch-grey/butcher is his winningest line that are being fought with success in wsd araneta.

    Butchers

    Iv been successful to this breed, with the cross of Mel Simms Hatch, they are very intelligent cutters, power hitters, multiple shufflers, and very game. They came blackbreasted, straight comb, medium station, light to dark red. I never lose any of them so far.:teeth:

    my baseliners...

    were also butchers...when you see them drag...you can expect a sentencia...70/30 % winnings in butchers....just crossed them to any high stattion..if you want them in a derby...

    the best fight ive seen is a kelso vs. butcher fight..and the butcher emerges the winner...thats why i was impressed with them..and got a hold of their lines...
