    Bates Greys

    I was looking to acquire some of these from my friend. What do you guys recommend to cross them with? i was gonna cross with my sweater and with my hatchet bloodlines and see which way was the best.

    If those greys were untouchable, and you still discarded them, then those Reds of yours must be really good.

    I have some reay hoskins hatch blood that came from Carol Nesmith beforehe went off. I wonder how that would cross with them.

    Hoskins grey are where the famous CAT stinger greys came from. Medium sized birds low to medium station but they were great cutter and fast. Cross them with a yellow leg hatch and you will have a complete warrior.
