    Re: Blackwater and Dink Fair 5K Sweater

    hmmm, the blackwaters are more of rushing fowls.. while the dink fair $5k sweater are those who weaves and then hits.. 5k line usually wins with style.. the blackwater though has a scary tendency to hit or get hit first.. im more of a dink 5k person.. but when you spar the blackwaters.. they're more sensational coz you see lots of feet and speed here and there..

    body type.. i think the 5k is better.. 5ks are more picture cocks than the blackwater lines.. 5ks are more compact and rounded while the blackwaters are a bit longer.. if you're more of the ratatat type of cocker.. id suggest blackwaters.. if you're more of the handsome and calculating chickens type.. id suggest the 5ks..

    blackwaters cross well with roundheads and lemons to balance their agressiveness.. while the 5ks could cross well with hatches and YLH's to give more oomph to their style.

    just my short take on the thread.

    I do not own sweaters,and I have seen video of both type,all I can say is I seen some Blackwater sweaters that were barn burners,and they cut another cock before he know he is cut..I myself would like to find a breeder in the US that has Blackwater Sweater.I would love to see some mug crossed with them,they would be fast moving fowl,I would also liket to see some Alabeny crossed on them.I think Albany fowl are some of the most looked over breed of gamecocks

    Dink Fair has good Albany..Estel Baker has some outstanding Black Brassback Albany.
    I still think Albany over an over looked breed

    they have both good fowls but i am more comfortable ordering with DF though his price is a little bit higher than BW. with DF you get what you paid.

    If you want good Albanies I would say go with Charlie Johnsons.Best Albanies I have seen compete.

    Re: Blackwater and Dink Fair 5K Sweater

    Good day to all,

    I bred a 5K Dink Fair Sweater pure ones from Firebird Gamefarm.. Some of my chicks came Yellow leg Dirty Feet.. Does Dink Fair infused some blood that has Dirty Feet on it?

    What are the lines that composed the 5K Dink Fair Sweaters? maybe it has lines that have Dirty Feet.

    Can someone help me..

    Thanks in Advance
