    Re: Grady Fields

    He says in his add that he really liked Sweater's Ginger Hatch and Sweater really liked his Perry Hatch ...so they blended the two , now if I read correct , the Ginger Hatch were heavy in Red Quill. ... anyway his number is 405-247-5756 (since he posts it publicly, I didn't think it would hurt to post it here)

    I have both families of hatch from Mr.Fields,the perry and the ginger you cant go wrong with either family they are the roughest,gamest roosters you will find anywhere.His polecat greys are fine fowl also.Give him a call he will tell you anything you want to know.

    Dont know about a yellow leg family,the perry and the ginger are both green leg.He uses his leiper to freshen up the perry and ginger families,we've talked about his leipers and Mr.Fields said sweater got them directly from Mr.Harold Brown.

    Yes, Mr Fields has a solid family of Leipers that came direct from Mr Harold Brown. These Leipers are used to freshen both the Sweater and Perry hatches. The Leipers come pea comb almost always. They're perfect for being used as foundation blood.

    I like both families the same but when you cross them you get machines.I crossed both sides of the hatch to the polecat grey this year and am excited to see the results.I also crossed the ginger side to the rocky top kelsos i have and they are awesome.

    Re: Grady Fields

    For those that had his Ginger Hatch. Do you think they are Ginger Hatch, or just what he called them. Grady told me about a year before he died that 1/100 hens came ginger.

    I had a friend tell me about some Ginger Hatch he saw years back in Ok, and all of hens were ginger. Does anyone know anything about any like that?

    Bubba1117,

    But do the hens come "ginger" ? He told me the cocks did not, and only 1 1/100 hens were ginger.

    Is there still a family of Ginger Hatch with ginger hens?

    The perrys usually come darker both stags and pullets,not all of them but some of the perry stags come as mean as a rattlesnake that's the only downfall I've had with them.

    Bubba can you tell me some info about the Perry Hatch? Heard they are very game and are well suited for american or mexican show. What style do they posses? I'm debating on a perry hatch or penny hatch trio that I want to purchase. Just want know more about the perry hatch.
