    battle crosses

    i got 5 new birds recently.
    lacy roundhead broodcock, hatch broodcock, kelso stag, albany pullet, leiper hatch pullet.
    i just made the broodpens, and am planning on crossing my lacy rh, to albany and leiper hatch pullet.
    if anyone has crossed these fowl before please give me some input on how they turned out, their fighting style, etc.
    im not much for kelso, so i havent thought about breeding him yet.
    should i also breed the hatch broodcock to the leiper hatch hen?
    how would those turn out?
    besides the lacy rh crosses, i would like hatch albanys from my hatch broodcock and albany broodhen.
    does anybody have any info on these crosses? would these be good short gaff or short knife birds?

    Hey, a buddy of mine crossed a Roundhead with a lieper, and gave him some great cocks, he went to a 7 cock derby and came out with 5 wins 1 loss and 1 draw.
