    Sherrill Penny Hatch... Tom Dale, James Tally & Tom Hargus have proved their worth in the Gaff.

    I have never showed in gaff but I would think a pea combed mclean crossed to straight combed yellow legged hatch. Power, speed, shuffling, and gameness.

    Majority of gaff fowl contained some hatch in them for long heel. Then again we historically speaking. I have seen pure pure blues do well in the gaff and several other pure strains to be honest. It is all about where you get them and how they well they are cared for.

    Re: Gaff cock whats the best blood for gaff ?

    Since you are a beginner my suggestion would be to not to buy a trio of expensive chickens first thing .. Talk with the local chicken men in your area ...What good breeds
    are in your area to choose from ??? First thing to learn is there is no BEST... Across the
    states there are so many good breeds for gaff to many to list although everybody will list one A DIFFERENT ONE .... Take it from an old cocker to start with find a good local powercock and bred it over a good speed hen .... talk to your local cockers explain what you want to do ask for their helpful suggestions on the above cock and hen ...
    FORGET ABOUT THE BEST DREAM CHICKENS ,READ EVERYTHING YOU CAN... LEARN
    BEFORE YOU LEAP YOU NEED TO LEARN WHAT TO DO WITH THAT BEST BREED BEFORE YOU EVER GET THEM ... TFIS EDDIE

    From what ive seen of his whitehackles, Lowmans, he is right, but I haven not seen many WH that impressed me as much as Shamos did when i saw them hand sparred, they broke to the end of their cords and one actually hung his spur in the dummy rooster, never saw that in a hand spar session before, if i were to get WH these days Id definitely be talking to Supershamo about some of his!



    But you likely wont find WH like shamos many places, find you a good family of greys that movequick and pull feathers when they are sparred, mainly make sure they dont DUCK! I hate hatches cause most are duckers imo, so I rather have a good family of greys instead.

    Befriend other cockers. Sit and listen. Ask questions for about a year then have someone help you select fowl. Don't go on just name of the fowl only. Its the breeder that matters.

    Re: Gaff cock whats the best blood for gaff ?

    Good advice here from da mongoose. Being friendly in this sport goes a long way. Some of my best families of gamefowl came as gifts from friends. I had friends build me rest stalls, had friends that were electrician wire up my cockhouse with enough lights to light up 5 homes. My barn was built by friends. Without friends, this sport would have cost me at least double.

    Penney hatch & Cardinal Club Kelsos would be a solid start. Winning then and now, and very consistent. Good Luck!!!

    Most blood can fare well in the gaff...If they are game enough. A good hatch blood is a good start. You can pretty much go in any direction you like speed power or whatever... as long as they can cut accurately. Accuracy is the key in gaff fighting...there is no sharp knife so they got to hit the sweet spots.

    Re: Gaff cock whats the best blood for gaff ?

    I don't think it's so much a specific breed of fowl that can be said to be the best for gaff. It's a family that can consistently wreck the opposition in the first couple of pittings and if for whatever reasons he was not able to do so can continue to cut throughout the fight and is game enough that he will never stop trying to win. You must remember there is no time limit in the gaff and gameness will be severely tested in a long drawn out affair.
