    A friend of mine got some about 7 years ago. They weren't stag fowl. As 2 year olds they was good, accurate birds that stayed mostly on the ground and tuff.

    Re: Best Spangled Hatch

    from dee cox
    The great speckled bird or better known as the Garrard Hatch or whatever you
    want to call them, is an old breed of gamefowl that have stood the test of
    time and are still winning with an utmost high percentage today. These fowl
    have a long history of great breeding behind them, Billy Ruble who was a
    famous man for his power Hatch cocks, Harold Brown had these Hatch cocks that
    he and Curtis Blackwell got direct from Ted McLean. Harold let Billy have
    these cocks; the ones they liked best were getting old. Billy bought the old
    cock and bred them brother and sister, which came out spangled. Harold Brown
    and Billy Ruble did not want spangled chickens so Ed Garrard got the spangled
    fowl from Harold Brown. These were strictly POWER cocks.

    Foxie was Ed Garrard's wife's brother, who was a referee. Richard Bates at that time had
    the highest breaking power and cutting cocks at that on the circuit. Richard Bates was in a short heel derby and had a cock that had a broken wing and could not see. Ed got Foxie to buy the cock from Richard which was a tall, high stationed spangle cock.

    This cock had to be fed by hand to mouth for a long time. The cock never did get to where he could see. Ed Garrard was determined to breed this cock; he was put in a 4 by 4 pen. The cock learned where his feed and water was. Ed bred this cock over the
    spangled McLean hens then put them together. The Bates and McLeans came out
    Green and Yellow legged. Harold Brown bred to the Green legged side, but got a
    few Yellow legged chickens. A man by the name of Massey in Mississippi took
    these and bred to the Yellow legged side with great success(but that is
    another long story). Ed Garrard bred the Yellow legged side 5/8 by 3/8; Richard Bates bred both 5/8 by 3/8 together and made a set strain. The cocks were not only good but also reproduce well, and I have had the fowl since 1964.

    They have kept on producing and the offspring have kept on reproducing. Personally I think they are better now than they have ever been. I took the Spangle Hatch and made a family, and also took the Red ones and made another family. Bud MacPearson was the only one I would swap bloodlines with. When Ed Garrard got sick, Bud and myself inherited these fowl. We got the ones we wanted. Bud MacPearson who was a great friend of Red Richardson got an Albany cock and bred it to the Spangles, then went to the
    Albany side(the Albany fowl from Mr. Red Richardson is another long story of
    great history). Richard Bates right nose Blueface bred to Percy Flowers Hatch..... May everyone have friends such as I have ,and had

    Re: Best Spangled Hatch

    For those of you in the know, which story regarding the Gerrards makes more sense the one above or the one I am posting? ( The Gerrards I have seen have a different body confirmation then a typical "Hatch")


    Garrard Hatch

    ED GARRARD HATCH, The Feathered Warrior, July 1999 by Carl Saia aka "The Breeder"
    This family is known by many other names, such as Biloxi Hatch, Spangle Hatch, Speck Hatch, Little Ed's, and originally they were called McLeans, by some, including me. This family, according to Ed, traced back to a spangle McLean Hatch, that was bred and fought by Harold Brown at the old Biloxi Pit. Harold fought this cock, a three time winner, the cock was beaten and looked to be dead. So Harold threw him on the dead pile. Later on Ed walked by, saw the cock was still living, picked him up, took him to the cock house, gave him penicillin tablet. Next morning, the cock could not stand, but he would show against another cock. That evening the cock was standing and trying to crow, so Ed took him home. At this time, most of the Garrard fowl were based on Harold's Red Fox Fowl. I do know Ed bred this cock to a Morgan Whitehackle hen that he got from Frank Hooks. I had a half Kelso, half Judge Lacy hen that Walter Kelso sent to my partner David Harding for the use of one of our Judge Lacy brood cock on three separate occasions (cock always was returned). Ed saw this old hen, and decided he wanted to breed the spangle Biloxi cock to this hen. The progeny produced some excellent pit fowl, and was almost set as a family.

    Re: Best Spangled Hatch

    Cont.
    Later on Ed called me to come over and see a 22 time pit winner he had borrowed from that "great Hawaiian cocker Mr. Lee". This cock Ed called an Aseel, I believe he was an Aseel cross, according to his feathers. Ed asked me to pick out some hens to mate to this cock as he had to return him to Mr. Lee. I selected several hens, (I believe 4) that were out of the Biloxi cock, and put them in that Aseel's pen. After about a week or so, Ed started saving eggs when he was certain all the hens were fertile to the Aseel cross cock. Ed had me set the eggs of this cross and I hatched off some 30 odd chicks. Ed told me to keep a few and give him the rest, that gave me some of the fowl, I was now calling them Biloxi, along with Ed. In 1970 Col. Victor Lee Chun visited Ed's home, it was there I met Mr. Lee's grandson, one very fine gentleman. Several years ago, Col. Chun visited my home, and told me that the Aseel cock only received one cut in all of his fights and that he had the honor of sewing up that great cock after he had won his 22nd fight, and then was retired. The color of the Garrard fowl can be varied from one breeder to another. Some can be straight comb, others look like dark leg Roundheads. The cocks will stand out in any group, as they are tall, long legged fowl. Colors of this family can range for cock, from black breasted reds, some of these have white specks in the breast, and on other parts of the body. Most of the leg color is green or dark legged, lots of them look like long legged Lacy Roundheads. The hens have many color variations from dark spangle to a wheaten color, with green or dark legs and a Roundhead type of body.

    By the way I am not trying to discredit anyone or their story, I am just curious and am trying to explore the make up of the Gerrards.
