    Bates Grey and Bates Hatch Differences

    for those of you familiar with both families of fowl, i was curious about the similarities and differences in the pit qualities and physical bearing of the bates greys and bates hatches...

    do the bates greys have any of the bates hatch infused in them?

    thanks...

    thanks for your replys...

    most of the bates greys i have seen or heard talk of were very "hatchy" type roosters that could still cut... deep game power fowl with bottom and cut.

    i'm just curious how different the bates hatches were from them in style and performance, as i have not been around any bates hatches.

    the bates greys i have seen, if you you painted them red would be very good hatch fowl. so i'm wondering how different the bates hatch fowl actually are from the bates greys...

    thanks

    my bates greys are from larry carter, we got them way back 2008 as a pair. the BC does break high with feet out but is so bad on the ground, but when crossed to kelso, black and frost greys, they perform exceptional. my friend who has bates hatches(big tail) crosses them with asils and so far that is his winning line.

    Nice stag Unexpected. My Bates Grey broodcock looks exactly like yours except his legs arent quite as long. I just got a pair of them a few months ago and the hen was setting and something pulled her through her pen and killed her. I was able to salvage a few of the eggs and 3 hatched yesterday so hopefully one is a pullet.
