    If you got good Leiper and Gavilan , you got the makings of some sk monsters ... the old Blueface were good to cross for the single edge sk ... but these crazy double edge or socket sk wouldn't be in their favor as much . The Blueface shine when you can draw them down and put those little blades on them and let them just out punish the other bird with the back side of it if needed ... you add too much cut into the equation and you better stick with Leiper or Gavilan ...

    The best hatch birds today are I believe Chunky's, I've cross these on my place and they made My fowl better, there deadgame, throw feet, no bill hold and the most important, they can cut! I know there are a ton of GL chicken breeders, but to me when a green leg can cut like a yellow or white rooster to me that is special.

    All this is interesting. I'd like to tell the history of my hatch fowl. I'd not say they were pure in iny fashion. I bought a trio from my bro. In law. They were two sisters and a son of one of them.. I bred the cock to the two hens. I had some great fowl hens a and cocks from this mating. 30 years later they still good fowl and still cross great with the mugs.

    If GLH fight like RH do RH fight like GLH? j/k.. try a Reg grey. 3 GLH families to maintain, or 3 to make 1 your own strain for performance? do you have any greys? or is this a GLH Project? .......


    p.s I love GLH.. just hard to choose what strain..I would end up getting three too

    Now days hatch chickens are a lot better overall than many years ago I've only had hatch for 25 year or so but mine don't hold a candle to some I've seen but I've noticed some changes in them I see more that can't take the punishment they once did used to have to be a good handler to cut them down and count them out now they just like other chickens you can kill them I know most will disagree but most hatch have lost something

    Year after year I fail to see any better than my XYZ. I made them to suit me HatChet/Ruble/McLean~blend since 1995. Plenty of cut with ton of bottom & power. Now OP if you got 2 Green leg lines you like of hatch, why you need a third Little Lacy or Kelso i could understand.

    If you can find good ray hoskins hatch I'd say them. There are plenty of good families but most have been tweeked with to make them more fliers imo but if you can find good ole hoskins hatch them things were known for good ability, cut and gameness

    No they mature slow as 5 year old spurs still look like bullstags. I blame it on the Chet blood. You asked good though so good Yes. Much better as 2+ years old and up. Crossed they much better younger than as pure/straight. They bout 1/2 come a blue leg that bothers the color folks. I should say those that are purest for color!

    It was 1/4Chet blood from my Original Roger Roberts HatChet cock i started the line with. The 8 hens was Ruble 4 Mclean 2 R/Mc 2. I bred cock to all 8 hens. He was stolen. So I bred best to best and continue to. So 1/8 at most Chet blood in any now. I did breed back to Ruble hens more than others so 1/8 Chet is a far stretch today.

    As far as I know, Mr Leiper never raised any Hatch. Leiper is it's own breed, at least it was when Mr. Leiper worked for Mr. Hatch, back in the day. Mr Mclean was an outstanding breeder and can be considered one of the people that made Hatch a great breed. Gavilans were once top of the line, but the few I have seen have been average or worst, lacked gameness.

    To answer the question of best Hatch. I like Wello Hatch, they are still winning down in Mexico and they are just thugs that will trade punches to the death. Not much on defense, but they will try to power though another rooster. Wello has been dead for years now, but his kids still keep the breed alive, but do not sell very many if any at all. The ones that I know of down in Mexico are a high win types and are never for sale.

    I like the bates, the ones I have are smaller roosters
    But seem to hold their own, and cross well..
    They suit me.
