my blueface hatch broodstag from lucky strike gamefarm.the famous jackhammer line
Does anybody else still have blueface that come with pale faces, ours have white ear lobes, pale faces, very dark in color.
Correct me if I am wrong. Recently we went to a friend an old timer. He show us 4 blueface hatch looks like full brother. They are all multiple winner. This is what I noticed their faces seem to be pale but they are healthy. I think a pure blueface should look like this (pale face ) Thank you.
lets wait another old timer blueface breeder to enlighten us again about what the real one blueface are.

The Origin of the Blue Face Hatch
By Jack Powers
(The Gamecock Magazine, October 1982)
THE FOLLOWING IS WRITTEN FOR EXPRESS PURPOSE OF ADDING LIGHT TO THE ORIGIN OF THE Ted McLean Blue Face Hatch, and - also to the breeding of the Sweater McGinnis Blue Face Hatch.
The information which I am about to disclose, was relayed to me by people involved directly, namely, Heinie Mathesius and Sweater, both of whom could be considered tops in our sport.
Everyone must agree that Ted McLean was the founder of the strain which has become so popular, that hundreds of breeders have infused the blood into their favorite fowl, to improve their power and cutting ability.
While returning from the Lally Memorial, in Scranton, PA. (which Sweater had just won 9-1). My party and I met Heinie Mathesius at a diner in Milford, PA, and the conversation, naturally, was about the remarkable stags Sweater had shown.
During the conversation, and comments, Heinie told the story about the start of the McLean Blueface. He stated that he had received a phone call from Ted McLean, asking him if he had a green legged cock which he could send down to him in Maryland, as he wanted to try one over a green legged hen. Mr. McLean was a personal friend of Mr. Hatch and had been breeding Hatch fowl for many years, having spent many of his boyhood years at Mr. Hatch’s place, on Long Island, NY.
(to be continued)
As it so happened, Heinie was preparing a main of cocks for Mr. Hatch, and among them was a green legged cock that was apparently healthy in every way, but while working on the bench, would turn blue in the head. Heinie stated that he shipped this cock to Mr. McLean and he was mated to a green legged hen. The result was The McLean Blue Face Hatch which became so successful.
In regards to the Sweater Blue Face Hatch, when Sweater came from Oklahoma to work for Percy Flowers, he brought with him several hens, of the Whitehackle type that Mr. Hatch had fought so successfully for many years at Troy, NY and other places. I do not know the breeding ot those fowl, but apparently they were heavy in Whitehackle blood, as they were bright red in feather and carried white in their wings and tail. They were dead game fowl and won many battles after being severely injured. The only fault they had, they were inclined to be low headed.
Sweater was able to obtain a Blue Face cock from Mr. McLean and he mated this cock from Mr. McLean, to some of the hens (Hatch hens) that he had brought with him to Mr. Percy Flowers place. This cock was known as Old Long Tail, as his streamers nearly reached the ground.
Sweater told Earl Mull a close friend of mine, that one of his Hatch hens mated to Old Long Tail, produced stags which held their heads high, and the offspring of this mating were his Blue Face.
I believe the offspring of this mating were probably the greatest fighting machines I have ever had the pleasure of witnessing, as I saw them win the Lally Memorial, in Scranton, PA on two different occasions, winning with a score of 9-1. And hundres of cockers throughout the country are fortunate enough to have winning fowl, which carry some Blue Face blood.
