post #1 of 31

Hey, just saw this on the El Paso Craigslist, the bird is beautiful but is Highnoon Hatch a breed or the name of his business?

A hatch is commonly used as a fighting cock.  I don't know anything about the High Noon part.

In every fat person there may be a skinny one screaming to get out, but in every skinny person there is a fat one screaming to be fed!

Ahhh ok, I was wondering about that because it's a big sport here even though it was outlawed almost a year ago. Thanks a bunch.

Highnoon is a bloodline of the American Gamefowl "cluster" called Hatch. Hatch fowl take their name from Sandford Hatch who originated the first ones in New York decades ago. Since then many lines have been created, some of which have nothing in common with the original lines but had the named tacked on there to sell them better. Not saying that's the case here, they look like the typical Hatch - a b.b. red with blue or green legs.  $55 for a dozen eggs isn't that expensive in gamefowl.

hens make ok layers, if you keep taking their eggs. They have amazing instinct for broodyness and are great for free ranging. Don't get a rooster if you plan on trying to keep it anywhere where it can so much as see another rooster or you'll have problems.....

The rooster in the pic looks like a really good example of the breed and would probably be good for showing in shows sactioned by the American Game Fowl Society.

I just showed the picture to our head custodian who has a brother who used to cockfight. He said that is exactly what it is, don't even think about it! He said if I want a hen, he can get me a hen for free, just don't ask where or why. I don't think I'll do it though, as pretty as they are I just don't the peaceful existence on my land disrupted by a fighting breed. Thanks for the information all.

Wonder how long it'll be before this gets shut down? LOL

Gamefowl can actually be very nice pets. 

I agree, gamefowl with the bloodline named "Hatch".
