    Hatch was last name of orginal developer of the line. Most game lines are so named. Some names have reference to color.

    Brown Red are crow-winged with nearly black breast. hens tend to run dark and chicks hatch black to to chocolate brown.

    I do not know particulars of that line but if it is referred to as Harold Brown Hatch then his starting point was assumed to be dominated by Hatch in its background. Appearance often differed in some way between Hatch lines as a function of introduced blood and / the breeders selection process. Random chance also plays a role. The competition at the time also plays a role with respect to style.
