Infused with the straight stuff Hatch traits--gameness, power hitting, and toughness.
The story of the Sweater is told by breeding legend RAFAEL "NENE" ABELLO himself in a video where he was interviewed by a gamefowl talk show host - that EUGENE BROWN (using his Oakgrove Yellow Legged Hatch bloodline) and CAROL NESMITH (using his Sweater bloodline) had partnered before in breeding their bloodlines together to come out with superior warriors in the pit (they called their breeding pure yellow legged hatch at that time) that gave them numerous Championships in the USA and even abroad. In the ensuing years, CAROL NESMITH became very popular with his POSSUM SWEATERS, while EUGENE BROWN became popular with his yellow leg and green leg OAKGROVE HATCHES. The story goes that Eugene Brown may have bred and crossed the yellow leg Stuart line with the Docs to come out with the Oakgrove Hatch bloodline. His original Stuart line actually came from the lines of Clarence Stewart. They just renamed into Stuart line to differentiate their breeding bloodlines. Way back in the year 1980, the original imported Oakgrove Hatches of my breeding friend and mentor, Kuya Joe Alimbuyuguen, produced green legged hatches. Kuya Joe actually bought and imported from the US, a Yellow Legged OAKGROVE HATCH broodcock, which was then 5 years old already, and is one of the original broodcocks of EUGENE BROWN, and also acquired 4 olive-green legged OAKGROVE HATCH pullets. In 1994, when EUGENE BROWN died in the U.S.A, Kuya Joe acquired again EUGENE BROWN's same family of OAKGROVE HATCH bloodlines - where he got the "19-straight wins" blood line or family - where 19 stag brothers of OAKGROVE HATCHES won in all their derby fights in the U.S.A. These were bred by Kuya Joe and Kuya Danny, who are very strict selectors of breeding materials and expert breeders. Kuya Danny was notorious as he would not hesitate to cull several pens of very expensive imported bloodlines from the USA - if these are below his breeding standards! These were the origins of our DRAGON WARRIOR OAKGROVE HATCH family of gamefowls! These became the foundation bloodline of our YELLOW LEGGED OAKGROVE HATCH - Captain line, and the GREEN LEGGED OAKGROVE HATCH - Vandamme line, which has been bred purely and perfected by our friend and mentor, Kuya Joe for the past 36 years and which we continue to breed at the DRAGON WARRIOR GAMEFARM in Lipa City, Batangas since 1990, when breeding gamefowls started as one of our passions in life. Thank you and more power wins to all our breeding friends in the Philippines and abroad. KEEP ON COCKING mga KaWARRIORS!
