lemon 84

Mayor Juancho Aguirre claimed that in the sixties and the 70s, Negros was teeming with all the champion lemon lines. From the Lemon 84, to the blended Batchoy, to the Togo, to the Massa, and the Hinigaran Lemon. Basically from the Hatch-Butcher-Claret blends of the late Duke Hulsey, Paeng has been able to create sub-families from the original stocks.

Lemon 84 comes lemon hackled, peacombed or straight-combed and yellow and green-legged. Although lacking in gameness, Lemon 84 makes up for it with its almost automatic, instinctive and precise sense of timing when it clips the opponent in mid-air and throws his fatal punches or counterpunches. This is its most soughtafter trait despite its medium or low station.

The Lemon is low stationed and just loves to brawl. Tough like the Hatch and hard hitting like them too are these homegrown line of fighting roosters. The Left-In Lemon were the beautiful cocks and also the smart fighters. When these two were crossed, the resulting stock were some of the winningest among local gamefowl.
