This Sweater strain is an old line Carol NeSmith blood originated from Possum family. According to Charlie Bailey he obtained “seeds" of this strain in early 90's while he was breeding for Carol. He bred the "seeds" since then without infusion of outside blood until he was met by the owner of Calvin "J" farm who acquired this strain (including McLean YLH and Gilmore on respective page of this website) in August 2008. Charlie indicated further that this wonderful strain is well-matched to cross-breed with yellow legged hatch.
The females produced by this Possum Sweater family have been bred in 2010 season over the Newton Wade Sweaters. The purpose of Calvin "J" Farm was to establish blood foundation of its farm out of Possum and Newton Wade Sweaters (directly related creatures) to further develop combatant gamefowls.
