Still reading; I've been busy for hours! Once again can I say for anyone interested there is invaluable information on previous posts in relation to Gamefowl! Same interference and resistance from bloggers with little or no substantiated information and evidence; but if you comb through it! This material is priceless!
For those uncertain who Harris was, he was a colleague / good mate of Atkinson; both were obviously very fond of Hennies!
It is obvious that Hennies were seen by some of the best gamefowl around that's why they would have been importing them into Australia; if they were good enough for Atkinson and Harris, I would have been keen to import them also!
It seems shows in Australia didn't accommodate them nor see their value as fowl and the history associated with them! Perhaps they didn't conform to what they were chasing or just couldn't contribute to the fads and trends of the last 70 years; so gone are more great lines of fowls!
I have a couple of hennies like the others when they're through the moult; I'll post some photos! But I do like your male pegawl and found a few in the wineglass's gallery! Well worth a look for anyone interested!
