I found this on eBay and could NOT resist it!

I'm going to frame all of it including the box.....has anyone seen/played it before? Maybe 1930's-40's?

I particularly like the 'setting' cards :)

Wow! What a bonanza. I need to hang out on ebay more.

It looks like it's published in 1920: http://museumvictoria.com.au/about/mv-b ... 11/?Page=2

You know you're addicted to poultry when you buy a 1920's chook card game off the internet. :rofl: :rofl:

It's out of copyright ... I'm SURE we could work out a way of re-printing it ... I just love the precision of the whole thing - the names of the breeds, the "hen deserts eggs" (obviously a common problem!), the preservation of the eggs in waterglass (no longer done) ...

... and I just saw the pic for "hen dies".

Oh MAN. I wanna set!! :)

Clearly this game was designed by people who have had chooks.

What do you think Fee, can we get a set of these together in time for the next CBYP meeting?

If we could get good pictures of the cards *makes pleading puppy-eyes at Domestica* we could just print them on an ink-jet printer.

A laminated set could be made up at a later date.
