"British Game Fowl" by Ian Kay covers the history and development of Game Fowl in the UK. From the birds brought to the shores by the Romans and Phoenicians, early cockfighting and Game Fowl Clubs, through to the current exhibition breeds of Modern, Cornish/Indian, Oxford and Carlisle Game.
There is a chapter solely devoted to the Game in Australia. James Bishop helped the author to bring the information together and with the support of some excellent photographs there are pictures of well known breeders or their birds, past and present, like Athol Pengilley, Reg Tutty, James Bishop, Terry McCallum, Gary Hart, R Johnstone and others
In A4 size with over 35,000 words, supported by nearly 300 colour and sepia photographs, some of which are from the 1930s that have never been published before, including a great selection taken at the Oxford Game Club Shows where Herbert Atkinson was Supreme Champion with a Lemon Cock in 1931. Other photographs are of the original Red Quill, Ginger Reds, Hennies, Honey Dunns and many more.
British Game Fowl is not just Historical, it is Heritage, which will appeal to both new and experienced breeders and exhibitors, providing tips on exhibition and breeding pens.
Not only will you enjoy reading the content, you will be able to admire the wonderful photographs, probably for many, many years to come.
