ukroosterman I agree with you, I personally know lads that have very good hennie blood in Ireland, not like a lot of the English type hennies, that look more like  rugby balls with feathers on then gamefowl but to me that goes for almost all English fowl of todays breaders no offence meant to anyone on here that bread English fowl just my opinion for what its worth,belucky if you wont good hennie blood pm me cheers mate

 I keep a few hennies ,  fig pudding, greys , blacks and whites however I have no problem parting with a few

as lads who have rang me recently will vouch. keeping something to yourself till it dies out is a pricks job pm or ring

no probs.. but if hennies from Ireland aren't good enough don't bother.    ps    rickey bohn stuff they aint.

mr bohn visited my two brothers a couple of times in the late 80s, at there home in wellsvile ohio, and they said he was a nice fellow, but he got himself involved in something that was not to good, but what a man dose in his own home is down to himself

   good speakin to you, be lucky, and look forward to meeting you when you come down, will sort you out with

some real nice whites as asked,  good to help genuine lads out and preserve the old lines in capable hands.

Good luck with them fellas .....
not my sort of fowl at all but each to their own ... I would call these half hennies due to the neck hackles and pointed sickles . No doubt these have full feathered siblings ?
