Oldstrain ;we still have the Gits ours go back to Donkern ; Queen & Ref C they were his older strain before he introduced the Soffles that produced the Feather legs thats around 1900 for memory ;Ours were imported in the 1890s from T W Thorugood from Sefton near Liverpool through his 26a etc which came from gits ;cheers

I will have a stab O/S Wink Wink & even put my reputation on the line "What ever that is" here Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes & say it wasn't a head wind. Great to read these tales from the distant past etc & one can only admire the birds of that time & the owners that took up those type of challenges, in the early days. cheers

A bit of backloading O/S Wink Wink lol! lol! lol! after dropping off another load of pigeon sh**e Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes here I suspect. Now, I'm not quite as old as K bounce bounce 1900 era Smile Smile here, but I will throw a few on board, for the little pirat  which I've had since around 1972 & I will garuantee you would be embarrassed to put them in a basket on basket night etc with there feathers Wink Wink. cheers

A hell of a lot tougher Smile Smile than the the ones that fly in now, here in air conditioned comfort I suspect K. XXX. My thoughts go back to the 19 hen mentioned by Hal & the travel conditions they all had to bare to get home from 500 odd miles around the time lol! lol! lol! you were born Wink Wink. cheers
