But Willem, I was only replying to your comment by giving you a number of very different countries where the Bankiva fowl did not change.
Your other point about the weapons and rules is 100% correct and elementary. It is believed that this is how the Asil / Oriental fowl came about in the first place ? Which brings this topic back to the Canary isles, of all the places in the World where they use postizas there is probably no place more suitable for Bankiva fowl than the Canary isles, only 10 minutes long, with longer spurs.
Those old photos which are just like Canary cocks are from about 100 years ago so they already had those Oriental features long before WW2.
The fowl of the Canary isles seem to be a very mixed bag. The question is were the first ones all like that ? Or at first did they vary from island to island ? I would like to post some more very old photos for you guys later on .... Regards Eddie
