FOWL OF THE OLD AND NEW WORLD DOMINIQUES, ONCE FAVORITES BUT NOW DISAPPEARING (SEE TEXT, PAGE 444) It has been more than 175 years since the first purely barred chickens became widely known in our Eastern States. They received the name "Dominique" about the time of America's first poultry show, in 1849. (See studies in barring, page 388). © National Geographic Society RED PYLE GAMES (SEE TEXT, PAGE 440) One of the most extensively bred of the eight varieties of Exhibition Game Fowls recognized as standard in the United States. The modern "egg machine," producing from 150 to 350 eggs a year (see Color Plate VII), and the giant flesh fowls (Plates 1V and XVI) both owe much of their development to man's love for the gamecock.
