FOWL OF THE OLD AND NEW WORLD DARK CORNISH (SEE TEXT, PAGE 440) A strong strain of Game Fowl runs in the veins of the Dark Cornish, which has won favor as a table bird in America because of its yellow skin. There are three varieties-Dark, White, and White-laced Red. The feathers of the Dark Cornish have double penciling (see page 388). BLACK LANGSHANS (SEE TEXT, PAGE 414) Like the Brahmas and the Cochin (see Color Plates IV and XVI), the Black Langshan is a massive bird with feathered shanks. It is a native of China, from the Langshan district.
