Here is the 18th different card in my N20 1891 Allen & Ginter Fifty Prize & Game Chickens collection. As mentioned in my last post about this set, I picked up a couple handfuls of these cards from an eBay seller recently. Today's card is the Silver-Grey Dorking Hen, which is one color variation of the Dorking breed.

The picture on the card looks pretty similar to the photograph I found here. According to the internet, the Dorking is named after a town in England. The breed was developed by the Romans and then brought to England, and is apparently the basis for many of the other chicken varieties in existence. I really like adding new N20's to my collection, and I hope to complete the set at some point in the next few years.
