My brother gave me his book to read during the winter and I was fascinated by all the wee motivators he came up with to get his birds winning. Very doubtful there would still be bloodlines from him that have been kept pure all these years but you never know maybe someone from around his neck of the woods would have them, good luck in your hunt for them anyway.

At one time Louella sold Workman Bakers which were mainly blue pieds. I doubt if they were very closely related to the original Stassarts.
