2013 INTRODUCTIONS

"Now He's Talking" to continue his career in the breeding loft..

 

After topping the federation for the fourth time in the West Essex Fed last season 2012, BLUE 906 or better known as NOW HE'S TALKING has finally been transferred in the stock loft to continue his breeding success...

Being a widowhood cock, he has only bred a few birds and these birds have proved to be winners in their own right,  and in turn, their offsprings were also winning racing machines...

2010 OLD BIRD SEASON

 

The 2010 old bird season has been one of my best achievement in this wonderful hobby of pigeon racing.  Racing with only a handful of birds (8 widowhood cocks), i was able to achieve yet another milestone by winning 3rd Combine LNRC (London North Road Combine) 330 miles. This feat has won for me 1st club and 2nd federation Dunbar as well.  

The winning pigeon that made me proud is named Juan Dela Cruz (a personification of the Philippines)  from a Van Loon crossed with an egg bred in the Philippines by a successful fancier friend Joshua Vizcarra (the egg was from an ace pigeon north road champion hen crossed with a 600 kms. champion cock in an inter-island south road race).

2009 SEASON UPDATES

 

After missing most of the races this 2009 season due to unforeseen circumstances, birds are back on the road and ready to make a last ditch effort to be in the prize list.  With only 5 widowhood cocks in the race team, the first race after a 5 week break, yielded an impressive 1st club, 4th federation,  and 11th place in the amalgamation 180 miles with 8 federations and approximately 4,100 birds competing.  

The winner is a 2 year old Van Loon chequer cock named "Macfritz" after my good friends Mac and Fritz, after they diligently looked after the birds while I was away for a month and with this I am very grateful.

The following week, Macfritz achieved another milestone by winning 2nd Club, 7th Federation, and 17th Amalgamation 200 miles 3,500 birds in a smash race....
