The bird NWHU15C2799 bred by R&R Billington of Bagillt, North Wales contains a great selection of our bloodlines. The Father is from a son of Super 8 with a daughter of our great breeding couple ‘Top Star’ (Young King x Chanel) x ‘Sterre’ (Jonge Super Champ Orlando x Dtr King 1st Nat.Ace WHZB 1999)….The mother is down from our Dali cock with Daisy a daughter of Dirk Van Dykes 1st Provincial Orleans winner paired with the first one we bred from Golden Gaby and Gabrielle.

The Somerset Ace pigeon’s  pedigree is full of multiple performing winners on all sides of the pedigree, and congratulations are given once again to the lads involved.
