This stunning cock is a son of Foxy Lady when coupled with Granger. He was bought by Tim Atkins from our auction in Blackpool in 2017 to pair to a hen GB16V49023 a direct daughter of War Drum and Sunday Girl that he purchased from our 2016 Doncaster auction.
In the Autumn of 2018 Tim rang to report this pair had bred some really promising youngsters from the very start. In a very short time they had won 4 x 1st clubs plus 1 x 1st and 3 x 2nd Warwick Fed winners from approx 1400 birds per race.
Late in 2017, Tim offered a youngster for sale from this couple via Pigeon Chat and it was purchased by Garry Inkley, who also bought the nest mate and another direct child of ‘49000’ with a different hen.
Garry has had a fantastic start to the 2019 old bird season that includes very early prizes from the offspring of Tim’s pair.
Last week from Honiton a yearling from the son of 49000 x 49023 was 2nd Fed against 2512 birds only beaten by his loft mate ‘Basil’ for 1st Fed.
A few weeks ago another yearling bred from the daughter of 49000 x 49023 dead heated with a loft mate for equal 1st club Blandford equal 4th Fed against 2,492 birds when the top 5 positions in the Fed was covered by less than 0.1 yard per minute!
The winner from Blandford also won last year as a youngster including scoring from NFC Countances.
War Drum has of course the proven record of producing good winners in his direct offspring as well as his grandchildren and now great grandchildren, however as ‘Foxy Lady’ was raced until 2016 she had not had the time for her offspring to show their worth. Very few of her bloodline are ‘out there’ but early signs are they are going to be top class.
The only direct daughter raced is a 2017 hen when she was paired to Propere Rik and was raced by Price Brothers and Son to win twice in the club as a youngster.
A 2017 full brother to this hen is owned by Howard Jackson and when paired to a daughter of Johannesburg bred 4 x 1st clubs in their first season.
Price Brothers and Son gifted Adams Brothers of Longton (They won 1st MNFC Ancenis beating Foxy Lady into 2nd MNFC) the first son of ‘Foxy Lady’ when she was coupled to ‘Blue Aviator’ and they raced her first grandchild to win 1st North Staffs Fed Frome against 4,200 birds as a yearling in 2018…
Mr Ideura from Japan bought a 2017 daughter of ‘Foxy Lady’ when paired to ‘Son Favoriet’ (Cor de Heijde) and when paired to a son of Propere from Rik Hermans she bred a 1st prize winner from over 1200 birds in her first nest in 2018.
The nest mate of M Ideura’s hen is a cock owned by an Essex fancier who prefers to remain anonymous and has also bred a first prize winner in club and Fed.
In the same Blackpool auction that Tim bought 49000 another son was sold when she was paired to Propere 10 and he was bought by Tam Blair in Scotland who bred two youngsters for racing in his first nest with both scoring and one of them scoring 6 times including winning 1st North West Fed Alnwick against 1,106 birds.
Tim Atkins also has a 2016 son of Propere 10 x Foxy Lady that has bred 3 x 1st clubs and 3 x 2nd Feds.
So when paired to different cocks and raced in different locations ‘Foxy Lady’s’ offspring have won well and wasted no time in doing it.
