Lot 50. Blue Checker cock GB17L42244
This cock was bred to concentrate the very best 300 to 600 mile Classic winning genes available in the Sport today. Just read the breeding and results maybe two or three times to see what we are trying to achieve with this cock. One of my earliest mentors in the Sport is Jan Hermans who advised me when I was young ‘We must only use the very best genes available. As many winning genes at the highest level as is possible in a breeding couple. Then we must let the capricious laws of hereditary do the rest’. That is what we have done with Lot 50. As far as the pigeon himself is concerned he is simply top class with dark orange eyes, strong supple muscles and soft silky feathering.
Lot 50 IN BIS Blue Checker Pied Cock GB17L42300. This is a Bold and Beautiful specimen of a cock bred from the very best we have.
