I had a very welcome message from Wayne Boulton of Boulton and Harvey the top Worcestershire Fanciers reporting winning 1st MCA Truro against 1042 birds with a hen that also won 2nd Fed Yeovil earlier in the season , beaten by a loft mate.
Boulton and Harvey visited us a couple of years ago and selected a daughter of Propere Rik to try in their breeding loft. Unfortunately she never laid and was replaced with another daughter of Propere Rik this time paired to Stella (Drum x Gerrie). This is the dam of their winner.
As a matter of interest the nest mate a cock went to Garry Inkley and he bred Garry’s 1st Lambert Club winner from Exeter this season against 664 entries.
We only ever bred two from that mating. Probably worth trying them again!
