Dam of Lot 23 is ALICIA a very special hen indeed. She was bred by Gerard and Bas Verkerk probably the best all round fanciers of the Netherlands this last 30 years! ALICIA is now 10 years old and has bred Federation and National Section winners from the very first nest and has continued to do so. Her bloodline is quite fantastic and could only be bred by the Verkerks.

Her sire is ‘BULLDOZER’ a fantastic racer winning 6th Best Doffer of the Netherlands WHZB ’04 but also became a MIGHTY breeder with his descendants from various partners winning 1st NPO Bourges 9742 b, 1st NPO Vierzon 11,506 b,1st NPO La Souterainne 8625 b, 1st NPO Ruffec 3780 b.These are National NPO Races all over 400 miles.

‘BULLDOZER’ was bred from ‘BIG THUNDER’ an inbred son of the VERBART DUIVIN of Jan Ouwerkerk.

Mother of ‘BULLDOZER’ is the legendary hen ‘BUBBLES’ bred by Ad Schaerlaeckens from all of his incredible winning bloodlines contained in just one pedigree. She was obtained at just 3 days old. Students of the Dutch Pigeon Sport will immediately recognise the influence this hen has had on the Verkerk team breeding Olympiade Champions, National Ace Winners, National NPO Winners and some truly sensational breeders over the years. Ever year she was paired to a different mate and bred to the same level with all of them!Considered one of the very best breeding hens in the Dutch Pigeon Sport history.

Other fanciers have also experienced tremendous success with her bloodline. For example the Rik Hermans world class hen ‘ATHENA’ has a daughter of BUBBLES as a mother and she in turn bred NIKE winner of 1st National Bourges against 28,028 birds and the nest sister to NIKE bred ‘JAMES LEGEND’ the sensation of China selling for 2.8 million Euro!
