In 2012 we sent a few youngsters to Geoffrey Douglas in Lurgan to race in a Gold Ring Young Bird race. Unfortunately due to Geoffrey’s health issues his young bird season had to take a back seat.
Last season one of the youngsters GB12R22571 ‘Foxy Jen’ was prepared for the N.I.P.A. Rosscarberry Old Bird National 2013 and she obliged with 1st Club,2nd Section and 2nd Open against 6,212 birds.
Last Saturday saw the same N.I.P.A. Rosscarberry National 2014 take place in a very unfavourable wind for Lurgan , however ‘Foxy Jen’ once again raced early to win 1st Club , 2nd Section E 133 members sent 1370 birds ,18th Open 632 members sent 5669 birds.
I am certain we will see more good results from this hen in the future. Many congratulations once again to Geoffrey…
