This hen is ‘Aspen’ bred by Leo Heremans from ‘De Power’ (Son Olympiade) and ‘Zuster Nathalia’ (Daughter Favoriet Couple). This same pair also bred ‘Ambassedeur’ and ‘Nest Broer Ambassedeur’, Co Winners of 1st National Speed Championship K.B.D.B. in 2010 for Leo Heremans before being purchased by the Eijerkamp family.
‘Aspen’ is still only four years old but she is proving to be a talent in our breeding loft, not only being the mother of ‘Foxy Jen’, but many good reports of her grandchildren winning well when she was couple to different cocks.
