I had a very welcome message from Steve Guildea , Son and Williamson of the Pirrie Club in Liverpool reporting the double top of their top yearling hen having won on Saturday from Weymouth also scoring 4th North Liverpool Fed 1441 birds and also won the week before from Bath. She had also scored well as a young bird.
The sire of this hen is GB11L36174 a truly magnificent breeding cock having been purchased by Steve’s friend John Gosling in our Dublin Auction as a youngster and and bred many winners including a 1st Liverpool Amal over 3000 birds before being transferred to Steve where he has continued to breed winners every year.
His sire is the magnificent ‘Glyndwr’ just one of the Champion racing and breeding children of ‘The Young Couple’ ..without any doubt whatsoever the very best breeding pair we have ever owned.

The results of this pair continue to score again and again with Steve’s good hen as up to date a winner as you can get. Not forgetting the last week when Young Couple Blood scored for our own racing team with ‘Special Boy’ our last years Provincial Ace Young Bird and 6th Dutch National Ace Young Bird scoring 55th Provincial Cheteaudun against 6409 birds.He is a son grandson of Junior a son of The Young Couple.
Another star in the making is Garry Inkley’s Yearling cock that has won two x 1st, 1 x 2nd and 1 x 3rd in four races against average 450 birds per race . He is from a double Fed winning daughter of Junior a son of The Young Couple.
D.Stokes and Son continue their winning ways in the Shropshire Fed and Heart of England Fed having scored 2nd and 3rd Fed Shropshire Fed once again from Purbeck against 1453 birds having already won 1st and 2nd Fed Purbeck 1539 birds , 1st and 2nd Shropshire Fed Yeovil 2328 birds, 1st and 2nd Heart of England Fed Purbeck 1993 birds, all with the Young Couple Bloodline through Junior and his nest sister Zelda crossed with their original old top performance lines.
Stuart Wilcox is Provisional 4th BICC Truro 5419 birds through The Young Couple.
And not forgetting the sensational performance the week before of Stef Bals the young Dutch Star winning 1st and 2nd Provincial Pt St Max against over 10,000 birds down from the Young Couple bloodlines via the same ‘Glyndwr’ Cock as Steve Guildea , Son and Williamson’s winner.
Fashions come and go but good performance birds are created very carefully over a long time through selection in the races. ‘The Young Couple’ have indeed stood the test of time and we have some very exciting new lines via Thomas 6 ( through Mike Ganus) and original Schaerlaeckens Sissi that will continue to move the results in the upward direction…
