Had a call from Ken Wise yesterday reporting his top pefrmances in recent National races.
In Yesterdays NFC Countances Old Bird National against 629 entries he was provisionally 1st and 2nd Section E, 12th and 13th Open.
First bird was a previous club winner this season and is bred from a son of POPERE 10 x JEAN GENIE paired with a daughter of KLEINE GERARD x SISTER FRIENDSHIP the super pair of Florian Hendrix the young Dutch Champion.
The nest sister to the sire of yesterdays 1st Section E bred from PROPERE 10 x JEAN GENIE also bred last weeks 1st Section CS against 1204 birds and 7th Open against 2,309 birds in the BICC Guernsey Young Bird National 1.
So two nest mates bred two 1st Section winners in two National Races just one week apart.
Kens second bird was bred by his good friend Brian Murray from a son of our old base cock GLYNDWR (Son Young Couple) with HEIDI a really good breeding daughter of KONING and KONINGEN of Andreas Drapa that we owned over ten years ago. The blood just keeps on winning at all levels. Dam of the second bird was one of Brians established De Klak line hens that have done very well for him.
Ken was also provisonal 36th Open NFC Young Bird National on Saturday against 1872 entries with one bred from a son of our HERO AKA SON FRIENDSHIP (Son Propere 42 a brother of Propere Rik x Friendship from Rik Hermans) x CALENDAR GIRL (Caliph x Martina daughter of Drum x Gerrie). Dam of the winner was bred by John Crehans from Flash Harry a son of Harry and Mystique (Drum x Doran). This bird also won the club for Ken two weeks ago.
Many congratulations and best of luck for the rest of the season.
