Had a message from Mick Carrick of Chesham reporting the latest performance of his good cock GB20N19510.

Last Saturday he wins (Provisional) 2nd Section ,7th Open NFC St.Pilbert Du Peuple against 4069 birds.. he also wins 1st Section ,13th Open BICC and 2nd Section, 4th Open BBC.

The same cock won 14th Open BBC Guernsey 1 Old Birds against 2156 birds two weeks ago.

An ace cock prepared expertly by ace fanciers!

The winning cock is bred from Mick’s Old Bordeaux cock a big winner and really top breeder paired to a hen from Eileen and the late Jimmy Whitehead of Durham. She is bred from a son of War Drum x Jean Genie (Skyfall x Genie) paired to a daughter of Mario (Son Di Caprio) x Sunday Girl.

War Drum our top breeding cock and direct sire of 14 x 1st Federation winners. His winning grandchildren are countless. This season his offspring have appeared in many big winners at all levels into the fourth and fifth generation. As everyone knows, not every pigeon we breed even from our very best are worthwhile, however the strike rate of the War Drum offspring just get better and better down through the generations. A real sign of pre potency.
