I had a the welcome news this morning from Mr Ernie Rigby of Telford that he had bred the winner of 1st MNFC Vire 2017 for Mr and Mrs Shaw of Wolverhampton against 4,027 birds sent by 434 members.

The winner is a two year old blue hen with plenty of previous results. Her pedigree is really bred in the ‘Purple’….

Her sire was bred by Mrs Whitehead of Co.Durham from a pair of Syndicate Lofts birds…’Wazir’ a son of ‘Drum’ and ‘Gerrie’ paired to ‘Dolly Blue’ a daughter of ‘Johannesburg’ (Drum x Doran) paired with ‘Star 300’ (Galileo x Syndicate Emerald 6th in the Final Million Dollar race daughter of Attila).

Her dam was bred by our selves at Syndicate Lofts from ‘Teofilo’ whose father was a full brother to ‘Drum’ when paired to ‘Lady Marijke’ a full sister to ‘Tips’ the sire of ‘Drum’.

Many congratulations to all involved.
