A nice message received from Adam Gaunt of the N and A Gaunt partnership to report their young blue hen winning 1st Leeds and District Amal from Rugby when 48 members sent 664 birds on 14th August 2021.
The sire of their winner was purchased by the Gaunt’s from our late bred sale list last year so he has wasted no time whatsoever making his presence felt. Even as a late bred he was something special being a small bodied cock with nice supple muscles and was very lively around the aviary just like his sire BASIL ‘The Racing Machine’. His dam was our very good breeding hen MATA HARI a daughter of our old basic breeder OUTLAW when he was coupled to ZELDA the last daughter of the YOUNG COUPLE.
Dam of their winner was bred from a cock we bred and sold to David Drinkhall bred from LEOS BEST a son of MARIO (Son Di Caprio) x ASTRID (Dtr Favorite Couple Leo Heremans) when he was paired to ATHENA a direct daughter of NIEUWE ROSSI x EENOOGSKE (New Dream Couple Leo Heremans). This cock was coupled to a hen bred by Morris and Pugh from their exceptional ‘Licensed to Thrill’ bloodline.
Very well done indeed and I am certain your late bred son of Basil will continue to fulfill his early potential.
