This beautiful checker Pied Hen GB10L40803 was bred from ‘Drum’ when he was coupled with our good breeding hen ‘Seven 11′ (Zidane x Agent Starling’). She is the grandmother of Price Brothers and Son’s fantastic racing hen GB12S66202 the winner of 1st Fed Frome 3,700 birds, 1st Fed Frome 4,516 birds & 20th Fed Frome 3,562 birds in the last three weeks. She also won 2nd Open M.C.C. Carentan last year!! GB10L40803 ‘Daughter Drum’ was purchased by Wayne Doonan of Cock Crow Lofts in Northern Ireland at our Blackpool auction and bred for them 3rd Open NIPA Rosscarbery Young Bird National in her first nest against 4,643 birds.
The top class fanciers from Stourport ~ Price Brothers and Son continue their great start to the season. In the Worcestershire & District Feds third race from Frome last Saturday they had 5 birds drop together to win 1st,2nd,3rd,4th & 6th Fed against 4516 birds.
The week before also from Frome against 3562 birds they were 2nd,3rd,18th,19th,20th,24th,25th,27th. Top class flying by any standards.
Their first bird last weekend for 1st Fed was the same 2 year old Ch.Pied Hen that had won 1st Fed Frome against 3700 birds two weeks ago and 20th Fed Frome last week against 3562 birds. She also won 2nd Open M.C.C. Carentan last year. She is bred from a son of our ‘Granger’ (Direct son of ‘Rocket’) when paired to a daughter of ‘Drum’ x ‘Seven 11′. This week her nest mate GB12S66201 was also clocked to win 3rd Fed. The mother of these sisters is a hen from Steve’s friend Ray Forbes famous for his Soontjens lines..
Once again super bloodlines raced by super fanciers….many congratulations indeed.
