Tim Atkin from Rugby is having an outstanding season in Section I of the NFC in 2022, having won 2 x 1st and 2nd & 7th Section in three National Races this season.
Tim is a super competitive fancier and a fearless buyer when only the very best available will do. Proving top winning genes paired to more top winning genes inevitably breeds more winners.
On 21st May from Guernsey 1 Tim was 1st Section and 95th Open against 6599 birds with one from a really super breeding pair he owns being a son of Propere 10 x Stardust paired to a hen bred by Rik Hermans from Propere 09 ( full brother of Propere Rik) x Minerva Rik’s top racing and breeding hen.
On 6th June Tim was 2nd and 7th Section , 167th & 246th Open Guernsey 2 against 5419 birds with his first bird being bred from a son of Rik Hermans world famous ‘Friendship’ when coupled to a daughter of ‘War Drum’ x ‘Foxy Lady’ and his second bird being bred from the good Propere 10 cock x Minerva hen.
On 2nd July from St Philbert Du Peuple Tim clocked yet another one from his Propere 10 cock and Minerva Hen to win 1st Section , 70th Open against 4069 birds with another three birds clocked in the Section top 10.
This pair also bred 1st Section I in the 2020 Fourgeres NFC Race against 580 birds , 95th Open against 9,976 birds, so they have now bred 3 x 1st Section, 1 x 2nd Section NFC and 10 x 1st Federation Winners. Quite outstanding by any standards. Many congratulations indeed.
