Red Pied Cock GB05N07222

In 2010 came 10th to the loft from Vire, 5th Messac and 3rd Messac in preparation for Barcelona.  He was 1st to the loft from Barcelona with a velocity of 204.9mpm (224.08 ypm) which would have made him about 31st B.B.C.


Blue Cock GB05N07237         

Flew Pau 2008 1st to loft but late.
Flew Perpignan in 2009 Vel 226.36 mpm would have been 69th National.

This cock’s Widowhood hen is GB08V45913 a Blue Cheq hen bred from a Hans Knetsch cock paired to a Jac Steketee hen.

In 2010 came 14th to the loft from Vire, 16th Messac and 4th Messac in preparation for Barcelona.  He was 2nd to the loft from Barcelona with a velocity of 117.98mpm (129.02 ypm) about 51st B.B.C.


Dark Pied Cock GB07V44141       

This cock flew well in the Tarbes International 2009 arriving at 09-11-14 on day two, only three birds on the day, and while he was not timed he achieved a velocity of 733mpm which would have placed him 10th National. He is bred from a cock from Pat Newell’s 1st National Perpignan hen when paired to a Jac Steketee hen.

His widowhood hen is GB07V44149 a Blue Cheq. Bred from a Hans Knetsch cock paired to an Ad Pegels hen. She also flew Tarbes International 2009 arriving at 12-18-34 on day two with a velocity of 639mpm which, had she been timed, would have placed her 30th National.

In 2010 came 4th to the loft from Vire, 4th Messac and 8th Poitiers in preparation for Tarbes.  He was 4th to the loft from Tarbes with a velocity of 416.47mpm (455.45 ypm) about 409th N.F.C.

Mealy Cock GB 08 R 45917         

This cock was unraced as a yearling and used as the mate for a natural hen. As a two year old he came late from Vire, missed Messac but was then 10th to the loft from Poitiers and 5th loft from Tarbes with a velocity of 282.28 mpm (308.70 ypm) which would have put him about 467th N.F.C.

He is bred from a cock given to me by Carlier-Petit without a pedigree but probably of Gaudfrin lines and paired to a Jan Theelen cross that went in to Robert Ben and the owner here did not want to reclaim.

He has always been an erractic and wilful pigeons often going away for a couple of days or so at a time but his performance from Tarbes, when so many did not get home at all, indicates he might have something after all.
The Team for 2011

only its Palamos.
Cheqeur Pied Cock GB 08 R 45928

He is bred from a Jac Steketee cock and a hen given to me by Jan Dirk Van Egmond, a latebred from his racing loft of unknown parentage but most probably Van Knetsch lines.

Blue Cheqeur Cock GB 08 R 45951         


This cock performed moderately well in his two yearling races and then as a two year old came 13th to the loft from Vire, 17th from Messac, 6th Poitiers and then 6th from Tarbes with a velocity of 101.39mpm (110.88 ypm).

Blue Cheqeur Cock GB 08 R 45987      

This cock was not raced as a yearling but used as a partner for a natural hen and when raced as a two year old was consistently late. He will get another chance in the training races to see if he can progress. A curious mixture of De Smet Matthijs, Janssen, Van Loon and Wescott.
