He is now 18 years old. The last season he did not fill his eggs.
His health is still excellent.
Our team had a very good season of racing.
Our pigeons achieved:
21 club wins (16 members)
15 Division wins (38 members)
3 Union wins (137 members)
Club champion (middle, long, overall, youngbirds, old birds, combined)
Division champion (short, middle, long, overall, youngbirds, old birds, combined)
Our team was blessed by winning the union’s longest race for 2019.
He is a double club winner and missed a union win from Richmond by 40 seconds. Superb racer.
His sire is a grandson of the Tom Lock R80k cock and his mother is an Einkamerer Houben / Sierens. They are a proven pair. We sold the sire to Hennie, our flying partner, last year on our stock clearance sale. Just shows that old pigeons can still breed good babies 😉
I handled the “old toppie” the past weekend. He is still handling well for his age (17 years)
Hopefully we will be able to breed a few out of him this year again. He was still fertile last season at the age of 16 years.
Our team was blessed with another union win for the 2019 season. This time it was on the old bird race from Noupoort (630km – 1700+ pigeons – 1100mpm).
She was bred by our partner, Hennie, and is a double club and division winner this year.
Well done girl!
