1° Fay aux Loges (402km) 601 pigeons / 6° Provincial Fay aux Loges (402km) 1,709 birds

It was a calm racing weekend for us and the birds. The short distance races were cancelled. The provincial race Fay-aux-Loges (402km) was normally scheduled on Saturday. Because of the predicted bad weather, we decided to keep our birds at home. However, at the very last moment the board of the KBDB Antwerp decided to released the birds on Friday. The weather on Friday was much better but also tougher for the pigeons: strong headwinds and a temperature that rose till 27°C.

Because we decided earlier that week not to race our pigeons in the weekend, we gave them only light food (Gerry Plus from Versele Laga). The last minute change to Friday changed our mind and we wanted to send a few birds after all. During just one meal they got more energy rich food (50% Master Widowhood + 50% Master Black – also from Versele Laga).  We were curious how our birds would perform on such a tough race with this kind of last minute preparation.

We selected five yearling hens to participate race. And this team did what our pigeons have been doing all season long : win! The beautiful checkered hen BE20-6166100 won 1° Fay aux Loges (402km) 601 pigeons / 6° Provincial Fay aux Loges (402km) 1,709 birds! Her average velocity was 1,144 m/min and she had to fly almost 6 hours.

It give us great joy to see that “Iron Man”(BE17-6025089) passes his super genes to his descendants. Followers of our birds know quite well that in this kind of weather – hot weathers and strong headwinds – “Iron Man”(BE17-6025089) was almost unbeatable.  What a great racer he was! Now seeing his daughter BE20-6166100 win the race in the same difficult circumstances, makes us very proud. “Iron Man”(BE17-6025089) is still a young breeder but his off springs have flown already very well! His bloodline is very suitable to cross with our proven “Mustang”(BE14-6175237) and “Elektro”(BE08-6174630) bloodlines.
