Second race of the season – second victory!

The birds had to stay in the basket for two nights for the Noyon (208km) race. The weather on Sunday was not good enough to release the birds. They were finally released Monday afternoon. The weather circumstances were perfect: sunny weather and a light head wind. It was a nice view to see them arrive!

Our racing hens brought their second victory back home in two weeks. Now they won even two 1° prizes as our two first arrivals were clocked in exactly the same time.

29/04/2019 Noyon (208km)
Pallieterverbond 274 old birds: 3-4-5-7-8-13-14-15-18-21-22-23-…  29/37 (old birds and yearlings)
Pallieterverbond 166 yearlings: 1-1-4-11-12-19-20-21-22-…  16/22

The total number of competing birds was not high this time because a lot of fanciers decided not to enter their birds due to the predicted bad weather. Our arrival times would have been early as well in other federations and this is important as a reference! 

The first prize was won by the blue hen B18-6020086. She is a daughter to “La Perla”(B12-6196185), 1° National Gueret (590km) 2,656 pigeons. She is in a good form. Probably she will be our first nominated bird next weekend.

B18-6020086 won the 1° prize on the Noyon race

In exactly the same time as B18-6020086 arrived the checkered hen B18-6020083. Of course she wins the first prize too. She is a daughter to our top breeder “Origi(B13-6020050). Her mother is “Elektro Princess”(B17-6025201), a daughter to “Elektro”(B08-6174630) and the nest-sister to “Armani Elektro”(B17-6025202). The hen B18-6020083 is a full sister to “Black Beauty”(B18-6020111), 68° National Argenton (555km) 16,496 pigeons.

B18-6020083 arrived in exactly the same time as her loftmate and won the 1° prize too

Our third arrival was our first nominated B17-6025006. She is a very good racing hen. We expect many more top prizes from her this racing season. It will lead to no surprise that she is another top performing grandchild of “Elektro”(B08-6174630). Her father is "Casino"(B11-6282003).
