On 16 December 2015 Mr. Chu (Taiwan) sent us the following e-mail:
I have just finished North Sea racing today and would like to tell you that your strain wins number 17 of 10,500 pigeons. It's a very tough racing, all of pigeons must be continue racing for twice a week and total 6 times. The final time (today, 6th racing) only 10.6% = 160 pigeons come home within the limited time. It is granddaughter of “Diva”(B05-6234001), the mother of “Super Lady”(B11-6282019). Thank you again and I wish you have successful racing results next year.
Wish you a MERRY X'MAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR.
Sincerely Yours, Chu
It's not the first time that this strain has been successful on the hard races. When the circumstances are hard, the "Super Lady"(B11-6282019) family often flies on top. “Super Lady” herself was a very tough racing hen. Especially her performance on the national Montelimar race was unqiue. A lot of people congratulated us after that race. They said it was an amazing achievement. This pigeon won an absolute top prize, certainly if you consider the following facts. This bird had to fly by far the longest distance of all the early national birds. Our loft was also the only one located in the middle of Belgium. The other early birds had to fly towards the eastern part of Belgium.
