The train is coming

This weekend we raced our birds on the middle distance race Melun (310km). We entered our racing hens (51 birds) in the ‘Regio Mechelen’ federation and our racing cocks (54 birds) in the ‘ZAV’ federation. The wind was blowing from the southeast. It was a smooth and rather fast race. Our birds did a good job again, they showed their condition is improving by the week. We expect them to be on their best when the national racing season starts in two weeks!

These were the first arrivals from our racing hens team.

The hen B16-6032134 was in the head of the race this weekend on the middle distance race Melun (310km). She won 13° Melun (310km) 4,902 birds. We expected her to peak on the +600km national races but she showed her qualities already on the middle distance. Her father is our current top long distance racer “Black Dragon”(B15-6026259). He won last year 1° S.-national Aurillac (712km) together with many other top prizes. Her mother is a half-sister to our famous breeder “Elektro”(B08-6174630). B16-6032134 is a very beautiful bird. We are curious to see how she will perform the coming weeks and months.
