1° prize on tough Ecouen race

The Ecouen (283km) promised to be an easy preparation race for the upcoming national Argenton (555km) race. It turned out to be a tough race for the pigeons. The pigeon flock was scattered right from the start. A loft of birds needed to fly home all alone. We started with the 1° prize in the yearlings result and the 2° prize in the old birds result!

Our pigeons won the following results:

16/06/2018 Ecouen (283km)
ZAV Federation 851 yearlings: 1-10-15-21-22-45-49-…  34/66
ZAV Federation 1,281 old birds: 2-5-19-28-30-44-46-55-67-…  44/86 (old birds + yearlings)

Our checkered yearling cock B17-6025160 won in these circumstances 1° Ecouen (283km) 851 birds. He is one of our favorite yearlings but we have to say that his start of the season was not spectacular. We gave him one week extra rest and it is easy to spot that his condition has improved significantly. He won the 1° prize this weekend and we think he will confirm his talent the coming races. His next stop is the national Argenton race. The father of B17-6025160 is our top bird “Samsung”(B15-6026082), a son to “Elektro”(B08-6174630). “Samsung”(B15-6026082) was only raced as a youngster and a yearling but has got an impressive list of records. He won for instance 1° fast. Souppes (357km) 9,294 birds and 20° National Argenton (555km)! The mother of B17-6025160 is a direct Engels Bros bird. She won herself 1° Provincial Argenton 1,326 pigeons / 3° National Argenton 13,629 pigeons. She is a daughter to “Den As”(B06-6154676), 5th National Ace-pigeon KBDB Long Distance.

The checkered yearling B17-6025160 won 1° Ecouen 851 birds

We have some top racing hens on the loft and the checkered hen “Andrea”(B16-6032051) is for sure one of them. She flew this weekend the Ecouen (283km) race as a preparation for the national Argenton (555km) race of next weekend. It was not an easy race for the birds but “Andrea”(B16-6032051) managed to win a top position. She won 2° Ecouen (283km) 1,281 pigeons. The father of “Andrea”(B16-6032051) is a son to “Elektro”(B08-6174630) and a full brother to “Elektro Junior”(B16-6032016) and “Samsung”(B15-6026082). The mother of “Andrea”(B16-6032051) is “Siri”(B06-6411619), probably the best breeding child ever of basic pigeon “Barco”(B01-6387350). “Siri”(B06-6411619) is for instance grandmother to “Olympic Eva”(B14-6175226), Olympic Ace-pigeon Long Distance. “Andrea”(B16-6032051) is a perfectly built bird, the kind of pigeon we all try to breed.
