Our birds once again performed well in the 4th Hotspot in the Pigeon Pixels One Loft Race from 124 miles. '02' finished 7th Open and '01' 13th Open. In the 5th Hotspot from 156 miles they improved again with '06' being 4th Open and '02' finishing 7th Open. The birds we sent to Ireland have performed very well up to now. They were all bred from our top stock pair and after 5 Hotspots have been:- 4th, 4th, 5th, 5th, 7th, and 7th. I am very pleased with these performances considering these birds are bred for the longer distances. The final is on Saturday 23rd August and I strongly fancy their chances from 176 miles but my bigger hopes lay in the Irish Nationals after the One Loft series has finished. '02' is sitting joint 3rd in the Ace Bird standing and '06' is sitting in joint 6th. When you consider 60 birds were entered I am very pleased with how these birds have come given the first time pairing of their parents. Hopefully all 3 birds will produce something special come the final race.
Another fancier doing well with my pigeons is Tenny Tipper in Aberdare. Tenny had birds off me at the start of the season and he still has 4 in his race team. Last week Tenny clocked '14' to be his first bird and finish 6th Club. I will post up the results Tenny achieves with these birds as the season progresses.
