Breeding Update

Breeding has been busy this year to date. Tenny Tipper has had two batches of youngsters from us with 6 going in the first batch which were purchased via the Rhondda Valley Fed Breeder Buyer. A further 6 went in the second batch. We currently have 10 in the nest and all of these will also go to Tenny to test out as young birds. That will be 22 youngsters and hopefully they can perform very well for him in the R.V Federation.

Good news from Ireland where Eamon Wright was racing a Grandson of 'Rasbull Semtex'. It was his first bird home and he finished 2nd Club in the Irish National from 304 miles. This cock previously raced in the Pigeon Pixels One Loft Race in 2015 and finished 3rd Open - 4th Hotspot Pigeon Pixels One Loft Race 2015 - 124 miles. The 'Semtex' lines are performing very well with limited raced to date. This bird was bred out of 'Rasbull 01' (currently in our stock loft) who raced for Eamon Wright in 2014 and scored 5th Hotspot, 103 miles Pigeon Pixels One Loft Race 2014, 14th Open Final Pigeon Pixels One Loft Race 2014, 176 miles, 6th Club, 195th Irish National 2014, 3,782 birds, 230 miles.
