Due to a lack of time we don't post weekly at the moment. Also the messages are shorter but that's because Falco is moving to a new house.
The results are great though. From Péronne on August 24 we were both in the best 10 results of our section. On the loft on Will & Falco Ebben we entered 10 pigeons and 7 won their prize card 1:4, 4 x 1:10 and 2 x 1:100. Against 1,556 pigeons it was: 1, 9, 77, 84 and so on.
The first bird was our NL18-1682481, a granddaughter to Indy (daughter NL15-1475928 'Kurt' x NL16-1311226 'Laonneke').
On the loft of Combinatie Ebben we won against 1,556 pigeons: 3, 8, 28, 32, 49, 51, 60, 67, 68, 70, 78 and so on. We entered 30 pigeons and won 23 prize cards of which 13 x 1:10. The first bird comes from Ad Schaerlaeckens as an egg.
On September 1st we had a NPO race from Nanteuil. It was one of the best results in our career for W. & F. Ebben. With only 10 birds in the race we won against 5,215 pigeons: 5, 6, 11, 13, 109, 190, 202, 460 and 922. So that's 40% prize cards 1:100, 80% prize cards 1:10 and 90% prize cards 1:4!!!!! The first bird was NL18-1682481 again, a granddaughter to Indy (daughter NL15-1475928 'Kurt' x NL16-1311226 'Laonneke'). This was by far the best provincial result with 726 points average in the result sheet.
On the loft of Combinatie Ebben we started with 4, 9, 18, 58 NPO vs 5,215 pigeons and won 12 prize cards 1:10 and 17 prize cards 1:4. It was not as good as W. & F. Ebben, but it was still the 10th best provincial result. The first bird that arrived was a daughter of NL12-1355632 'Hannibal' x NL15-1875429 'Katja'. Also nice: the 2nd bird NPO vs 5,215 of the Hoogeveen brothers was bred by us!
