A nice reference which we almost forgot to mention comes from our friend Frans Strikker from Hengelo. About two months ago their pigeons were liberated in Chalons en Champagne (405 kms). Due to bad weather the liberation was on Friday. Frans won the 1st prize against 5,952 pigeons with his 'Blue Friday' which won 1st Dizy le Gros 2,983 pigeons before (also on Friday, therefore her name).
Frans races with 85% Ebbenpigeons and on this race he entered 10 pigeons, he won 8 prize cards: 1-63-64 etc. He won 7 prizes in the first 10%!
'Blue Friday' is bred from a full brother of our 18-1682481 'Naomi' mated to a daughter of the topcouple NL12-1355632 'Hannibal' x NL15-1475429 'Katja'.
