Today we had 2 races Pontoise 344 km and Oudenaarde 127 km.
On Oudenaarde we send the old hens and the youngster who came back later and non-darkness youngsters in total 95 pigeons.
The weather was nog young in the early morning but they could liberate at 09:30 am.
With a tail wind we expect a speed above 100 km/h and that was correct. The most came back from the north so in big combine we couldn’t win a top prize. But we made nice series with 62 prizes from the 95 we send.
Last week from Sens we had big losses so we hope they would be better on Pontoise this week. They were in a good condition so we send 85. It was nog a easy race and the first 20 minutes they came bad on our loft but that was the same on the other loft so we made a good serie with 43 prizes.
Many fanciers have still a lot of youngsters missing and with the national from Gien next week that is not good, the numbers of pigeons would be low.
From both races we clock a pigeon 1st from the parents to “Esmee”. Both parents are from 2007 and breed still well so we hope to breed with success with them in 2017 bacause they gave a lot of youngsters who breed well for us.
