4 great results in a row
The national quartet of Bourges, Chateauroux, Argenton and another race from Chateauroux was once again one of the main goals of the season for Roziers-Xiang. These are the races where the young birds had to excel this year. The pigeons were meticulously prepared for these races, in an attempt to get these highly talented birds in their best form possible. And they did excel on those races. The result from Bourges was good but not spectacular, but the team was nothing short of impressive in the other three races. Here is an overview:
Bourges 11/08/2018 - 23854 young birds: 125-128-141-159-261-389-562-647-715-765-781-934-1474-1543-1549-....

Queen L. continues to take the lead
Judging from the pedigrees of all of these prize winners, we can say that the bloodline of the renowned Queen L, winner of a 1st Nat. La Souterraine of over 16,000 pigeons as a young bird, is still playing an important role in this team. She has bred four generations of highly talented descendants, making her a truly fantastic breeding hen! Feel free to take a closer look at the pedigrees of BE18-6034133, BE18-6034054, BE18-6034014, BE18-6034200, BE18-6034151.
