BOTH ELECTRA AND FIREBALL
WERE BRED BY US FOR STOCK
THE 91 COCK
The 91 cock was bred by Betty de Bruyn of Reusel from her direct Janssen Brothers stock and purchased by us in 1992, he is sire g/sire and g/g/sire to many of our stock birds. The 91 Cock was a great grandson off Jonge Raket 76, Goldie, 6116665 daughter of Jonge Merkx, 6307727 daughter of 019, 6377570 son of Vos and 6337712 daughter of Malie Geeolger. These winning Janssen Brothers genes run throughout our Janssen Family.
THE 016 HEN
The 016 Hen was bred by B de Bruyn of Reusel from direct Janssen Brothers stock. This hen was a Golden Hen in our stock loft and many of her children and grand children are breeding winners for us at all levels of competition at sprint and middle distances. Her pedigree is phenomenal with all the best of Janssen Brothers pigeons throughout it. Her sire 6678797 was a direct son off B 81 6116649 Malie Geeloger (son of Geeloger 74 and Goede Licht 74) and 6377509 v.goede blauw. Her dam 6678793 was a direct daughter off B88 6236282 V.Zoon van Afgekeurde (Afgekeurde 82 & Duiven Jonge Merkcx 81) and B87 6722447 Donken van 019 (6736019 The 019 & Goede Geschelpte 83). This hen called The 016 very rarely produced a prize winner for us however her children and their offspring are top class producers. When reading the Janssen Brothers book they complain that her G/Grand Sire 019 hardly produced a winner but his children were some of their principle breeders. We purchased this hen along with Chantilly 03 in a private treaty sale in the mid 1990ís from an extremely well known UK Fancier, four years later he contacted us to buy this hen back after her grandchildren began to win out of turn for him. When we declined his very generous offer she said he had made the worst mistake of his racing pigeon career selling her as whilst her children couldnít fly across the road her Grandchildren were racing machines as yearlings and older.
Daughter of Janssen Hen Fireball (see above), this hen won many prizes on the road mainly across the channel. She is the Dam of many prize winners inc. Chantilly Star winner of 1st club & 2nd Fed and 1st club, 1st Section West & 13th Open North West Classic Swainswick.
Miss Reliable is half Jim Biss and half Janssen, she was bred by us in 2001 from a son of Jim Bissís Occult when Occult was paired to a daughter of Vend and grandaughter of Salve and Sister Witkop. Her Dam The Centenary hen won many prizes for Vic Harrison over the Channel and was reported in Worcester 106 miles from home on the evening of the Centenary Nantes Race that was a smash. She was a grandaughter off The 91 Cock when paired to a daughter of Firske and Rema and her dam was our old Van Den Bosche hen bred from the very best of A Babbington and R Piggin lines inc. Blue Albert. As a yearling Miss Reliable was Bird of the Year in the NWCC winning, 10th Section West 110th Open Falaise 350 miles, 1st Section West 7th Open Fougeres 377 miles and 2nd Section West 6th Open Nantes 450 miles. She was raced until 2005 and won us in excess of £3000 on Channel races winning from 350 miles to 470 miles. As we only breed off our stock birds for our young bird team Miss Reliable bred her first youngsters this year when paired to Remus our ace Janssen stock cock and this pairing has produced four young bird prize winners in 2006. Remus Girl won 1st Section C & 15th Open NWCC Young bird Futurity race she was bred and raced by us winning £350, Remus 86 won 1st Club & 15th Fed Cheltenham and two other youngsters won minor prize cards 6th Club & 18th Fed and 5th Club, 10th Fed and 22nd Combine.
Daughter of top Janssen stock cock Skymaster and Grand Daughter of The Fed Winner. This hen was raced as a young bird when she won 5 prizes. At the end of the Season she was retained for stock on the advice of Gary Spavin, who has been trying to get her off us ever since as she is in his words 'A dream of a hen'.
Daughter from Remus & Miss Reliable
This hen will play a large part in our future she is an absolute dream of a hen and we are convinced she will be a golden hen, and they don't come along that often.
In her 1st year of breeding in 2007 we took 4 youngsters off her 3 cocks & 1 hen. She produced Remus Skymaster a 1st NWCC section winner over the channel, a 1st inland fed winner and 2 others to score in top 6 section positions in NWCC over the channel.
Can't ask for anything more.
