the 99 is for sure direct. you are right, the 05s are g. childrenNot likely from this pigeon then. This is a 1990 bird. Would be too old to produce a '99 and '05 offsprings. Maybe grandchildren.
Ped doesn't have much info other than band number and year, and breeder names. I can't read it though.
Wow! Direct Fabrys?A 99 and two 05s
WOW!!! Thanks so much! Very cool. I have some more documentation I will post to see what you think. awesome!Wow! Direct Fabrys?
It means you have one it had when 9 yrs old and two when it was 15 yrs old? When was Fabry around?
I tried to decipher this pedigree in Belgian French and here is what I was able to make out:
The head (sire) side of the ped: Father: "Blue 1000804/87" from
1/ "Young Fury" x "Chequer 465". Young Fury (Jeune Furie) is from "Furie" x illegible, looks like "Bourgesker" to me (winner? from Bourges).
2/ "Chequer 465" is from Illegible (Petras or Tetras?) x probably "Sproete". T/Petras is from "Orleans" x "Margaret". Sproete is from "Yzeren" x something that looks like "Toke" or "Tohe".
The tail (dam) side of the pedigree: Mother: "Blue Cheq 1025251/88" from
3/ "Standard" x "Blue 103". Standard is from "Fangio" (he was a race car driver and the bird was probably a big winner) x "Mother of the St Vincent" (St Vincent was probably a Cock).
4/ Blue hen 103 is from "Giscard" x "Lisette".
Of course I could be wrong where illegible, then it's anybody's guess. Maybe a Fabry specialist can help you.
Hope this helps,
Why do you doubt? I've managed to buy Youngsters from Cocks that were 18 yrs old and I personnally got babies from 2 hens 11 and 12 yrs old, eggs floated under foster parents. Of course all these YBs were just lightly trained (about 120km) and kept in the breeding loft paired with proven racers. The old birds used to fly out for exercise daily til they were retired in an aviary. Not to worry, blood will talk!the 99 is for sure direct. you are right, the 05s are g. children
