The "Van Hove" stock I have are from other fanciers who breed from his stock. I plan on getting in contact with Bill in the near future to see if I can purchase a few hens to Bull out to my Grandson of 1739...

Do you fly in the same club as Bill?

I flew in the same club as bill until this year and he was kicked out of our club. Not by a vote from me I must say. He is a very good flyer and has good birds (I was happy to beat him a couple times last year):D. He flies in a neighboring club and for the most part all is well.

Funny you should say your grandchild off the 1739 cause my hen is a grandchild of the 1739. She is a awelsome breeder and produced alot of winners in my friends loft. He got cancer and I bought her at the auction he sold all his birds at. I have a auction bird off this hen this year that is just beautiful. I was just thinking today about putting my hen with anouther cock I got to breed some stock off them.

I know mike and he probably got birds from bill. I think bill had a bunch of birds imported right from Van Hove years ago.
