I am a biology major and the more we learn about genetics, the more inclined I become to get rid of all my pigeons that aren't related to two keys pairs for 2015 breeding. As many of you know I have had very good luck with my Fabrys I wonder who else has some good Fabrys on here?

I have 4 Fabry birds in my breeding loft from Black Lake lofts, they are from the old Jerry Wallace bloodline I will fly there off spring this year on my old bird team. I have a blue check pied hen that looks just like the one in the last pic,:cool:

Hey Shokri, I'm a friend of Bill and Clarence here in Washington. Bill has the Grantham Fabry's and I have the Jerry Wallace Fabry's that Dave o'Shields bred for Larry Hollingsworth in Idaho. I also got the red check McArthur Fabry's and an inbred fabry from Frank McLaughlin's line. I can text pictures if you want to see some of them. And also a chocolate check splashed from Frank McDonough. I like keeping the old lines. Once they're gone they're gone. I want to send you a pair to fly that are Pure Fabry from the Grantham line for your auction. Not sure if Bill has talked to you about it yet

That 652 hen is the best looking and handling hen of the bunch. I have her nestmate brother as well. They're inbred to McLaughlins 554 cock

I had some Aiglon and Mcarthur blood, they were my best. Started off with them and did really well. There was a local guy here who brought in the family and flew nothing but the old blood. My day birds first yr racing old birds were all off fabrys. I have a buddy who still has the family but he is pricey. He has great records to go along with the family

So Shokri , your saying that only your fabrys race well for you ? I thought you had some good Deveriendt blood in your loft too.

I can understand why a person would like to have a "family" of birds in quality but most of my best racing birds are multi family crosses . I would latterly have to start over if I wanted to have only one family by name .

I said I wanted to build my family around two key pairs the first pair is a pair of Fabrys ever other Fabry I have is related to that original pair, the second key pair is a pair of Devriendts so really I am thinking of maintains two separate lines crossing them into each other and then crossing them back into the other family.

For example breed a Devriendt to a Fabry stock the ones that prove themselves and breed them back to a Fabry (now we are at 3/4 Fabry 1/4 Devriendt) breed it again to a Fabry until I get to 7/8 one strain 1/8 the other than at that point breed to a Devriendt again, eventually they'll be Sho-Time strain with all the crossing back and forth.
