SU22-2651 Light Chequer Hen from Joe Murphy of Fife, Scottish and international Barcelona winner.

This hen was gifted to Billy Bilsland of Ayton and was raced right out to the last Federation race. When Billy decided to give up his birds, he gave me back the chequer hen. You will see that she is extremely well bred.

SIRE: ‘2070’ blue cock. Full of Scottish National winners in his pedigree. Sire is ‘2778’, named John Paul he is my No 2 stock cock, (his brother is my No 1). Both are sons off Robbie’s Boy, winner of 1st and 31st Open SNFC Falaise 522 miles, when mated to a full sister to Mary, a 12 times National winner for Jock King of Kirkcaldy. John Paul was mated to Lady of Port Seton, bred by Sinclair Thomson & Son of Port Seton. John Paul is the sire of 18th Open Ypres; 19th Open Clermont; 86th Open Alençon 573 miles; 134th Open Alençon; 319th Open Littlehampton, 52nd Open Arras in 2020. Robbie’s Boy is the sire to ‘6966’ winner four times in SNFC. A very special pigeon and my stock loft is built round him. Robbie’s Boy was mated to ‘1580’ a sister to Mary, who won 12 times from France for Jock King. The dam of ‘2070’ is Lady of Port Seton, her sire is Mr Consistent, a winner 14 times in SNFC races. He won a SNFC Gold Award (5 times from Channel); Silver Award (3 times from over the Channel); Bronze Award 5 times winner from Inland National races (he won 9 times from inland Nationals). A pigeon we all dream of owning and we take our hat off and show the greatest respect to Sinclair Thomson and his son, who bred and raced this Champion of Champions as far as I’m concerned.

DAM: SU22-2651, a very exclusive chequer hen named Kevin Special. She is inbred to THE SPECIAL ONE, winner of 1st International Barcelona (ONLY BIRD HOME ON THE DAY OF THE RACE). Mated to inbred children of New Laureaat, winner of 1st International Barcelona. Sire of Kevin Special was Nigel, bred from the Quiet One, bred by Crammond & Langstaff, he was purchased on a loft visit. He is loaded with 1st Open International Barcelona winners. Sire is Special 202, a son of The Special One when paired to Fontwell Lady 63, a daughter of Laureaat Gold Wing, winner Barcelona 2011 to 2013. 1st National 10,686 birds; 1st International 25,382 birds; 2012: 8th Nat 1,281bs; 41st International 26,650 birds; 2013: 323rd National 11,590 birds. Dam of Kevin Special was Marcella, bred from Special 202, son of the Special One, 1st International Barcelona 2015, when paired to a daughter of New Laureaat x Kleine Jade, BOTH 1st Open International Barcelona WINNERS. Dam of Marcella top International hen, from a son of the Special One, 1st International Barcelona paired to a daughter New Laureaat x Kleine Jade, both 1st International Barcelona winners. Dam of Marcella is Double Top, bred from a son and daughter mating of the New Laureaat. MARCELLA contains the very best of BARCELONA WINNING PIGEONS. She was sold at my sale after Kevin’s death. Believe me, I cannot give any better.
