Flying Tipplers

from the Kitbox

Foundation Hen


This hen 3795 FTA 85 was raised by Rex Leon.  She was out of a pair of Lovatts from Richard Seabridge.  Father was a Red and the mother was a Grizzle #10. Although as a young bird she had flown 10 hours herself before Rex stocked her, she proved to be the most prolific producer of top flying birds in my entire loft.   Her blood could be found in almost any of the pedigrees you would come across.   She was related to two of the birds which flew 18:05 but not related to the Red Bar Spread 1151 which was also in that 18:05 kit.  (See the page about 157.)
