yes andy still got some m8 a son and 2 grandsons were stolen in december from stock loft , but a good few grand children still kicking around ,

i crossed em with my little black birds from my old no 1 pair which were booth grand children of little black . :emoticon-0167-beer: :emoticon-0140-rofl:

i think the favourit breed 1990 was the last one from rapido 76 and his hen at 16 yrs old










that's good stuff. I saw jp mcgough lamenting John has stopped issuing peds. loking at this I have to agree.
it would be nice to be able to track back. purely out of interest. but it does require tedious work and clearly John isn't up to it,

2018 April 12 last night i spoke directly to john crowder called home from Spain where i live to find out some info on the two birds mark jones and john jones kindly passed onto me. in all was a massive haul from Spain to get the birds in Holland but now i have them here and have bred some of the direct little blacks descendants. john was kind enough to take the time to explain how he does things and why the birds i have are direct from little black. as he keeps them all separate he added the blacks are descendants from little black. but what really opened my eyes was when he mentioned rappido was direct sister to little black i had never heard this before. he was telling me when he use to chat to George and how he offered him the best of what he had. he mentioned Silvi zoro as zoro was the daughter of little black old suten petra broken toe which was direct son f little black all the blacks he mentioned are directly related to the pair i have here. john then went onto mention he owned busscheart pride then we discussed how he use to sleep with the birds and had never been on holiday never drank or smoked . just listening to John made me smile then he told me one thing which was upsetting when he said he hasn't got long left here he is 80 years old and just had a major operation. which was little bit upsetting to say the least. his dedication is second to none just being able to speak to what i consider legends of our sport was for me like jr hartley finding his book.
john then said to me you can come here Gary whenever you like and pick from the best i have. i just sat there for was a few seconds with an open jaw and replied slowly with thank you sir.
i could have talked for days with him as we were both on mobiles it was costing a fortune so john kindly gave me his private home number. i shall call him next week to discuss pigeons in much more detail.
I hope that what i write helps somebody in some way to share information is good to see others gain from it is even better so what i have is yours we have to improve or sport and help the younger generation to realise what we had was majestic but as we all know times are changing but the old breed lives on Busschearts are being sourced after but i fear they are all not as they make out to be .
anybody can call me anytime on 0034 628588778 here in spain
or message me here
