Still got a 15 yo hen in the loft from Jock Allen hen x the Stirling cock. Both pigeons were the property of Jock & Isobel Alston who need no introduction.

The above fanciers bred many winners down through these pigeons and many owe their success to them.

My 15yo hen above is dam and g dam to winners for me and others and despite her age she will be given a chance to breed this year with a young cock.


The very best of Scottish distance blood Stuart. Hope she lays some nice eggs for ye

As a 14 yo last year she laid no problem.
However I had an accident with the only yb from the first round sods law.
Off the top of my head I never got another one til around August. A wee hen am not to keen on but we will see how it goes.
Try her with a different ylg cock this year.

My time in from Falaise 53rd Open last year is a g daughter of her. Sire of the Falaise hen scored a few times best being 31st Open SNRPC Arras the dam was 49th Open in the same race.
In my last race before moving house in the summer of 2016 I managed to win a good steady race in a N East wind from Leicester 260 mls with a cock same way bred as the 53rd Open Falaise hen.
A few other children and g children from the "Alston hen"as I call her
have also scored from Arras, Billericay, W /Flats in club fed and National level plus the other club races at club/fed level.

Just wish I could have had a few more from the old Alston hen as I never got her til she was around 10yo !
