In the fall of 2008, when I decided to get back into pigeons I decided to add a boost to my old family, and after asking around ended up ordering 6 birds from Bob Duhra. The quality of these birds was so good I ordered more. I should say out of that first shipment I bred the first year a race winner and best bird in the club as a yearling. After many hours on the phone and several trips to Calgary a great friendship developed, which allowed me to get many birds he wouldn't let go of for anybody else.

Then in the fall of 2010 Tony Alves, one of the best flyers in Canada and a close personal friend of Mike Ganus decided to sell his stock loft and concentrate on his great one loft race 'The Great Canadian Classic'. So I couldn't let a chance like this get away, and most of his top breeders came to Saskatchewan. I am sure you will find something that will help you.

I am breeding from Wout Spierings' Best

One of the best so far is my 778 family. Bob Duhra's best breeder, a son out of Super Champ and a solid gold 2 Olympic pigeons. The best bird in Canada this year is a son of 778, #80. I am breeding from 14 children off 778 including 02-26043 breeder 5x1, 2362 his nestmate sold for $2500 at auction, his brother also here 1916 breeder of one cock 14x1st or = 1st and 3 x digest ace pigeon and full brothers 07-28946 bred 1st place and 08-2347 bred overall ace pigeon in his first year breeding.
