A Sister "The 686" is Responsible for:

(250+) X 1st Place or = 1st Place

(15+) National Ace Pigeon Awards

Multiple 1st Place Champion Birds

Daughter of:  "Broken Wing" (#1 Original Janssen Hen, Responsible for Hundreds of 1st Place Winners)

Mother of:  "The Sandman", "Snow White", "Evolution", "Dawn", "Eve", "The Matrix", "Gringo", & "Junior"

Grandmother of:  "Top Gun", "Stacy", "Cheyanne", "Stacy", "Cena", "Charlize",  and "Melanie".

Great-Grandmother of:  "Stone Cold Jr." and "Sapphire"

Sister of:  "The 686", "The Next Big Thing", and "Shea" (Mother of "Shania")

"Cher" in my opinion has probably been the very best foundation breeding hen in all of USA over the past few years.  Compare the actual race results (not advertisements...) "Cher's" results speak for themselves.  "Cher" is responsible for (4) consecutive generations of champions.  In total "Cher" is Responsible for (18) National Ace Pigeon Awards Since 2000.  "Hang 261" the #1 Overall Young Bird in all of California for 2004 is a Great-Granddaughter of "Cher".  Every Son, Daughter, Grandson, or Granddaughter that we have bred from has bred 1st Place Winners.  "Cher" is medium in size with an excellent body, smart look, and tame personality.  "Cher" is loaded with nice muscle, strong frame/back, a nice wing, silky soft feather, tight vents, and a rich pearl eye with a nice circle of correlation.  "Cher" and her Sister "The 686" are probably the Best-2 Performance Foundation Janssen Breeding Hens in the USA at this time.   "Cher" is responsible for such a large portion of our success since 1997, we could not be where we are without the help of this terrific foundation hen.
