Half-Brothers "Hang 1106" and "Hangman" have both bred

winners for customers.

Brother of:  "Madison", "Melanie", and "Revolution"

Grandson of:  "Maverick", and "Aaliyah"

Nephew of:  "Cher", "Diesel", and "Aria"

Fast, Consistent, Tough, Beautiful, and Intelligent......all of these words describe "Mercury".  He was outstanding as a racing male and has since become a top breeder of multiple winners.  As a Young Bird "Mercury" was outstanding, winning several races/diplomas and 3rd Place Overall Champion Bird.  He was very consistent placing well week after week in both fast races and tough races.  "Mercury" followed up an outstanding Young Bird campaign with some good placements as a yearling before being added to the stock loft.

 

He is now Father of (22) x 1st or Equal 1st including 1st Place Combine Winners.  Every year "Mercury" breeds super pigeons.  On the final weekend of the 2011 Young Bird series a Daughter of "Mercury" won the Club "A" race by over an hour on a very tough day.  The week before on a tough race a Son was 2nd (Equal 1st).  A Granddaughter of "Mercury" won 1st Overall Club Champion Young Bird 2011 for customer Ken Chisum of Texas.  It should come as no surprise that "Mercury" is a Direct Son of "Amber".  The Children of "Amber" ("Mercury", "Madison", "Melanie", "Revolution", "Orion", "Viper 2.0", etc) have followed a very distinct pattern in that they have all won several races and then immediately followed it up by breeding several 1st Place Winners and Champion Birds as soon as we started breeding from them.  His Brothers and Sisters are Parents, Grandparents, and now Great-Grandparents of an incredible (150+) x 1st or Equal 1st, (13) North American/CA State Awards, and Several 1st Overall and Top-5 Champion Birds.  His Full-Sister "Madison" and Half-Sister "Melanie" are currently our Top-2 Foundation Breeding Hens.

 

As you can see in his picture, "Mercury" is a gorgeous Red Check WF male.  He also has a super handling racing type body. "Mercury" is medium in size with a nice sleek frame and leaner build.  He also has good muscle quality with a strong vibration coming into his wings, silky soft feather, tight vents, and a very nice bright pearl eye.  "Mercury" is highly intelligent with an interesting personality.  When he was a Yearling on our race team he used to fly up the hill with his mate ("Sweet 16") and take her into our work shed.  This was a very long shed and "Mercury" and his mate would then walk about 50 feet to the end of the shed and hide under the cabinets and start cooing.  A lot of times I did not even know he was out of the loft, until I would hear the cooing coming from inside the shed.  This display of independence and intelligence is part of what makes "Mercury" so good.  He's one of those pigeons that when you look at him and handle him, you just know he's a super pigeon.
