"Orion" is one of the most beautiful and perfect handling pigeons that we own.  An absolutely stunning pigeon and also very intelligent.  He caught my eye right out of the nest and in 2006 I bred only one round from him to race.  One of those youngsters was (3) x Equal 1st Combine.  I did not breed from "Orion" in 2008 and 2009 because we did not fly Young Birds those years.  In 2010, I flew Young Birds again and bred two rounds from "Orion".  Three of the four youngsters I bred from him were 1st or Equal 1st and 2 of those Daughters flew well all season with one of them again being an Equal 1st Combine winner in 2012 Old Birds.  "Orion" is now Father of (10) x 1st Place or Equal 1st.

 

Both of "Orion's" Parents are 1st Place Winners and his Father "Top Gun" was a 2nd Place National Award Winner and 2nd Overall Club Champion Young Bird.  Brothers and Sisters of "Orion" have won (45) x 1st Place or Equal 1st and (5) National Ace Pigeon Awards.  A Half-Sister won 1st Place Overall California State Hall of Fame Young Bird 2004 and 4th Overall AU National Ace Young Bird 2004.

 

Brothers and Sisters of "Orion" are Parents and Grandparents of an incredible (100+) x 1st Place or Equal 1st and (10) National Ace & California State Hall of Fame Awards.  Brothers and Sisters are also Parents and Grandparents of several money winners in One Loft Races.  Almost all of our current top foundation breeders are directly related to "Orion".

 

"Orion” is a beautiful Red Check WF male that is outstanding in the hand.  He is medium in size with a tight body/frame, outstanding muscle, silky feather, nice vibrating wing, tight vents, and a nice pearl eye.  He has always been one of my favorites since we bred him and really stands out in the loft.  The Daughters that he breeds are always flawless in the hand and stand out in the loft just like he does.  In most lofts “Orion” would be the best handling pigeon in the loft.  His Grandfather “The Big Show” was also 1st Place Champion in Show.
