"Shania" is one of the greatest combined racing and breeding champions in the country.  As a Young Bird, "Shania" won 1st Place Overall Club Champion Bird and 1st Place Overall National American Ace Pigeon.  In the years since her fantastic racing accomplishments, "Shania" has been a tremendous foundation breeder, as she is Mother, Grandmother, and Great-Grandmother to (50+) X 1st Place and = 1st, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Overall Champion Birds, and a National Ace Pigeon Award Winner.  In 2006 (3) Different Great-Grandchildren were multiple 1st Place Winners.

 

"Shania" was 1st Place in Show and she is one of the most beautiful looking and handling pigeons we have ever bred.  "Shania" is medium in size with superb muscle quality, a strong vibration in her wing and muscle, silky soft feather, strong back/frame, tight vents, and a bright pearl eye.  A Sister "Faith" was also 1st Place in show, both are simply gorgeous pigeons.  My favorite thing about "Shania" is her personality.   She is extremely tame and super aggressive which is a trait that you often see in Champion Hens.  All I have to do is walk in the loft and "Shania" will fly and land on me or near me and start cooing and strutting around.  Other than 'Snow White", "Shania" is the tamest pigeon we have bred.  "Shania" has been a key factor in our current and past success and her descendents will continue in our success for years to come.
