2 x Winner and brother of best bird in EPPU 2015
Gavin races in the Eastern Province Pigeon Union based in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
Herewith a short brief:
Due to business commitments Gavin only races every second year which he attempts with young birds.
The bloodline of his birds is a result of the crossing of birds purchased from the lofts of the late Piet Alberts and the late Monty Van Der Berg.
He had previously purchased pedigree birds from various lofts but these birds did not work for him in his loft.
Gavin’s success speaks for itself:
2016: • 8th Overall in the Union • Best Bird in the Union Blue Hen ZAOP 2015 Ring no 16384 • Also achieved the following best birds 5, 17,18,19,41 and 42
2017: • 3rd Overall in the Federation – approximately 180 members • 5th Overall in the Union – approximately 180 members • Also achieved the 2nd and 3rd best birds in the Union – Blue Cock ZAOP 2016 Ring no 7144 and Blue Cock ZAOP 2016 Ring no 16040 respectively
2019: • 3rd Overall in the Union – approximately 180 members • 3rd Overall in the Federation – approximately 180 members • Best bird in the Union – Blue Hen ZAOP 2018 Ring no 6912 • Other best birds in the Union was 7,8,,23 29,,37,41,43,79,91 positions
The birds on the auction is the birds that are keeping Gavin in the top 10 in the Union at all times. There are approximately 180 members.
The reason for the sale is that Gavin will not be racing in 2020 and cannot keep the birds in stock as the parents are still young. These birds will be a benefit to anyone who purchases them.
