This Van Wanroy hen (and her brother also listed on this site) have been used exclusively to cross with my main family to add a little more distance capability. To-date this cross has been very successful with the best crossed young birds crossed back to the main family of birds. This hen, along with her brother are now surplus to my needs. The Van Wanroy pigeons have been the most successful Euro long distance birds imported into Australia.
Jos Thone having used these birds in the development of his own family. Victor Vansalen in his book - "Masters of Breeding & Racing" states that in his opinion that these are the fastest distance birds in Europe.
This hen and her brother have both been vaccinated for PMV and have not been in contact with the Rotavirus.
