In 2017, The No Sweat Lofts will be mating these two silvers together. They are but one of the pairs which will be among "THE SILVER BLOOD." There will be an entire line of silvers within the 2017 Breeding Program which will be related together. These are outstanding long-distance Heitzman Sions, Each bird is perfect in body and they represent the classic Sion type produced by Charles Heitzman in great form; only many are smaller in size. Most of these silvers are dark-eyed, deriving from "The Old Gris" Sion bloodlines with "black eyes." They were the very best which Paul Sion and Heitzman ever flew and recognized as such throughout the world. These are beautiful pigeons and easy to admire. Most of these birds are coming down from an old powder Silver cock named "300." He flew 500 miles six times and 600 miles twice. He has a very unique eye, possibly the most interesting eye that the No Sweat Lofts have ever owned. This "SILVER BLOOD" running throughout the No Sweat Lofts is as close to the original Sions once bred by Charles Heitzman as can be found. Many of the birds from those acquired in the 1970's directly from Heitzman lived to be 20 plus years in age. And many of those bred as late as 13 and 14 years old. This is one of the characteristics of this blood. They mature fast and they live long lives. They normally have rich supple feathering and the many high qualities they possess make them the most beautiful and finest flying long-distance silvers in the world. This pair show here are: AU-2014- KY 156 Silver Bar Cock, 504 miles as a YOUNG BIRD - and - AU-2016--AA-1792, Silver Bar Hen. Never flown. Bred strictly for stock. 156 is bred from 8222 Silver Cock and 151 Strawberry Hen. This blood flew well in a race series Indiana and in North Carolina in 2016. The silver hen, 1792 is a direct daughter out of "300" Silver Cock and a Blue Hen which flew 500 miles five times. The 2017 young birds from this mating should be nothing but outstanding.
