The Zippy family is a short to middle distance family that is Meuleman based, and mainly comes in recessive red or red mottled colors. They tend to be medium sized with good muscle structure and have above average eyesign. They have been responsible for winning Grand Champion best of show Des Moines IA in 04', and 3rd Champion Bird 03' OBs. for me (took first three Champion birds in my club). I have had tremendous luck with them crossed in my Black Knight Family. I have pictured below a good cross section of some of my top Zippy breeders that are a good representation of the family.
AU 01 PBX 1026 "Annie"
One of my foundation Zippy breeding hens. Annie is medium sized and a good representation of the Zippy breeding hen stock. This family excells at the short/middle distance races and have crossed in well with my other families of racers.
AU 01 PBX 1029 "Angus"
One of my top Zippy breeding cocks as he is solid like an Angus bull and built to race. He currently resides in the breeding loft, and as the photo shows, is a very classy pigeon with excellent body confirmation.
AU 01 PBX 78 "Bodacious" One of my foundation Zippy cocks. Bodacious as you can see from the picture is a heavily mottled recessive red, and one of my favorites in the loft.
AU 02 PBX 1366 "Renegade"
Renegade is one one of my foundation Zippy breeding cocks that has a rich red eye and his youngsters perform best at the short/middle distance. He is above average in size and gets his name for his aggressiveness in the loft.
