2013 h AU-13-SLI-3475 Endeavor
Endeavor was entered in Ken Easley's Royal Racing Pigeon Invitational OLR as a young bird. On a smash 150 mile race from which only five birds returned, she was discovered coming home 3 days later by walking up the driveway. What heart and determination! She was best overall average speed up until one week before the smash. Rather than run the risk of losing her she was brought home. Endeavor is a small-medium built hen with great feathering, muscle and balance. She is very buoyant and feels like she could fly for days. Rated 11.5 by Freddy Rivera as a breeder.
