The breeding-lofts are in the top of the garage.


The pigeons

We have started with offsprings of birds from Hartogs, Janssen and Leen Boers. Because of the success that we had with this pigeons, we bought some originals from Theo Hartogs and later also from Leen Boers. Leen Boers is a close friend of our family. Every year he gave us babys from his best breeders and we selected them strictly. So the basic of our stock has been the Leen Boers pigeons. In our loft you found descendants of Mirage 32, Apache, Ferrari, Sprinter, Stier 524, Ballon, Bourges, Intercity, a.s.o. - a family that is raised out of 1st prize-winners.
We have tested pigeons out of some various lofts. The most of them we selected after some years. But we had good results with Schellens-pigeons out of the National 1 and the pigeons from Andre Bellens. They harmonize excellently.

The best racers since 2000 are also out of this traces.

The method

Often fanciers ask what must I do, to become as successfull like you?
First you need excellent pigeons and a good loft, than you must find the necessery feeling. Spend a lot of time with your pigeons. Watch them as often as you can and take many notes. Write down your mistakes and write down what you did well and don't forget to read this notes when the new season starts. Try to touch a lot of very good pigeons.
Since 2001 we race with hens only.
We mate them at the end of December. They rear one child, then we separate them.
The food at race-time is without peas and beans, but we give a protein product (Silberpfeil from Klaus) 2 days a week .
When they come home we give lemon juice and minerals into the water..
If there will be a long-distance-race we feed more corn up to 50%.
