PIGEON BIDS EXTRA EDITION ENGELS JOS & JULES

Pigeon sport at the Engels’ house in Putte (BE) is a 70 year old story. Flor Engels is a pigeon fancier since 1947. Son Jos (°1939) was involved in the new hobby of his father from the start on. His brother Jules (°1940) only got passionate about pigeon sport a few years later. But that it became a family sport real quickly, was sure.
Until 1980 they raced under the name of father ‘Flor Engels’, although both brothers were already very near involved in running the continuous growing pigeon colony. It was hard work from time to time as the pigeons season was in the same season of growing vegetables and this is where the different families had to live on.
From 1980 on they raced under the name ‘Flor Engels and Sons’ and this until his death in 2002. Since then it became ‘Jos & Jules Engels’.

It doesn’t look like it that Jos and Jules have successors for their successful pigeon colony. And although the successes seem to come as easy in 2017 as ever before, they are thinking about slowing down a bit in Putte. Both men are 77 and 78 and are still busy with the pigeons on a daily bases from dusk till dawn. These are many hours in the high season. It isn’t just the maintenance of the many lofts but also loads of other things: administration of the breeders, results, pedigrees, bookkeeping, loft visits from interested customers from home and abroad, training the pigeons, basketing, bringing in the clocks, and so on...

"It is all getting a bit too much for our old bones", is what both Jos and Jules say. That’s why they decided to reduce the breeding loft drastically with the help of the family Herbots trough a sale in November. But the brothers Engels don’t have the intention to sell what they can miss, no, they are going to sell all breeders older then 2014, this together with some younger future breeders of 2016 and 2017.

We can already tell you that there are loads of proven breeders in between:

-        Direct children of base bird “178”

-        Direct children of “As” (5th Nat. ace KBDB Fond)

-        Direct children of “Limoges” (1st National Limoges)

-        Both parents of 2nd National Chateauroux ‘17

-        Proven race birds such as “Gaby I” (winner 4th National Limoges 8,303b.)

-        and so much more….
