Niels Broeckx (Oud-Turnhout), keeps on pulling prizes out of their hat….

We don’t have to introduce them anymore, the winners of the Olympiad Cat. C in Brussels 2017, with their ‘306’ke’ and all the top 50 national winners and several national KBDB ace pigeons that are shining on their breeding loft as we speak.

In the middle of the summer we paid them a visit to see which top pigeons they’ve pulled out of their hat, as with these kind of high prize percentages you have to have some amazing pigeons.

He comes out of a proven breeding couple and has full brothers and sisters who are able to race like this as well. In his pedigree you will find super pigeons which succeeded both as racing as breeding pigeons like f.e. ‘F16’ Bart&Nance Van Oeckel, ‘Gilly’ Rik Hermans, ‘Steffi I’ Luc Van Mechelen, ‘Kaasboer’ Gaston Van de Wouwer, ‘Olympic Wacko’ Verreckt-Ariën, ‘Golden Survivor’ G&S Verkerk ! This can count as quality, no?

And to pick out another one, there’s BE14-6031218, you won’t find the ‘big names’ in his pedigree but comes out of their own strong strain, the best they’ve kept from the lofts in Baarle-Hertog coupled against a wonderful hen which became 1st Ace pigeon Long Distance Oud-Turnhout in 2010. The grandparents of this one is their so-called ‘Geerinckx-couple’ (NL07-1906095 x BE04-6202026) , Jan and Marleen call them this way although only the hen is Geerinckx-pigeon, but this is for them the easiest way to remember them. They are already parents, grandparent, great grandparents, …of several amazing pigeons, also on other lofts. We’ll talk about that a bit more after that we’ve first had a look at the results of the granddaughter BE14-6031218 that raced from their own loft, again results per 10 without doubles :

23-07-2016  Blois Local                            493km       1 against       49b

Also on other lofts we can find some amazing results from off spring of this ‘Geerinckx-couple’ like f.e. on the loft of the year 2017, Bart & Nance Van Oeckel. Their 1st Provincial Libourne (8th National Libourne) BE16-6056168 ‘Liesje Libourne’ is out of the strain of this super breeding couple from Niels Broeckx.

Not only out of this strain are super results to be found on other lofts with pigeons from Niels Broeckx. Out of their base couple ‘BE09-6053935 Br. Loper Vlieger x BE12-6172262 Miss Turbo Jet’ (on own loft already parents of 5 different top 40 national winners! ) we find at Bart Verdeyen a grandchild that is performing very well, this out of a direct son BE13-6071443 that won himself underneath results at Niels Broeckx:
1 Noyon 540b
9 National La Souterraine 9,136b
33 National Z Gueret 1,561b

Bart Verdeyen bought this pigeon 1,5 years ago on an online auction at Herbots and the first pigeons to come out of him, who became part of their breeding loft in the meantime, was a hit in the rose and could note down a 81st National Limoges against 10,565 pigeons.BE13-6071443

At Dick Koenraadt, Tongerlo, a direct hen BE15-6059854, daughter out a sister of ‘Martine’, their 10th national ace bird KBDB BE15-6059727 x BE12-6133249, a proven breeder and father of several top pigeons, a 3rd Provincial Vierzon against 969 pigeons. Her nestsister races a.o. 12 Melun 754b, 23 Souppes s.L. 827b, 37 Melun 1,077b, ….

At André Devroye from Mechelen, who is very lucky having a full sister of ‘Olympic 306’ke’, children out of this full sister ‘Leentje’ BE14-6031418 raced underneath results:

BE15-6184321 over 10 races in 2017 whereof 8/10 prize ao.:
1 against 1,707b
1 against 141b
8 against 1,093b
9 against 297b
10 against 611b

In 2015 and 2016 raced also a 2nd – 5th – 7th – 13th - … so obviously a pigeon that is collection a nice number of prizes.  

BE16-6113657, this one raced already 12 races in 2017 whereof 11 x prize with ao.
3 against 460b – 30 against 1,673b
3 against 494b – 9 against 1.687b
5 against 269b – 47 against 1.417b
5 against 198b – 16 against 1.657b
5 against 141b – 15 against 1.489b
6 against 224b – 9 against 1.387b
….
As a youngster this cock also had his part of the prizes, so he became the favourite 1st signed of Andre, and doesn’t disappoint yet.  .

And to give a last example of pigeons from Niels Broeckx in performing super is at father and mother Broeckx, also known as Leo and Maria. At the moment they have 2 direct Niels Broeckx youngsters at their loft that are easily winning 1st prizes namely the ‘069’ and the ‘064’. And all of this on the middle distance.

BE17-6056064:
1 Chevrainvillers 1,142b
5 Chevrainvillers 2,434b
11 Chevrainvillers 950b
21 Chevrainvillers 1,963b

The nest sister of this pigeon also races a 8th on Melun against 469b. These are grandchildren of ‘Den Duits’, he’s that kind of a pigeon we don’t know off a lot but is an incredible breeder, a strain that they like to keep onto at the Broeckx family. And on their fathers’ side we can only read the name of ‘Louis Meulemans’, nothing else. Again the proof that Jan Broeckx succeeds in taking the ‘good’ ones out, those ‘old’ pigeons where we don’t know a lot about, only by hear-say, but whereof Jan is convinced these are the ones you need. And if we have a look at the results both on their own loft as on others, we hardly can argue with that. But this as a ‘side’ story.

BE17-6056069:
1 Chevrainvillers 2,003b

This top pigeon is then again the result out of one the many succesfull couplings ‘Niels Broeckx x Bart&Nance Van Oeckel’ and is on mothers’ side a grandchild of the famous ‘F16’ from Van Oeckel.

17-069 PEDIGREE LIESBETH

And we can go like this to the family Struyf, long distance racers from Tielen, Danny Dockx from Oud-Turnhout, and so on….to gather references. Slowly but sure, the blood strains from the Niels Broeckx loft is being spread and until now there’s no fancier to be found, who got lucky in getting something out of these blood strains, that regrets it.

Niels, Jan and Marleen, to say it as Marleen always does ‘Goed Bezig’ (well done) and please do continue like this.

Congratulations !

Liesbeth
