The “KENZO” Dynasty of the late FRANS NIJNS, Geetbets

A “Life’s work” of more than 75 years pigeon sport !

“Fancier since the day he could walk,

 till the day he said goodbye.”

 

Frans NIJNS, Geetbets

Each fancier of the province of BRABANT and a big part of Limburg, knew the sympathetic Frans Nijns.  In spring 2017, more specific on April 13th 2017, he died at the age of 94. Frans was liked by everybody, a man of nature, a top fancier, who always was present on local and regional champion celebrations. His MOMENT OF GLORY was there with the super cock KENZO, which won the title of 1 NAT ACE-PIGEON LITTLE MD KBDB in 2007, at the age of 3. He moved to the important breeding loft of the Herbots family from Halle-Booienhoven. Here he was and still is, one of the top cocks and this at the age of 13! (In 2017, one of his sons was classified among the National Ace-pigeons AllRound KBDB !!).  For many years, Frans regularly was to be found at the top of our sport and this as well from Momignies 110 km as till and with Barcelona.  He always scored with top results.
The whole family was inspired by the pigeons sport and each weekend was a party ! To the club in Geetbets, his death was a great lost because he had been the president for years and he did all he could for the pigeon sport.

The base of this colony are no “BIG NAMES” but more important; “GOOD PIGEONS”.

The fact that he owned “GOOD PIGEONS” again was proved last season.  The birds have been taken care of by his son in law and his grandson Davy. On the opening race of the Brabant Union, they won 1° Provincial from Vierzon (464 km) against 1521 old birds with the “Vince” 2023022-15. Already as a yearling, he won the victory from Sens (325 km) against 254 yearlings. They had a good season with the old and the yearling birds.  They didn’t darken the youngsters because they don’t know this “system”. They did all that was possible and they can talk about a good end.

 

10 Top-pigeons at the base

When you take a look at the auction programme, you’ll often find the same pigeons. 10 top-pigeons, all family. 10 toppers that made this “allround” colony a strong competitor these last years.
