Golden breeding base

Their breeding loft is built up with pigeons from their competitors. In the eighties-nineties they went to late Flor, Jos and Jules Engels. The children of “Den 231/86”, “Den 178/94”, “Den Argenton”, “Den Dikke” moved to their loft to build up a base where especially racing and breeding had to be the 2 characteristics. In 2004 they again went for some reinforcement, this time to Berlaar and the strain of ‘Kaasboer’ from Gaston Vandewouwer also made it onto their breeding loft and also the following years several birds moved to Putte as they became really good friends. At this moment about 80% of their breeders are from these 2 basic strains. These were crossed in with birds from Dirk Van Dijck ( strain “Bourges”, “Kannibaal”, “Rambo” ), Vervloesem & Zoon ( strain “Bak 13” ), Jos Maris ( sister “Vriend” superbreeder Koopman ), Luc Daans, Matthias Coel ( strain “Paulien” Albert Derwa ), Wouters – Wouters ( strain “Barbara” and “Argenton” ), Albert Derwa ( strain “Paulien” ) and Gaby Vandenabeele ( strain “Rudy” ) through Gaston Vandewouwer.

Their best breeding couple was discovered by matching these 2 bloodlines.
“6356585/2004” Tornado Cock is a son of “827/93” Son 231/86 J & J Engels coupled to “154/00” Daughter Bourges Dirk Van Dijck coupled to a sister 1st National Argenton from Engels. This cock was being coupled to “6341163/2005” Kaasboerin and Tornado Hen. She is a direct hen from Gaston Vandewouwer and a direct daughter of base breeder “Kaasboer”. This golden breeding blood is found very rare worldwide but here it was a hit in the rose. This couple bred through the years many top pigeons in different generations. That is the strength of this blood strain, they perform very well on the racing loft and afterwards they also become very good breeders !
