DEGEE JEAN PHILIPPE - FRONVILLE

1st NATIONAL LIBOURNE 3,440 OLD BIRDS
FASTEST OF 6,025b.

Distance: 736km
Velocity: 1229,48 m/m

Fronville: Honestly, I had never heard of the village Fronville but when I called Jean-Philippe he made clear that I had to be in the neighbourhood of the more known Hotton. Luckily we have GPS-systems and arrived on time and save in Fronville (province of Luxembourg).
Jean-Philippe lives in a farmstead and used to be a horse fancier. The name tag ‘Ecurie’ is still above the front door of the immense stable. ‘Jolie Darco’ was latterly the parade horse…a top name in the international horse world ! Nevertheless, Jean-Philippe got an accident and had to say goodbye to the horse sport. After the necessary revalidation he decided to rebuilt the horse boxes into pigeon lofts. Jean-¨Philippe tells: “due to my accident I can’t do everything as smooth anymore and that’s why I’m very glad that I can count on the help of Jean-Marie Dumont. He knows the pigeons true and true and knows perfectly how to prepare them for a top result. Without him we couldn’t speak here about pigeon sport.”

LOCAL FANCIERS

Jean-Philippe and Jean-Marie tell: “In 2000 I filled out my first loft list and I started off with pigeons of local champions. No well-known names but fanciers that have the quality needed. Out of fear to forget anybody I won’t tell you any names.
We started of the season with an extended racing team of 30 old cocks, 40/45 year bird cocks and 40/45 year bird hens. The old cocks are being raced on the classic widowhood. The others are from the beginning on raced on total widowhood and as from the second part of the season on nest position. 
As preparation all pigeons bred early. Could race a couple of youngsters and before the hen could lay a second time everything was being separated. The first races are being done as calm as possible, meaning….cocks and hens only see each other shortly after a race. As from the middle distance races they are being motivated a bit more with the goal make top results on the greater middle distance, long distance and extreme long distance.
In a matter of care you won’t discover any big secrets here. The mixtures come from “Colombi” and we follow the 3-stages system. Concrete it means first a recuperation mixture, then a light mixture and last a fat rich mixture. With the exception of electrolytes we hardly give any side products.
Medically we check all pigeons ourselves for trichomoniases with our own microscope. When we see something they are being treated with Spartrix and when we hesitate we contact vet Schroëder. Against ornithoses we only cured at the beginning of the season.
We breed youngsters the entire year true, this is necessary as we know many losses due to the bird of prey. The youngsters from the first round race at least one national race, the others do as many short distance races as possible.. “

NATIONAL WINNER

The national winner (B16-1176374) is a marvellous blue hen. Average built, well feathered and a super strong pigmented eye in her character full head. She won her national victory on nest position. On the day of basketing she was on 10 day breeding. On Montélimar she was basketed the same way but failed and left her eggs be. She came back on to nest position and now it was bingo.

2016 wasn’t raced
