LENAERTS PATRICK - RUMMEN

1st NATIONAL TULLE 7,449 OLD BIRDS

Rummen: It’s a real pleasure seeing someone enjoying his national victory as Patrick does. A very emotional voice…very emotional handling…Patrick doesn’t know what hit him. Pigeon sport can be this touching.

Patrick already fills out a loft list since 40 years. As a little boy he started off on his own racing the pigeons. No one in his family ever had a pigeon in their hands. Since 1993 he races from the current address and the base pigeons where the successes come from are a.o. from Vanoppen-Luyten, Davy Tournelle, Berckmans Roger, Mariën-Putseys and Jo Claeskens.

SYSTEM

Patrick started off the season with a racing team of 30 widow cocks and 25 racing hens. Both are being raced on the pure widow hood (partner stays at home). Next to this Patrick has about 25 breeding couples and about 100 youngsters. This last group is being raced in their birth year only on the middle distance
The widow cocks were coupled on the 6th of December. This coupling is done at the same time as the coupling of the breeders as they put the eggs of the breeders in the nest of a large part of the widow cocks, this way the breeders can start breeding a second round of eggs rather fast. Once the youngsters were weened, they all got was separated. There isn’t a second coupling in Spring.  The first time the widow cocks saw their hen again was at homecoming of their first training flight.

In a matter of feeding Patrick mixes different mixtures of Matador and Versele-Laga. As a base there’s Gerry Plus (Black Label) and when the basketing day gets near the mixture is being accomplished with sports- and energy mixtures.

Medically, our Tulle winner goes on consult either to Karlo Van Rompaey either to Raf Herbots. The week before Tulle, Patrick went to see Raf Herbots…there wasn’t a problem. Before the start of the season the pigeons were clarified from ornithoses with a cure and he uses yellow drops against trichomoniases.

THE STORY BEHIND A NATIONAL VICTORY

The national victory out of Tulle was won by a chequered widow cock named ‘Primo’. “Primo” (B15-2040698) is from the larger type, a real block of dynamite by hand. Patrick explains: “my national winner went into the basket super motivated, but to be honest, I already expected him the week before on Argenton. I’ll explain why: “Primo” lives in the upper box, but the week before Argenton he made himself boss on the floor. I saw this, and to motivate him extra, I gave him a carton box on the day of basketing. “Primo” was able to rule over his new territory now. With high expectations he was basketed for Argenton, but “Primo” just won a prize. But what happened next…during his stay in the basket I left the carton box on the loft and a home staying cock made it his own during this time. When “Primo” arrived from Argenton he wanted to get to the carton box on the floor but there was the intruder. They immediately got into a fight and I had to take the home staying cock out of the loft or they were going to kill each other, it was this bad. “Primo” could stay until late in the evening on his carton box together with his hen and then I took both the box as the hen from the loft. And…you feel it coming…indeed…a few hours before basketing for Tulle, his dearest wife and well-fought carton box were back in the loft again. You saw the motivation of “Primo” grow every minute and it was complete when I placed the intruder again on the loft as well short before basketing. They started off fighting immediately…I kept an eye on it for a few minutes and then “Primo” was taken of the loft direction Tulle.

His arrival was one as it should be…not a centimetre wrong…not a second wasted…straight onto the sputnik !

Patrick…from the entire Herbots team congratulations with your first national victory. Enjoy it !
