MENTEN RONNY - RUMMEN
1st NATIONAL TULLE 9,586b. - FASTEST OF 17,035b.
Rummen: Ronny Menten got his 2nd national victory…last year he won 1st National Bourges against 10,111 year birds (also fastest of 45,507b) and now he wins Tulle national against 9,586 year birds and this with an average speed of 1,623.37 m/m and also the fastest of the 17,035 Tulle pigeons.
No-one could ignore it…the shape fairy waved her magic stick over the lofts of Ronny Menten. The Menten pigeons won on all national greater middle distance races either with the old either with the year birds Top 2 provincial. Consequence…in 2017 he clocked already 1 x 1st and 2nd provincial and 5 x 2nd provincial. And then there was the national result out of Argenton last week. Against 7,843 old pigeons the Menten pigeons placed their ring numbers behind places 7 – 10 en 11 ! An omen of what was coming…and look ‘Golden Tulle’ took care of the (for the time being) high light of the season with a national victory !
Ronny has a very extended racing team. He has 45 widow cocks (partners stay home) and another 108 old and yearling pigeons that are being raced on total widowhood. This last group exists out of 36 cocks and 72 hens…every cock is coupled against 2 hens.
National winner “Golden Tulle” is a part of a group of widow cocks. We let Ronny take the word: “In fact, this is the first year that I focus myself on the game with the widow cocks. I had a bit of a special system but with some adjustments here and there, this is a system that I really like. The widow cocks (mainly year birds) didn’t have a winter breeding. They remained in aviaries the entire Winter and middle of January they could go onto the lofts together with 45 hens. They all had to choose a partner and a box. During a month I really had to keep an eye on everything as several fights occurred. After a good month everything was being separated again…about half of the pigeons were breeding by then.
As from then the widow cocks were on widowhood. The special thing in my system is that their new accommodation wasn’t the loft with the boxes but the adjacent aviary. Until 3 weeks ago the widow cocks were day and night in the aviaries. They were being released out of this aviary and after their training they could come into the hallway to eat and drink to go afterwards again in their aviary. The program of the widow cocks was the national program, so they were being basketed every fortnight.
But now…the last 3 weeks they weren’t obliged anymore to stay in the aviary, but could come onto the loft with the boxes. I don’t have to make a drawing of the fact that the widowers team got a “shape boost” from it. They were so eager to defend their territory with constant fights as a result. This wasn’t ideal either and I solved it by placing a small plate in all boxes so from every box I made two. Smaller boxes…less fights as they didn’t have the space anymore to go into a box by two and fight over it. Unbelievable what kind of atmosphere there was on the loft…when they trained outside and I opened the loft, they came in storming like crazy men…I seldom saw something like this.
In a matter of feeding the Beyers mixtures are on the menu. In the beginning of the week it is Beyers Galaxy Light and by the end of week it has changed into Beyers Galaxy Energy. Medically there’s full faith in Raf Herbots. Every fortnight Raf is being consulted and his advice is being followed always. The racing team had this season 3 times a cure against ornithoses and there is the weekly use of the known yellow drops against tricho. The Herbovet and Röhnfried side products are on top of the shelf..
Ronny…from the entire Herbots team congratulations with your 2nd national victory !
