VAN MECHELEN LUC - OUD-TURNHOUT

1st NATIONAL BOURGES 12,448 YEARBIRDS

Oud-Turnhout: National winner Bourges year birds was clocked by the known Antwerp champion, Luc Van Mechelen, Oud-Turnhout. His blue year bird hen, “Nafi Thiam” (B16-6057818) left, with a speed of 1,346.62 m/m, all the other year birds racers out of Bourges behind. To the question what her drive was to get this top result, Luc couldn’t reply immediately, but we hold her in our hands only a few hours after her victory and she was so eager to get free to be with her cock and box again. Never seen before. 

BASE

They have been racing extremely well for years now in the Kleine Heerestraat in Oud-Turnhout. Luc got the love for the pigeons from his grandfather Alois Swaans. From his 12th birthday on, Luc was always to be found on the lofts. First they only had showing pigeons but at his 18th birthday he got, behind his parental home where he still lives, his own loft. At the first instant he got off with the pigeons from his grandfather Alois, but everything changed when he got to know Albert Van Miert. Albert taught him everything he needed to know about pigeons. Through Albert he got in touch with the Janssens Brothers (Arendonk) and the first Janssens pigeons moved to Oud-Turnhout in 1999. In 2003 pigeons from Heremans-Ceusters came to strengthened the colony. Other successful investments were done at Maurits Hasendonckx, Ad Schaerlaeckens, Geerinckx LBJ, Vandenabeele Gaby and some other friends pigeon fanciers.

RACING HENS

Luc is a poultry keeper…and not a small one as in his company his chickens produce daily 60,000 eggs. Next to his busy professional life, Luc finds, together with his brother Guy, relaxation in the pigeon sport and also here they keep 60 racing hens, 35 widow cocks and 250 youngsters.

As preparation to the racing season a part of the racing hens are being coupled early against his best widow cocks. The first round of eggs are being replaced and they can raise the second round on their own. Before the hens are about to lay again, they move to the aviaries. Acting like this, Luc gets 4 youngsters out of his racers and can quickly evaluate their breeding skills.

The racing hens which didn’t breed, stay in the aviaries the entire winter and can train daily when the weather allows it. In this period the hens train to 2h without touching the rooftop. When the hens, that did a winter breeding are being separated, they are being put together in small groups with the group of training hens, as from the end of January, beginning of February. Reason is not to disturb the training rhythm of the hens.

End of March and beginning of April the hens race Quievrain (135km). This without seeing their partner. On Wednesday the 12th of April they were left with their cocks and on the 15th of April they raced their first Noyon (240km). After this, the widow hood was a fact.

During the season, the racing hens remain in the aviaries. From the aviary they are being released for training and have to stay at least for 70 minutes in the air. After their training they return on the loft, are being fed in the corridor and after 30 minutes they go into the aviary again. In the evening, one hour before it gets dark, the hens can, after their second feeding, got back onto the loft where all boxes are closed and where’s only a small shelf (13cm on 13cm) is available to sleep on. Early in the morning they go back into the aviaries to be released for training again. What the daily trainings are concerned…as mentioned is this 70 minutes in the beginning of the week and the more the day of basketing is approaching, they have to train for 90 minutes.

CARING

Feeding isn’t an art over here…as base a sports mixture from Ronny Van Tilburg is being used mixed with Super Diet. The part Super Diet is being reduced afterwards. They can eat all they want during 30 minutes and then the food is being taken away.

Medically, it is vet Stijn Rans that comes to examine the pigeons. Before the season they were being cured against tricho during one week and since then no tricho cure is being given anymore (neither yellow drops). Nothing has been given against head diseases this season either.

Luc and Guy…congratulations from the entire Herbots team and we are convinced this wasn’t the last we’ve seen from you yet! We would like to wish you a lot of success with it.
