THEO & MARKUS LECKE .. GERMAN TOP QUALITY

For this report we have a nice talk with father-son combination Lecke Theo and Markus from Holzhausen (Germany). Father Theo is already since 1951 pigeon fancier. He tells about the good old days when pigeon sport was the hobby of a lot of people. In those days there were more than 30 fanciers in his town! Altough the number of fanciers is going down fast, Theo kept racing pigeons. Begin ’70 he became the general champion of his club and since that period Theo became the best fancier of his region, even on national level he became the man to beat.

In 1982 Markus became as a 10 year old boy also a fancier. He helped his father as much as he could and together they made their colony even stronger.  But small boys became big and Markus started his own family and has a time demanding job. Markus did not want that his father has to do all the work on the lofts he asked his friend Stefan Konieczny to help. Although Stefan has his own loft he agreed to help Theo and Markus as much as he can.

Conclusion… in Holzhausen we met a very motivated team… Theo and Stefan on the lofts and Markus as the person who is purchasing top birds and subscribing to participate in different international One Loft Races… and this with a lot of success

CURRENT BASE BIRDS

The loft is a normal wooden garden loft with 4 sections for widowers, 1 section for the widowhood hens and 2 sections for the young birds.

The stockbirds are housed in another loft. Theo and Markus have always invested a lot of money in the quality of their breeders. At this moment they have for example 5 direct children of “Rudy” (Gaby Vandenabeele) , 4 direct children of “Olympic Niels” (Dirk Van Dyck), 3 direct children of “Ad” (Wouters Marcel) an 4 direct children of “Tom” (André Roodhooft) !

This says more than enough….
