Boonen Pigeons from Buggenum – Super class on Marseille in 2019

04 Feb 2020

In 2019 we had to deal again with a very hot summer which made that the extreme long distance races were very hard for our pigeons. And the yearly tradition makes that Marseille is a very hard one anyway as the pigeons have to deal with the Rhone Valley. 

Where class have to come up in these kind of circumstances we found the best colony on Marseille in 2019 in the Dutch city Buggenum. Wil won both the 1st as the 3rd National Marseille in Holland with 2 yearling hens and also clocked a cock for the 12th National spot ! In total they had 6 pigeons within the top 100 National ! Wil & Johan Boonen are 2 brothers who run together the colony and show themselves on the extreme long distance races. Those who want to be at the top on a national level has to go and pay a visit to these guys. 

Have a look at the last results from  2013-2019  and you will notice immediately that they have true quality on their lofts.
