Dennis Veugelers from Nieuwstadt goes to Maastricht 2024 with 2 Olympiad pigeons

19 Nov 2023

In the middle of the season we drove to Nieuwstadt in the Netherlands to visit the Veugelers family. A colony that revolves around the entire family and where they have been participating at a high level for years. The colony is run by Dennis, his wife Chanou and Dennis' parents. During my visit the performances were excellent and of course the season was still in full swing. Now after the end of the season you can speak of one of their best seasons ever and with 2 Olympiad pigeons they are one of the best colonies in the Netherlands.

The current racing team is divided between Dennis' father and one loft with Dennis himself since 2023. This includes 9 widowers who will fly the middle distance program and there is also a team of young pigeons that will also fly here at Dennis's home from 2023.

The last top pigeon we would like to introduce to you is “Nicha”

NL 21-1398934 “Nicha”

Who can say that he wins a provincial victory against more than 5,000 pigeons and then immediately breeds a pigeon from this hen that also wins a 1st against more than 1,000 pigeons? “Nicha” is such a young top hen that has these top qualities.

She is a granddaughter of stock sire “Chuck Norris” x “Nichelle” (Granddaughter Olympic Solange G & S Verkerk)

Congratulations on these top results to the entire Veugelers family from the entire HERBOTS TEAM.
