The Limoges

Especially the descendants of the line “Limoges” are doing very well.

Top hen “Sanne”

It has been proven several times at the Engels house that both cocks and hens can race very well here, it does not matter to Jules and Yves. They prefer pigeons that can shine several times at National level, that was the case in the past and still is and preferably in real pigeon weather because then the English pigeons are at their best.

The perfect example of this is “Sanne” BE 17-6174383.

She was a top racer and won 3rd National Issoudun 8,248b, 10th Melun 3,249b and 48th National Argenton 15,235b.

After her career she moved to the breeding loft and soon it turned out that she was made of the right wood for breeding.

She became the mother of “312/20” who won 35th National La Souterraine 14,037p, 94th National Argenton 21.282p and 173rd National Chateauroux 22.196p.
