Frederik De Wolf from Oudegem – A colony in full growth

11 Jan 2023

Younger fanciers who systematically raise their loft to a better level, that is how we can also describe Frederik De Wolf's colony in Oudegem in East Flanders. In FCD (combination of 4 clubhouses) he became 1st Champion heavy middle distance with the youngsters this year against several good fanciers from the region. He also won 46th National Limoges, 62nd National Argenton and 83rd National Issoudun. This was confirmed the year before, when he won 1st Prov Ace Pigeon longer middle distance yearlings KBDB and 7th Prov Ace Pigeon longer middle distance young birds KBDB. In addition, there were several top results Nationally and in the zone in the longer middle distance and long distance. These are all promising signals from a top loft in the making that won a national victory from Chateauroux in 2020 with a 2nd National Chateauroux against 20,789 youngsters.

Racing team in total widowhood

The racing team is raced here on total widowhood so as not to have to keep too many other pigeons. These are coupled in mid-January and the eggs of the breeders that they raise are placed under them. The youngsters of the best racers are retained. The intention with this racing team is mainly to race the national races of the longer middle distance and long distance. The hens are basketted every week and the cocks every 14 days or 3 weeks. The hens sit on chapellekes all season long and always quite dark, despite this they always fly well. When basketing they come together briefly, when they return home this is until the evening or the day after at 8 am.

The pigeons train once a day, the hens at 2.15 pm, then the youngsters and the widowers at 6 pm. Due to work obligations, more is not possible.

As a youngster, Frederik tries to let them gain a lot of experience, the goal is always 2 National races and these are raced with the sliding door, but very naturally. They have a large aviary in front of the lofts from which they can explore everything as a youngster.

Frederik uses the Aidi mixtures ( Vliegmix 1 – 2 – 3 ) and adds peanuts and sweets towards basketing. Throughout the season, we mainly work with Aidi products (Health Elixir Protein Boost, Carbo Boost, probiotics and omega plus oil) together with Tollyamin Forte and Quick from Schroeder – Tollisan. Furthermore, baker's yeast is regularly added to the feed and yellow drops are used at the beginning of the season. Afterwards they are blindly treated against Tricho every 3 weeks because the pigeons then stay in the basket for several nights.
