Hagens gebroeders (Achthuizen) also last season top results on the marathon races
27 Apr 2022
Achthuizen: The Bloemstraat n° 7 in Achthuizen… how much pigeon history hasn’t there been written. An introduction for Rinus, Ad and Sonja isn’t necessary anymore. Therefore is there colony known to good internationally. Known for their results on the (inter)national marathon races but also known for the many successes that other fanciers have set with the Hagens pigeons.
The art in pigeon sport isn’t to get at the top but is staying at the top and this is what our sympathetic brothers Hagens succeed in. As proof we will put the results of the past seasons 2020 and 2021 on the table.

How it all started
As a young lad and starting pigeon fancier you never start with the idea of being famous as a pigeon fancier everywhere in Holland within 35 years. Well, the Hagens brothers didn’t start with this intention either, but in the meantime, so many years later, they aren’t only ‘world famous’ in their own South-Holland but also in the farthest corners of our globe. You can’t name a country or someone of that area has visited or bought pigeons from them.
To be able to reconstruct the origin of their success pigeons we have to go back in time, namely until 1984. In this period they were short distance racers. But the call for the long distance world became louder and more tempting. The first purchases for the more heavy work were at John Lalieu and Tjeu van Doorn. They had the noble blood strains from the Jan Theelen-strain on their lofts. In 189 they made definitely the switch towards the long distance. There for they went looking for reinforcements that they could cross in with their already present long distance pigeons. This is how they bought at the de Weerdt brothers 12 late youngsters and also a few at Laurenz Huberts. Also via co-breeding with the van Doorn brothers out of Someren they got good pigeons. End of the nineties and beginning of 2000 the brothers Bruggeman out of Assendelft amazingly well, so Ad and Rinus also went for the perfect crossing material to them.
Also of the current generation of long distance champions a few pearls moved to the beautiful Achthuizen. This is how they got pigeons at Arjan Beens, Peter and Hans-Peter Brockamp and with the Belgian Barcelona champion Frans Bungeneers.
Champion breeders from the Hagens colony
This amazing hen won herself 1st International Barcelona hens but her gene material is maybe even more impressive! By crossing in their own pigeons to the strain of ‘Sarina’, many fanciers succeeded.
