Michel Lossignol from Budingen year after year among the best in the region and national level

16 Nov 2022

The colony of Michel Lossignol from Budingen in Flemish Brabant has been known for years for its 1st prize winners and so much more. The pigeons here return home very strong year after year and he runs this colony together with Geert Vlaeyen. Michel in the loft and Geert the man with the papers. Unfortunately, in 2022 they also had to deal with the bird flu vicissitudes that prevented the pigeons from flying for 5 weeks and that had a serious impact on their performance towards the end of the season. But the youngsters have still flown very strongly at the sprint and they will not be done with them in 2023 just like that.

The breeding base here is mainly Willem De Bruijn, who is invariably in every pigeon of this loft, they have bet on this in 2014 and the results with these pigeons are truly magnificent, we therefore also present some top breeders from Willem below who are here with Michel and Geert have brought real toppers into the world for several years.

We should also mention that these pigeons are also doing very well elsewhere in several lofts, national victory for Roger Bruninx from Chateauroux in 2019 and last year 2nd National Ace Pigeon All round young birds KBDB 2021 for Oliviers Geyskens, just to name the most eye-catching report performance.

Proven top racer in the auction

They normally don't sell a single racing pigeon from their loft, but after much insistence I was able to get hold of a topper. BE 19-2086482 “All Round Willem” is a cock that won 2 x 1st and 9 x per 100 in his career.

In 2020 he became 1st Prov Ace pigeon All Round yearlings KBDB 2020 ( 2500 members )
He was born out of “Son Uranus” x “Inteelt Hurricane” ( 100% Willem De Bruijn )

No words, but answers with wings, this classy pigeon has flown to the top over the years and is now being auctioned in this top auction.
