The season at the Broeckx family is running as a train, top results and a very high prize percentage follow each other really quickly week after week. 

The past weekend they had Chateauroux national planned and Jan & Marleen basketed 22 old pigeons who had to do the journey of 555km to their loft. They win the 1st National Zone Chateauroux (20th National 5,140b and 4th Provincial 676b) but also the rest of the team did well and won on a zonal level the underneath results :

1st National Z Chateauroux : BE19-6066058 ‘Chateauroux Runner’ 

The pigeon that gave them the gold medal on Chateauroux zone is a two-year old hen named ‘Chateauroux Runner’, as in the ‘Runner’ family out of the golden breeding couple who are the parents to ‘Olympic 306’ke’. So she is once again, as most of their top pigeons, a breeding result out of a full brother to ‘Olympic 306’ke’ namely ‘Don Runner’.  On mothers’ side she is a daughter to a hen from that other top loft in Oud-Turnhout namely Bart & Nance Van Oeckel. BE14-6049636 is a granddaughter to super breeder ‘Schone Kris’, a direct hen from Kris Cleirbaut out of 2007 who already made beautiful weather on the lofts in Oud-Turnhout in combination with the Van Oeckel strains. This is how he became ao. grandfather to ‘Lady Gaston Jr’ 1st National Chateauroux 4,631 pigeons (fastest against 24,783 pigeons) at Van Oeckel.
