The Lenaers Regio colony from Vliermaal in Limburg is a new colony that we are going to introduce to you for the first time. The last 2 seasons he especially excelled in all races from speed to middle distance and even further, whoever can win 24 x 1st Semi - Provincial against several specialists has good papers. This is also the case for Rigo who can show fantastic pigeons and results with a strong family.

Especially the pigeons have impressed me, the quality is very good! Soft plumes, strong muscles and a pigeon in one whole are the main characteristics of Rigo are toppers, in addition, the smart head that stands on it ensures great successes in the past 2 years.

We have explained the family of Rigo's pigeons a bit on a family tree. Everything starts with the next pigeon “BE 13-5089485” Super 485, this is a 100% Leo Heremans – August Jansen cock and is a grandson of “Olympiade 003”. The world-famous line that has already ensured so many successes and so here again. What is also important about this breeder is that the bloodline of these pigeons crosses fantastically on several pigeons that are coupled against this. For example, the crossing with several pigeons from Frank Neven is a bull's eye in both lofts and the pigeons from Frans and Gert Rondags are good partners for the line of "Super 485". It will therefore be no coincidence that these pigeons also do fantastically well with Frank and Gert themselves, you can read about this in the references further on in this article.

At the moment there is a top auction of barely 7 pigeons via These are all proven pigeons, almost all of which have won a 1st prize or several 1st prizes. All these pigeons are children or grandchildren of "Super 485". A top family generation after generation….
