Van de Walle Marc & Franky from Zwalm ( Superstars with long distance pigeons in races from 300-900km )

02 Jan 2022

For the first time there is an internet sale of this top colony Marc & Franky Van de Walle from the East Flemish Zwalm. Pure class what these 2 brothers conjure up and how they have been performing super for several years from middle distance to extreme long distance. Long distance pigeons that are not present at 200 or 300km, they do not like that. Prefer pigeons that do it everywhere and preferably fly TOP NATIONAL. They have the pigeons for it and the quality simply drips from it when you take the best pigeons through your hands here. They again performed very well in 2021 with several top finishes in the championships.

Stock building

We go back for a moment to the early 2000s where it appears that the 2 real basic breeders were born then. BE 02-4412829 “Bonte Wittekodde” and BE 00-4478783 “Zachte Imbrechts” were 2 half-brothers and come from “Roden Imbrechts”. This was a top pigeon with the old strain of Germain Imbrecht from Bornival who flew very well in the long distance in Zwalm. He won a.o. 4th National Brive 16,560 pigeons and became 4th Prov Ace Pigeon Long Distance KBDB. Here came the predilection for the heavier work and from this line soon came several toppers.

“Bonte Wittekodde” became the sire of 
“BE 09-4292770” Den Bordeaux, who shone in 2011 with a 1st National Bordeaux 4,921b. 
        => Father of super hen “Anneliesje” Mother of 6 x TOP 100 National             
        => Grandfather of “Virginie” 3 x TOP 20 National (z) + 2 x TOP 50 National 
“Bordeaux Express” who in turn became father of several toppers such as 
                    “De Libourne” – “Brive Express” – “Top Gun” – “Catalaantje” – “Maxi Express” 
“Blue White Obora” became mother of “Monti” and “Strong Ace 41”

So you see that the stock goes back to the same line, but that the crossing material succeeds very smoothly against several lines ( Rudi Desaer, Carlo Gyselbrecht or M & G Pollin ).

How many toppers are there present here

In the breeding loft and racing loft there are several toppers who have excelled in racing or breeding several times. But usually one thing is connected to the other and the Van de Walle type is one of the tough ones who can shine several times and is a pigeon of medium size with soft plumes, good muscles and a strong lock.

“De Libourne” 4 x TOP 50 National, 1st World Best Long Distance Pigeon KBDB 2019, 1st National Ace Pigeon Long Distance 2019 (4 KBDB flights) and 3rd National Ace Pigeon Long Distance KBDB in 2019. 
“Bordeaux” 1st National Bordeaux 4,921 pigeons “Strong Ace” 5th National Ace Pigeon Extreme Long Distance KBDB 2016
“Topgun” 4 x TOP 70 National “Monti” 4 x TOP 105 National and 10th National Ace Pigeon Extreme Long Distance KBDB 2020
“Devils 75” 6  x 1st and 4 x TOP 100 National Extreme Middle Distance“Virginie” 3 x TOP 20 National (z) + 2 x TOP 50 National 
“Catalan” 2 x TOP 101 National “Lady Perpignan” 36 + 74 National Perpignan + 99 National Pau 
“Red King” 3 x TOP 55 National and 7th National Ace Pigeon Long Distance KBDB 2021
“Blue Ace 039” 4 x TOP 75 National and 11th National Ace Pigeon Long Distance KBDB

…. We limit the list to the very best and we probably forget a lot…
