The results at the provincial level have also already been received in the area of ​​1+2 and this is 2 x 2nd and 1 x 3rd. The ace pigeons are not yet known, so we will have to wait a while for this. There are several top performers from last year who have now shown their best again, including “Mister V”, Dominique Velghe's class talent. He became 4th national ace pigeon speed yearlings KBDB in 2022 and now he shined again with several top results and then you have the 2 brothers “Xian” and “Xeno” who performed top together as a young pigeon and yearling. For Juan and Maurice, this season has once again confirmed their top quality in the racing lofts. The other national ace pigeons come from their own breeding loft and come from their best lines, the basis is there and they are looking forward to the future.

Only with widowers

The game with old and yearling pigeons is only played here with widowers, the best young hens are referred to the breeding loft. During the winter period the racing pigeons are not coupled, only this season the better pigeons have been coupled to lay the eggs among nursing couples and that is it.

Our old pigeons normally train once a day, just like our young pigeons. The widowers always go outside first in the morning and then it is the turn of the young pigeons. When the young pigeons sit on the sliding door, it is first the cocks and then the hens that come outside.

We like to ride with our pigeons, departure and certainly speed is very important. This also saves us time in terms of working hours in a day, so that Juan always gets up early in the summer and takes away all the pigeons so that they can fly 40 to 45 km. The pigeons are released half an hour apart and the young pigeons meet briefly when they return home, but the old pigeons do not do this. When basketing, they either receive the dish briefly or their hen for 5 to 15 minutes.

When they return home, their partner is waiting for them and they are allowed to stay together for one hour at first, which then becomes longer and longer. It is slightly different for the young pigeons, they come together for 1 hour to 1.5 hours before the flight and when they return home they stay together until the evening.
