Verstraeten – Vierendeels from Zonhoven have a family of winners

30 Oct 2023

Internet auction of the Verstraeten – Vierendeels colony from Zonhoven in Limburg are currently underway. This colony is not a large colony, a total of only 33 pigeons are sold here. The reason for this sale is Gustaaf Verstraeten's health problems and this brings a definitive end to this tandem.

This top sale includes several proven pigeons that have won fantastic prizes despite strong competition in the “Midden Limburg” combination. Especially the leading duo “Rambo” and “Remco” were the two standard bearers of this colony. The young pigeon season was less important for them anyway because the end was in sight, but their best young pigeon “Staafke” still won a nice victory in “Midden Limburg” against more than 3,000 young pigeons.

Some fantastic titles and results in Central Limburg, Provincial and National areas.

The colony started here with some pigeons from the Wim De Troy colony, both from 2016. They both grew into real top breeders here and the stock was created around these pigeons. The crossing with stock father “BE 13-5017996” Polle (breed Guido Severeyns x Rudy Quintens) against the pigeons of Wim De Troy was a bull's eye. The founding father is now 10 years old but still fertilizes perfectly. After that, the introduction of a top hen from Etienne Stassen was a bull's eye and she became the mother of top racer “Rambo”.
