Veulemans – Perilleux from Vissenaken and their Platinum Pair

04 Jan 2022

The top colony Veulemans - Perilleux from the Flemish Brabant Piscesaken has once again had a very strong season. After their crowning in 2020 when they became General Provincial Champion KBDB, the 2021 season has been continued with highlights such as 2nd National Tulle 5,067p, 9th National Chateauroux 18,741p, 9th National Tulle 3,064p and 14th National Chateauroux 10,317p (also 3 x 1st Provincial again on top).

Almost all pigeons are related to their stock couple the “Platinum Pair”. A golden couple that are thinly spread but are so strong in the national races. In total there are already 3 National winners from the descendants and 13 x 1st National (z). Shining on the highest scaffold is their favorite thing to do.

The origin of the colony

Since 2008 they have joined forces and the 2 colonies of Andre & Toon Veulemans have merged with Jacques & Olav Perilleux. The fathers in particular are responsible for the care of the pigeons during the day and especially father Andre where all the racing lofts are located. Because Olav can no longer stay in the loft because of ''pigeon lung'', he mainly takes care of the administration and Toon & Andre take care of the care. A strong team that works hard together is needed to exchange ideas and develop a strategy.

This has certainly not done them any harm because since their amalgamation they have won 3 x 1st National with a.o. 1st Nat Bourges 24,019p, 1st Nat La Souterraine 9,580b and 1st Nat Gueret 2,429b. In addition, 1x 1st Semi – National and 13 x 1st National Zone.

Platinum Pair still ensures the great success.

The “Platinum Pair” consists of “279/99” which was obtained from Mathieu Roox in Veldwezelt (this was Nagels x Serré Laporte breed) coupled to “375/00” Nathalia who obtained Toon from Rudi Hendrikx in Maasmechelen. It remains something special that we are all looking for to discover such a couple, the descendants of these pigeons flew fantastic and luckily they did even better in the breeding loft so that the stock could be built around this family. A total of 13 children provided a provincial, interprovincial, national zone or national winner. Simply top class.

In the current breeding loft it will be rare that you will find a couple in which no family of this couple is present. The current toppers of the 2020 and 2021 season also all have these genes in them.

Of course with such a top couple you have to look for crosses with strange blood that they obtained from Albert Derwa, Ronny Menten, Maurice & Ivan Vandersmissen, Willem De Bruijn and Gaston Vandewouwer. There was also joint breeding with Lossignol – Kemerlinckx from which they are already reaping the first fruits in the national races, which still takes precedence here.

In recent years, pigeons have been added from Davy Tournelle, Ivo Renders, Motton – Coel, Jos Thone, Thijs Peters, Clement Matterne, Haezevoets & Zonen and they bought the toppers from Hervé and Erwin van Parijs that were bred from their pigeons.
