Veulemans – Perilleux (Vissenaken) 1st and 2nd National Argenton 18.877 young birds

26 Aug 2023

In the classic from Argenton with the young pigeons we know this colony for gold and silver, namely Veulemans - Perilleux clocked 2 young pigeons 2 seconds apart and were the 2 fastest youngsters of 18,877 pigeons. It is of course still exciting when you clock 2 early pigeons and/or you remain in the national lead, but the relief was even greater when it was definitively confirmed. A unique achievement where, after several super long distance races, they can call it another successful season.

The colony here consists of 2 tandems, Andre and Toon Veulemans and Jacques and Olav Perilleux. These were 2 father and his combinations that used to play separately and who joined forces in 2008. A decision like this is not an easy one because you always have different views, but this colony can take a beating and has recently been helped by Albert Noe who, together with Toon, takes care of the daily care of the racing pigeons. But having different views is sometimes good and they all have one thing in common, trying to win is the message here week after week. For this merged colony it is the 4th National victory in their career, without mentioning all the top results of the top 10 and top 100 National and the multiple provincial victories.

Later start with the young pigeons

The young pigeons were not thrown into the ring here at the beginning of June, we have deliberately not done that for several years because those first flights are only good for losing pigeons and now with the heat in that period that was especially the case. We normally train our pigeons a lot before the first flight from Momignies, but because Olav had less time for this, we drove a little less than before. Then they flew Momigies, Soissons, Nanteuil, Sermaises and La Ferté twice.

The La Ferté in question was good in terms of results in terms of early pigeons, but in terms of fitness when the pigeons came home, it was far from ok. The message was to give in, rest and patch up. The pigeons got some rest because several days later more pigeons came home, so you don't immediately get the momentum back with such a group. The pigeons were treated against the respiratory tract because here too the problem of eye infections arose in particular among the young cocks. The following week they were kept at home and they flew the week before Argenton on Monday Momignies and on Wednesday Mettet. The pigeons literally came home very sharp and we felt that everything was going well. The young team sits in spacious lofts where all rounds are together and where the group is trained in one gang. They have spacious and airy lofts that are also darkened and illuminated as the days get shorter.

The pigeons are fed here with the Hoebrechts mixtures, we only have Training and Racing and at the beginning of the week it is 2/3 Training and 1/3 Racing and towards basketing it is then 1/3 Training and 2/3 Racing. As an extra, they receive a daily mixture of grit, tovo, P40, candy and Goldcorn Beyers.

On a medical level, we always go for a check-up with Vincent Schroeder. We usually cure the pigeons here before the racing season so that they are clean. We use a lot of butyric acid in the drinking water in the winter.
