I am making final arrangements for a shipment to Qatar

  Jan de Wijs     19/01/2018     Comments (0)

It was Khaled Al Sualiti that was my first client in Qatar, I remember as yesterday but its already 5 years ago since he visited me and asked me to arrange loft visits at some of the most famous fanciers in Holland. I remember we visited Gerard Koopman, Ad Schaerleackens, Herman Beverdam, Marcel Sangers and a few more….   It was a great week and I could not image what his visit would do for me. Not much later I received a call from a representative from the Qatar government. It was Mister Alkuwari who came over with a special request. He need a great batch of 100% white racers to fill the legendary pigeons towers in Katara, Qatar.   Pigeon Towers are a wonderful example of traditional Islamic architecture and ingenuity. They were designed to collect pigeon droppings, which was used as a fertilizer for farming. A...

Coming soon 10 pure bred Jelle Jellema, Nijverdal pigeons

  Jan de Wijs     15/01/2018     Comments (0)

Jelle Jellema looks back on yet another very successful season. He adds another 2nd national prize from Barcelona to his palmares this year, after having already won a 1st and 3rd International Barcelona in 20014 and a 3rd National Barcelona in 2016.    Jelle has been one of the leading long distance players around the globe for several decades. Trying to improve upon his results of the year before is particularly difficult for him and yet he has done it again this season. Some of his most notable results over the years are without doubt his 1st and 3rd International Barcelona, a gold medal in the Budapest Olympiad with Romee and another top result from Barcelona (2nd National) this very season. Add to that his numerous top results at national and international level in other races over the years, including:  ...

Stop buying pigeons now!

  Jan de Wijs     12/01/2018     Comments (0)

I say it to my clients all the time, make a plan! Don't buy anything you like or see, but buy specific. Buy birds able to get your closer to your goals! Not the birds that the big sellers and auction sites do want you to believe to be the best!   I see it very often, it sometimes even looks like that some of my clients want to have a birds in every shipment. They think I like that but deep in my hart I am not really happy about it. Why? Well they don't have a plan! I like happy customers for tor now and in the future, buying birds without a plan will get them nowhere.    They buy because of buying and are hoping for a lot of luck creating that one golden pair. My advice... Stop directly with buying pigeons from all kind of sources. Start buying from one loft and add specific birds or strains to get closer to...
