Proudly we announce that the pigeons we sold the last months in Pakistan departed as planned today. They will arrive in Islamabad Friday and our broker over there will contact all buyers to make arrangements for the further delivery.   We would like to thank all buyers for their great trust.

Call / WhatsApp me at 0031610746683 for reservations and prices...   My shipments are open for pigeons from third parties. Yes you read well... I am not like many others in the business.

Game on... St. Vincent 2018, 1018 KM to our loft.

  Jan de Wijs     14/06/2018     Comments (0)

After months of preparation 10 of our pigeons left to St. Vincent in France. A race of 1018 KM to our loft in Den Hoorn. When I look at the weather fore casts now, it looks like the birds will have tail wind. The wind will blow from the West the first few hundred kilometer and from there it will be South West, at least that's what the say now.   Temperature in France will be approx 22 Celsius at the hottest moment of the day. All together it looks like it will not be a very hard one.   If all goes as planned the pigeons will be liberated Friday June 15 at approx 13:00. We have 10 pigeons in this race. 6 on the natural system 1 widowhood cock and 3 widowhood hens...   I will keep you all posted about our results! For good and for bad.... Dammed I hate those guys only screaming of the rooftops when they win or...

Last Sunday we raced Pont St. Maxence (325 KM), the original race should have been from Melun (425 KM) but the weather conditions on Saturday were not good enough to liberate them so they postponed till Sunday and came 100 KM closer to home. The pigeons were liberated at 8:30 AM with a variable wind but mostly from the South. In our club “De Reisduif” Henk Sterrenberg won at 1360 meters per minute.   The offical results can be found here....    As you know we always tell you our results, we are not as so many other only screaming of the rooftops if they win, no we show what we do every week.
