Over the last year we did get many inquiries from Sri Lanka.

More and more fanciers from all over the globe find their way to my website for high quality, payable racing pigeons. At I sell QUALITY pigeons for workingman prices.

  Jan de Wijs     16/04/2018     Comments (0)

The 74 hens from the Marathon team left Friday night to Menen, a race of 158 KM to racing loft in Den Hoorn. A total of 371 were brought together by 12 fanciers in our club “De Reisduif” in Naaldwijk. Saturday 11:40 the birds did start their journey home and it was Koos Overkleeft (again, he also won last week) that won this race. The first pigeon at our loft arrived exactly 10 minutes after the one from Koos which resulted in 6th Place to start. 34 of our hens arrived in the first 25% of the pigeons so won a prize and are at the results list. 73 of the hens arrived on the same day and the last one Sunday morning early so all hen are in the loft again waiting for the next race...   After they arrived home I showed the cocks to them, as I told you last week I never disappoint a pigeon not even after a...

I am full time into the pigeon business for over 20 years now but every time I sell a pigeon it still feel special. I still do realize every day that buying an unseen pigeon on-line is a matter of great trust. I sold thousands of pigeons in those 20 years, cheap ones, expensive ones, to all corners of the world. From a starter in India to the royal family in the United Arab emirates and all in between.   In that prospective today is no different as any other... Also today I sold a few pigeons but one is very special. Why? Because the buyer of this pigeons trusted me for the full 100% concerning the quality of this pigeon. I am talking about Martyn Rudd from the United Kingdom. Martyn and I go back a long time, I am not 100% sure but it must be over 10 years ago he bought his first pigeon from me and yesterday he told me that...
