CO & PIET VERBREE - A Magnificent 2015!

Co and Piet Verbree

Putten is a village in the province of Gelderland, in the centre of the Netherlands. There, nature is still at its best, there is still a lot of agriculture, and there are many poultry farmers in the area. It is also a heavily forested area, and birds of prey are causing a lot of trouble for the pigeon fanciers. Gelderland still has a number of pigeon fanciers that can easily hold its own with the averages in the other Dutch provinces.

Pulle, Belgium – With a golden clocking at 17 hrs 26.31 (distance 535 kilometers, speed 1,285 meter/minute), the blue hen ‘Friendship’ (6058777-14) follows in the footsteps of loft mate ‘Cow Girl’ (1st National Bourges against 24,676 old pigeons in 2011). The ‘Friendship’ was basketed as first nominated of 16 hens (5 old ones and 11 yearlings), all of whom had been doing extremely well over the last weeks. The middle long-distance season has only just began, but Rik realizes memorable feats week after week:

COR DE HEIJDE - 1st National St.Vincent Sector 1 against 9672 birds

Cor de Heijde

Cor de Heijde has shown once again from the St.Vincent National why he is a big name at the very top of  the pigeon sport. And he has once again proven that the bloodline of his world famous pigeon “The Klamper” excels especially in tough conditions.
What these birds have won in recent decades not only in their own loft but for many fanciers elsewhere defies the imagination.
