Racing pigeons has been a passion of ours ever since we were very young. In 2013 we decided to join forces and start breeding pigeons together. Before that, we both already invested heavily in long distance pigeons. Naturally we get the most enjoyment by seeing our own birds arrive home early!
Peter had purchased youngsters from all of the top pigeons of Nico Volkens. Michel had, through a joint venture, already purchased the entire colony of Toon van Beek, who is a top fancier with a small accommodation and winner of the Fondspiegel competition.
The race results were therefore inevitable. Peter quickly performed really well on the ZLU. Michel, first in combination with Jan Castricum, had national top results, especially in the afternoon release. After Jan retired, we started racing together in 2013.
