A NEW ERA - A NEW CONCEPT
In December 1954, we started with the construction of the Natural Breeding Station “The Golden Rings”. And in 1955, the lofts were populated with 3,500 pigeons purchased from the most famous Belgian pigeon-fanciers.
The Breeding Station exists thus 60 years. On the
occasion of this anniversary, the direction of the Natural Breeding Station decided to start with a new project:
"Elite of Natural".
"Elite of Natural" is a new "pigeon range" that we offer in addition to the pigeons of the Natural Breeding Station, at a higher price. During the past year we have therefore invested heavily in special lofts for the "Elite"-pigeons, as well as in pigeons that populate these lofts.
Special performance pigeons were already purchased in a first stage, such as "Olympic Belgian", 2nd Olympic pigeon marathon for the NetherCountrys and fifth internationally in Nitra, and recently the "Narbonne", 9th prize international Narbonne 12,528 pigeons. We also bought family, namely children, brothers, sisters, etc. from national ace-pigeons for the "Elite of Natural".
In addition, we made a selection of some strains especially for the "Elite of Natural". Pigeons from Gaston Van de Wouwer, Gebr. Janssen and recently Etienne Meirlaen were purchased, while other strains will be added.
We wish you lots of fun looking at our new website !
During the following weeks, we will edit on this website - in English language - a series of articles which we published in a German book last year. This book was a great success on the German exhibitions in Kassel and Dortmund and therefore we decided to publish these articles also in English on our website. You can read already the first article, while we are translating the other articles now. On regular basis they will be publish on this website. Enjoy reading!
