To conclude this article we want to put the attention to the great comeback of our blue hen “Maété”(BE21-6138246). She was our best young bird in the season 2021. She was only raced four times and managed to be amongst the national KBDB Ace-pigeon on the middle distance. She won a very tough (headwinds and foggy weather) 1° Provincial Melun race against more than 6,000 pigeons. “Maété”(BE21-6138246) was ready to shine in the season 2022 too. But then she returned a day later from a short distance race in the month of April. When we went to the loft we saw that she was completely swollen. Her crop was full of air and underneath her skin on the chest bone you could feel the air too. Probably she had a crash during the race which caused a small opening in her crop.  We pushed the air out of the crop daily during ten days.  We gave her some rest to completely recover. This weekend it was finally time again for “Maété”(BE21-6138246) to make her comeback on the middle distance. Immediately she won the 1° Melun (310km) against 231 birds! It was not the biggest win in our pigeon career, but we were over the moon with this win! One of our most talented pigeons is back in the race!

“Maété”(BE21-6138246) won a.o. :
1° fast. Provincial Melun (310km) 6,017 p.
1° Provincial Melun (310km) 5,703 p.
1° Melun (310km) 231 p. (other race)
3° Melun (310km) 626 p.
4° Melun (310km) 1,202 p. (after 3 lofmates) (other race)
19° Auxerre (380km) 824 p.
28° Sermaises (362km) 1,684 p.
