Super Vercammen breeding hen at the loft of Erik Limbourg

At the end of 2020 famous Belgian superstar Erik Limbourg held a total auction. One of the most remarkable breeders in his auction was the blue hen “Blue Jan”(BE12-6326976). Some insiders consider her even as Limbourg’s best breeding hen of the last years. 

“Blue Jan”(BE12-6326976) is born at our breeding loft in Vremde. She is the result of a co-breeding project of our pigeon “Thunderbolt”(BE08-6144141) with the blue hen “Dikke Blauwe”(BE05-6433118) from our friend Jan Verbergt.

Super breeding hen “Blue Jan”(BE12-6326976) was born at our breeding loft

“Thunderbolt”(B08-6144141) is closely related to our basic breeders “Mambo”(B08-6144041) and “Beckham”(B01-6387174). “Thunderbolt”(B08-6144141) flew as a young bird the 1° prize on La Souterraine (593km) with strong side winds and a national top position against all odds. Later on he became a very valuable breeder at our breeding loft.  He bred several top performing children, first prize winners and national top 100 winners. He also became grandfather to “Zorro”(BE15-6026003), 3rd National Ace-pigeon KBDB Middle Distance Young birds.
