We are always proud to receive messages from fanciers who race well with the descendants of our pigeons. The Vercammen pigeons are for instance very popular in Taiwan. The last years many Taiwanese Ace-pigeons were won with Vercammen blood in the pedigree. In the Hsinchu region the 1st Ace-pigeon of this year’s spring race was a 50% Vercammen pigeon. There were 4,000 pigeons competing for this title.
This pigeon was raced by the combination Mr. Zeng Guo Hung and Mr. Zeng Neng Huang. This pigeon was really outstanding. In the fifth and sixth race this pigeon won the 2° and 1° prize! The final race was the hardest one. The bird needed to fly 400km from which 300km were over the sea. Luckily most pigeons made it home from this extremely hard flight. As said before, this pigeon is a 50% Vercammen bird. The mother is an original Vercammen bird and bred from the “Barco”(B01-6387350) and “Elektro”(B08-6174630) lines.

Also the 9th and 13th Ace-pigeon were from the Vercammen breeding lines. They are 100% Vercammen birds, bred and raced by the top racer Mr. Green. His breeding loft is mainly based on the Hok Jos Vercammen pigeon. Mr. Green sent us the below mentioned e-mail to inform us about the good news.

"Hello Mr. Vercammen:
I wish to inform about the success your family of pigeons has in Taiwan.
This year’s spring edition was a very hard one, there are total six races and about 4000 pigeons in my club to participate in the competition.
In each race only about 30% to 50% on time to qualify for the next race, and this time only about 100 pigeons were left for the fifth race.
My pigeons win ace title 9th and 13th (5 races in roll with very changeable spring weather on the north sea in Taiwan), they are all from your pedigree, but they don’t come back on limited time in the sixth race . ( but they do come back after time end )
In sixth race the pigeons need to fly at least 300km over the sea , the maximum distance is 400m ,my club only 8 pigeons come back on limited time. The 1st ace pigeon also has 50% of the Vercammen pedigree. (in total six races)
