Mr. Zhu (China)

Highest amount of money ever won by a bird

One of the most impressive  references with a Hok Jos Vercammen pigeon in 2014 can be found at the loft of Mr. Zhu. He is one of the most famous pigeon racers in China. He is one of the key members of the Pioneer Loft in Beijing. This ‘VIP’ club is very well known because the best racers of China have a racing loft in this area.  According to our information this bird has won the most prize money a bird has ever won in history! Just to be clear: all this money is for Mr. Zhu and not for us. 

What did the bird CN2014-04688 won exactly for Mr. Zhu?

A Bentley car
A Mercedes G500 car
A Mercedes GL400 car
A lot of money

If you sum this up, you will come to an amount that has never been equalled before! 

How did the pigeon won this amount? At the Pioneer Loft the whole system is built around the seek for the most consistent pigeons … the Ace-birds. In a relatively short period they organise different races. Four of them are +500km flights. The intensive racing program makes it very difficult for the birds. Only the strongest birds will prevail. The checkered hen CN2014-04688 was one of the superstars this year. That’s why she has won such an amount of money.

What is the origin of this pigeon? The mother of this bird is a 100% Hok Jos Vercammen pigeon. Her ringnumber is B12-6196238. As a youngster she won 1° Dourdan (366km) 2,489 pigeons in Union Antwerpen. B12-6196238 is a daughter to our top hen “Elodie”(B11-6282062) who won a.o. 1° S.-national Blois (462km) 1,108 pigeons. If you take a closer look to the pedigree of B12-6196238, you’ll notice that the “Barco”(B01-6387350) line is present twice! “Elodie” is a granddaughter to “Beckham”(B01-6387174). The mother to “Elodie” is a half-sister to “Elektro”(B08-6174630).

We had the honour to hold the checkered hen CN2014-04688 and we must say that she is an amazing pigeon! Impressive muscles, a strong wing, silky feathers … she has got it all! She is a real lookalike of her mother B12-6196238 and grandmother “Elodie”(B11-6282062).

Mr. Zhu also had the 35th Ace-pigeon at the Pioneer loft, the dark checkered pigeon CN2014-04701. This bird is a grandchild to our fantastic breeder “Elektro”(B08-6174630).

Of course Mr. Zhu was delighted with the introduction of the Hok Jos Vercammen pigeons at his loft. Not only for the money that he has won, but also because the success followed only a few months after he put the Vercammen birds on the breeding loft. According to Mr. Zhu this is ‘very rare’.
