JANSSEN - ARENDONK
Without question the number 1 racing pigeon strain in the world is the strain developed by the Janssen Brothers from Arendonk, Belgium. It is a unique inbred family of pigeons that helped shape the pigeon sport, worldwide, after the Second World War. "De mannekes" (the men- a term of endearment) from Arendonk, after several years demonstrated their absolute dominance in their breeding ability. It was a closely guarded secret that anyone who could get hold of pigeons from De Schoolstraat within a short time joined the realm of champions, simply because "the Janssen pigeon", was of such a high quality, that they revolutionized the racing pigeon sport.
The Janssen Brothers became world famous, above all, through the performances obtained with their fantastic pigeons by the thousands of fanciers in Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany etc.
The B99-218 "Donkere Ernst", ringed by Louis Janssen and is an original "made by Janssen in Ardendonk." We have obtained this pigeon in the end of 2013 with 14 Years of Josef Ernst out of Hornbach. Yes, he was old but not yet worn. That same year he gave with the B99-6251091 a son. In 2014 we have 4 youngsters with the DV4858-07-1042. In 2015, 5 youngsters with the NL09-1562366. At the least he diet at 21.05.2015. He was paired with his own daughter (NL14-1922776) at that moment. At 22.05.2015 the NL14-1922776 became her 1st egg, and at the 24.05.2015 she became her 2nd egg. We did not taught that the eggs became youngsters. But it was a big wonder.
