Long distance racing pigeons in Hoevenen-Antwerp



Breeders "Arjan Beens" strain

"Golden Frank"
In October 2016 my brother Sammy De Backer told me that he would like to invest in my breeding loft. In a Piet de Vogel auction he bought a hen out of "De Cahors" (Best ZLU Fondspiegel ace pigeon 5y in 2016).

He needed a cock to pair to this hen, and started searching on the internet.
After a while, and some discussion, he decide to buy something out of "Golden Future" owned by Frank Zwiers and bred by Arjan Beens. We went to Breda, en bought "Golden Frank" a son to "Frankenstein" x "Golden Future".

In the late 2015, I was looking for something extra to bring some new blood into my loft next to the Jos Van Olmen, Piet de Vogel & Francois Struyf breeders. The Arjan Beens and Jelle Jellema pigeons got my attention. I've contacted Chris Beckers (Lelystad), and I bough a grandchild from "Zwart Goud" In 2016 I contacted Gerard Jochemsen and I bought some pure Arjan Beens pigeons, 2 grandchildren from "Olympic Miss Gijsje"

The "Olympic Miss Gijsje" strain is a golden line at the Arjan Beens loft and a.o. Olympiad pigon in 2013. "Mr Bergerac" & "Rika" were the basic breeders at the Beens loft, and you can't say it's for no reason....
