PIGEON FRIENDS

sharing a hobby in an

old-fashioned way

 

It is Saturday, October 22, 2016, the day we have been loo­king for­ward to and was al­rea­dy mar­ked for months on our ca­len­dar as “The pi­geon friends day”. We share our love for ge­ne­ral­ly more diffi­cult to breed pigeons and rare colours.

FORM YOUR BREEDING PENS NOW!

 

It is early February and it is really high time you put to­ge­ther the bree­ding pens, if you do not want to be too late for the shows of the new season. For the ban­tams you may wait a little, but for the large fowl you must get star­ted as soon as pos­si­ble. Ac­tual­ly, you should have al­rea­dy done this ...

FELÉGYHAZA TUMBLER

 

The Felégyhaza Tumbler is a breed that is be­co­ming in­crea­sing­ly po­pu­lar in the Ne­ther­lands. By now we have a­bout 20 ad­mi­rers and about 10 serious bree­ders of this pigeon in the Ne­ther­lands. Un­for­tu­na­te­ly, the Fe­légy­haza is not often seen at shows.

THE LIMOUSIN CHICKENS

 

We have found another special French breed, the Poule de Li­mou­si­nes, al­so cal­led Coq de pê­che. At first glan­ce an or­di­na­ry land fowl, com­pact and stur­dy. How­ever, if we look clo­ser at the roos­ter, the thin, long and a­bun­dant or­na­men­tal fea­thers im­me­diately catch the eye.

An international

Owl Pigeon festival

in Belgium

 

The president of the European Frill Club was very plea­sed with this large num­ber of Owl pi­geons in 21 breeds and was right­ly proud that 13 coun­tries had par­ti­ci­pa­ted in the show. As an in­di­ca­tion of the in­ter­na­tio­nal po­pu­la­rity and tra­di­tion of the Owl pi­geons, at the grand awards cere­mony and ban­quet on the Sa­tur­day it was said that fan­ciers from 17 coun­tries par­ti­ci­pa­ted in or visi­ted the show.

THE SCANDAROON

as a source of inspiration

 

The Scandaroon in Fine Arts. The man grip­ped, so grip­ped by its beau­ty, that man can­not re­sist to cap­ture it, im­mor­ta­lize, not let slip away the vi­sion and for­ever lose it ; ur­ging him to take a pen, paint-brush, pencil, clay....

CONCERNING POULTRY

interactions of chickens

with other species

 

Chickens can be kept with some ani­mals but not others. If you are con­si­de­ring kee­ping rab­bits, guinea fowl, tur­keys, emus, sheep, goats, cows, or pigs with your chic­kens, the in­for­ma­tion that fol­lows will help you make your de­ci­sion.

CARNEAU-CLUB Français

 

The Carneau is part of the French heri­tage and over the years they ma­na­ged to keep the bo­dy type al­most con­stant at a weight between 600 and 675 grams, and at the same time have been able to main­tain a beau­tiful co­lour in this uti­lity pigeon, al­though the mar­king of ro­set­tes and white lower back re­mains a chal­lenge.

BREEDING LACED AND

PARTRIDGE WYANDOTTES

 

As long as Black laced silver Wyan­dot­tes are bred, it is al­rea­dy clear that one can ac­tual­ly breed the best re­sults with dou­ble-ma­ting. This is be­cause there are some ge­ne­tic con­tra­dic­tions in the mar­king of Sil­ver Wyan­dotte roos­ters and hens, a fact which makes it al­most im­pos­sible to breed them from one bree­ding pen.

NEW COLOURATIONS AND

BREEDS AT THE VDT-SHOW

2016

 

Despite the problems of the outbreak of bird flu, the VDT show in Erfurt was an out­stan­ding ex­hi­bi­tion. The ex­hi­bi­tors who ap­plied the stan­dar­di­za­tion of their spe­ci­fic co­loura­tion or breed in Ger­ma­ny have per­haps even pushed their thumbs stron­ger than others. 23 collec­tions were an­noun­ced.
