“The fastest birds in the world” was the statement made by Piet DeWeerd. Why is this? The Van Reet pigeons are terrors up to 350 miles. The Van Reets race to the front and give everything they have. Should the race be under 350 miles, into a headwind, the Van Reets break the race wide open. A tail wind brings record speeds.
How do the Van Reets do it? My theory is that they have very rapid orientation ability, coupled with an innate aggressiveness that never have I witnessed in any other family of pigeons. The Van Reets are so packed with vitality that they are continuously moving throughout the loft. The Van Reets are looking to fight or cause fear in any other pigeon that gets in their path. This characteristic is exhibited over the race course.
My Van Reets are all from the old line, inbred around the two champion brothers, “Daniel”, winner of 57 firsts and “Dikke Prins”, winner of 26 firsts. All individual wins and possibly the greatest sprint cocks that ever lived.
This old line is the only line in my Van Reet pigeons. They are not the crossed out pigeons that are being offered as pure Van Reets in todays market.
If your Van Reets have Meuleman, Grondelaers, Soonjens, Houben or any family crossed in after 1989 you are not dealing with the old line super potent birds.
Do not be fooled!
The old line Van Reets are prepotent for generations. They just win! Breed 10 generations and the Van Reets keep that possessiveness coupled with an aggressive crazed demeanor that allows them to win going away. Passion, Character and the Heart of a Beast! The Van Reets leave it all on the race course. Try these superb pigeons and see what it is like to “experience the thrill of pure speed”.
How many races do you race in a season 350 miles and under?
Cross them and win out through 600 miles!
