Today our friend and doctor Dierenartsenpraktijk J. van der Sluis Hans payed us a visit to have a look at our pigeons together with loft manager Piet Schrijvers. Good news; all pigeons are healthy and looking well. We always do several checks during the year to insure a strong and healthy pigeon colony at Aaldering Pigeons.

Today we installed six new Hermes big breeding boxes. Thanks to Dietmar Hermes.

In the large breeding box, only two boxes are arranged one above the other. This results in a much more comfortable box height. The cabinet depth is also five centimeters larger for these boxes. As a result, thebreeding couples can also be fixed temporarily, thus a cross fertilization can be excluded.With these breeding boxes a high-quality feeding trough with compartmentation and a drinking trough with wood mounting are included.

We are proud to announce that Aaldering Pigeons will appear in the first edition of the GPS-Champions magazine, created by GPS-Auctions. This exclusive magazine will be distributed worldwide in Chinese and English and with a total of 25.000 copies!

Het in 2014 gevormde team Aaldering Pigeons heeft als doel om zo snel mogelijk tot de top van de Nederlandse duivensport te behoren. Met een glansrijke zege op Vervins tegen 4.179 duiven bevestigt Aaldering Pigeons zijn status als nieuwe ster aan het Nederlandse firmament.

 


Team Aaldering Pigeons (links Piet Schrijvers en rechts Nick Aaldering)

 

Team Aaldering Pigeons

Team Aaldering Pigeons bestaat sinds het jaar 2014 en wordt gevormd door Nick Aaldering en soigneur Piet Schrijvers. Nick weet wat het is om een doel voor ogen te hebben en daar met een goede visie en gericht beleid naartoe te werken. Als directeur van Europa’s grootste classic car-dealer The Gallery in Brummen kan hij veel parallellen met de duivensport trekken. Klassieke auto’s zijn populair onder een groep liefhebbers die een hart hebben voor hun product. Het is de emotie en het gevoel die in deze branche doorslaggevend zijn. Duivensporters hebben de liefde voor een duif. Daarnaast stellen ze een doel voor zichzelf. In Nicks geval was dat doel vanaf het begin van Aaldering Pigeons in 2014 duidelijk: binnen afzienbare tijd tot de top van de Nederlandse duivensport willen behoren. Ambitieus, maar juist dat hoge ambitieniveau loopt als een rode draad door Nicks leven. Het was zijn lang gekoesterde wens om de duivensport te beoefenen op een semiprofessioneel niveau.

Omdat Nicks baan intensief en tijdrovend is, wordt hij in de duivensport bijgestaan door Piet Schrijvers. Piet heeft zijn sporen al ruimschoots verdiend in de duivensport. Piet kende grote successen in Wageningen voordat hij in de jaren 90 Team Eijerkamp kwam versterken en met hen vele successen vierde. NPO-overwinningen, Olympiadeduiven en nationale asduiftitels werden gewonnen onder de bezielende leiding van Piet. Na Piets vertrek bij Eijerkamp zocht hij een nieuwe uitdaging en die vond hij bij Nick Aaldering. Nicks bevlogenheid en ambitie in combinatie met Piets vakmanschap zorgden ervoor dat er in ‘no time’ aansprekende resultaten werden neergezet.

De visie van Nick is dat je zelf de juiste voorwaarden moet scheppen om op een hoog niveau de duivensport te kunnen beoefenen, zijnde: zorgen voor een topaccommodatie, goede duiven en een goede begeleiding. Zorg voor goed kweekmateriaal van bewezen lijnen en kweek daar veel uit. Door een strenge selectie van de duiven op prestaties en gezondheid smeden Nick en Piet een ploeg duiven waarmee hun doel bereikt moet kunnen worden. Daarnaast vinden ze het heel belangrijk om veel tijd te besteden aan de duiven. Je moet je duiven goed leren kennen, op de juiste manier trainen en weten wanneer bij te sturen. Dat ze daarmee al op de goede weg zijn, bewijzen de prestaties van de afgelopen jaren.

 

Overwinning Vervins

Een mooie prestatie is de overwinning van het afgelopen weekend op de vlucht vanuit Vervins. Hun duif NL16-1258606 was 4.181 duiven in Afdeling 8 Zuid 4 te snel af. Maar ook hun totaalprestatie mocht er zeker zijn: 1-10-73-96-102-110-111-165-262-351-353-386-etc. (44/23). De winnende duif, Red Mustang 606, is een bijzonder temperamentvolle duif, een echt ‘wringer’ in de hand, zeer trouw aan zijn bak en gericht op de melker. “De duif was goed in de voorbereiding naar de vlucht toe”, aldus Nick. “Het is een duif die je echt ziet groeien in vorm en prestaties gedurende het seizoen.” Hij is gekweekt uit de beste lijnen van de Belgische liefhebber Frans Verlinden met een vleugje Hasendonckx. Bestudeer hier de stamboom van de Red Mustang 606 uitvoerig.

 

Het duivenbestand

Het huidige duivenbestand kreeg vorm met de aankoop van rechtstreekse duiven bij, volgens Nick en Piet, de beste Nederlandse spelers van het moderne tijdperk: Gerard Koopman en Gerard & Bas Verkerk. Bij Gerard Koopman werden kinderen gekocht uit zijn allerbeste duiven, waaronder:

Bij Verkerk werd zeer gericht geïnvesteerd in kinderen van:

Behalve bij de genoemde Nederlandse toppers werd ook flink geïnvesteerd in duiven van de Belgische topper Stefaan Lambrechts. Aaldering Pigeons baarde opzien door de laatste jaren de meest complete Lincia-collectie op hun kweekhokken te krijgen, natuurlijk op Stefaan Lambrechts zelf na. Nick was enorm onder de indruk van de prestaties die Lincia tot 1e Nationale Asduif Kleine Halve Fond KBDB 2015 kroonden, en dat met het beste coëfficiënt in de geschiedenis van de Belgische duivensport! Bij zijn eerste bezoek aan Stefaan was er direct een klik tussen beide mannen en Nick en Piet zagen in de Lincia-lijnen de ontbrekende schakel voor hun kweekkolonie. In korte tijd verhuisden diverse broers, zussen en kinderen van Lincia naar de Aaldering-kweekhokken. Ook een zoon Blauwe Gert x Van Loock Duivin (stamkoppel Lambrechts) en een zus van Steffie, winnaar 1e Quiévrain tegen 2.617 duiven, 2e Asse-Zellik tegen 2.683 duiven en 3e Quiévrain tegen 7.221 duiven verhuisden naar Nederland. De eerste kinderen van die pareltjes zitten inmiddels op het jongeduivenhok en zullen vanaf juli stevig aan de tand worden gevoeld. Nick is er volledig van overtuigd dat die duiven hem een extra duwtje richting de hoogste trede zullen geven! Nick denkt dat deze duiven ook gerust de langere midfond en dagfond aankunnen. Lambrechts x Verkerk x Koopman, dat zal het firmament van de kolonie Aaldering Pigeons zijn.

 


Stefaan Lambrechts en Nick Aaldering

 

Lincia BE15-6108145

Die geweldige duif heeft het hart gestolen van Nick en Piet. Met een ongelofelijk coëfficiënt van 0,483 haalde Lincia de titel van 1e Nationale Asduif binnen. Nooit in de geschiedenis van de nationale kampioenschappen deed een jonge duif het op de kleine halve fond beter. Het zou wel eens heel lang kunnen duren vooraleer dat record verbroken wordt. Zij stelde op de vluchten waar zij aan deelnam dan ook een ongekend meesterschap tentoon. Zie hier haar ongelofelijke prestaties:

Souppes   Union    1.243 d.  1
Zone Oost            507 d.  1
Souppes   Union    2.391 d.  2

Mooie toekomst

Met een glansrijke zege op Vervins tegen 4.179 duiven bevestigt Aaldering Pigeons haar status als nieuwe ster aan het Nederlandse firmament. De snelle successen zijn mede het gevolg van investeringen in het beste van Gerard Koopman, Gerard en Bas Verkerk en meest recent Stefaan Lambrechts. Met de gedrevenheid en passie van zowel Nick als Piet daaraan toegevoegd is het slechts een kwestie van tijd voordat we Aaldering Pigeons met regelmaat in de top van de duivensport aantreffen.

expoWe had a great and very successful show at the China Racing Pigeon Expo in Langfang. The trip that was very good organized and gave us a great inside of the huge Chinese market. At Langfang we made our first contacts with some nice Chinese fanciers. Although we heard that selling pigeons on the Langfang show is not easy we sold all of our pigeons. We will definetly participate again next year.

 

aaldering-bookAaldering Pigeons is proud to be presented in the new edition of the PIPA Collectors Edition IV. This unique book is where the International pigeon world is looking forward to. In a short period the exclusive book made a name for itself; all over the world. With a circulation of 20,000 copies it is the best way to promote your pigeons and loft to fanciers all over the world. The Chinese version has already been given away for free at the Langfang Pigeon Expo in China this November.

 

If you want a free copy just visit one of the following International pigeon shows: Lanzhou (China, November 2016). The Olympiad (Belgium, January 2017). Fugare (Belgium, February 2017). International Spring exchange (Netherlands, March 2017). Soon you will also be available to order it online on www.pipacollectorsedition.nl

unnamed-2On the 19th and 20th of November 2016 Aaldering Pigeons will join the Pipa team by attending on the Langfang Pigeon Exhibition in China. With a floor space of about 12,000 square meters the Langfang Exhibition is the biggest in the world. With this trip of international pigeon fanciers Pipa aims to close the gap between the Chinese and European fanciers and to offer them the chance to exchange ideas with each other. The Aaldering Pigeons team will be present at booth 135 where we have approximately 15 special selected pigeons from the best international bloodlines available for sale.

 

Despite the fact that we will sell pigeons in Langfang, the focus of the trip will be more about making our first contacts with the Chinese fanciers in person than selling our pigeons. We think that by investing in this trip it can give us a lot of future opportunities. After all the pigeon sport in China is still growing rapidly and the interest for top class racing pigeons from Europe is tremendous. So there are huge chances for every pigeon fancier. In this respect we think that the trip will be very successful for us.

 

For those who will visit the Langfang Pigeon Exhibition we look forward to meeting you personally in our booth at number 135.

news-tumb-aaldering-champion-resultsFor us the 2016 season was already a great success because we could see that our investment in some great bloodlines where already visible. But today our season was crowned with the Superfondclub Championship young birds GOU 2016!!

 

Our youngsters of the Gerard koopman and Frans Rutten bloodlines showed their superb quality. This due to the hard work of loft manager and friend Piet Schrijvers who made this Championship possible. We already have a good feeling for the next season, but this championship gave our hopes an even greater boost! We also would like thanks the Vanrobaeys for supplying our pigeons with top quality pigeon food that surely made a great impact on the total performance of our loft.

news-tumb-team-aaldering-pigeonsWith the speed of light Aaldering Pigeons storms the top of the highest mountains in pigeon racing. The base bloodlines are amongst the best in the world. A truly unique collection of original Koopman breeders … a select team of original Lambrechts birds … gold nuggets original from Pieter Veenstra, Bas Verkerk … and 2 children of Europa Cup topper ‘Gigi’ of Alwin Petrie; in pigeon sport there’s nothing better. Nick Aaldering transforms the golden genes of these breeders into a winning team of pigeons.

 

Nick Aaldering and loft manager Piet Schrijvers rushed for the top after their entree in sport in 2014. A goal achieved sooner than anyone could have expected; 2016 was the year of the definite breakthrough with repeating series of top positions including a/o 3 massive wins against renowned champions like the Eijerkamp family, Marcel Sangers, Alwin Petrie, etc. The main ingredient for this successful entrance in pigeon sport is a colony of exceptional breeders. Aaldering Pigeons owns one of the strongest modern Koopman breeding colonies … and brought in the best from Veenstra, Lambrechts, Verkerk, Rutten and Petrie to cross to these top value breeders. No wonder top performances came so quickly for the new-born Dutch super champion.

news-tumb-bad-weatherLast Sunday we had a pretty difficult/hard race from “Nanteuil Le Handouin”. Scheduled to race on Saturday but due the bad weather conditions the race was on Sunday.

7th from 569 in our region
18th overall of 2319 pigeons. We hope for better weather conditions for the coming race..

aaldering-pigeons-inbred-Lincia-stefaan-lambrechtsaaldering-pigeons-brother-Lincia-stefaan-lambrechtsToday was the big day, I went to my friend Stefaan Lambrechts to collect my pigeons. I bought several pigeons at the Pipa auction. Three beautiful cocks and three hens’s with great pedigree.

The 510 cock Blauwe Gert x Van Loock duivin ( Base pair)
The 542 cock brother Lincia ” (full brother to the legend Lincia)
The 012 cock Inbred Lincia ( Lincia X her grand father)

The 745 hen (Brother goede rode X de 40000 v. Den Bulck) X (Blauwe Gert X van Loock hen)
The 258 (New Rossi x eenoogske from Leo Heremans) X ( Blauwe Gert X van Loock hen)
The 088 ” Steffie” father Steffie X mother Steffie. Both parents great racing results.

 

I think a great addition for our breeding loft, let’s hope for some nice youngsters.

Stefaan, thank you for your hospitality and Nikolaas Gyselbrecht from Pipa Elite Center, for the opportunity to acquire these fantastic pigeons.

11140337_622324514536669_3676508987592899738_n-300x213During the 2014 season, Nick and Piet had regular contacts with the Belgian craftsman Frans Verlinden. The youngsters that they had bought at his loft, excelled in health and during the flights they proved capable of much. For this reason, we already descended to Belgium during the season, to see the birds of the real Quievrain and Noyon player … he housed a group of pigeons whose class was immediately visible.

 

A colony however where no records were kept. When some results were found it turned out that Nick and Piet had found a ‘silent champion’. He had not that many pigeons, but still won top prizes. Immediately eight breeding pairs moved back to Brummen to continue the strain that produced the talented youngster. Not much later the characteristic Belgian whose deteriorating health was convinced of selling his entire colony to Nick. All breeding and racing pigeons moved to Brummen.

 

The colony of Frans Verlinden had a warm welcome in Brummen. After a selection 24 pigeons remained, which had to form 12 breeding pairs. For this, Frans Verlinden was called in; because who knows his birds better than the one that lived for them? “They feel better than they ever did with me,” he complimented Nick and Piet. 12 beautiful couples were made to breed beautiful youngsters. Youngsters that should be the prelude to the 2015 season and the next step in a truly promising career.

11894578_622643744504746_3543679570923983412_oIn the winter of 2014/2015 we’ve visited Gerard Koopman’s – maybe the most successful Dutch pigeon fancier of the modern era whose pigeons excel in all corners of the world. Nick asked Gerard for a fair treatment and explained the desire to highlight youngsters who could form five beautiful breeding pairs. From the best pigeons youngsters came to Brummen, growers with huge potential include the following Gerard Koopman highlights:

 

– ‘Fridus’ x ‘Henna’ – parents ‘Martine’ with 2nd and 9th NPO
