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
– ‘Dundee’ – son ‘Cassius’ and thus half-brother of NPO winners ‘Daydream’ & ‘Paridon’
– ‘Mirza’ – wonder pigeon with 3rd-6th-7th-7th NPO and mother 2nd-9th NPO
– ‘Bright Blue’ – 3th Nat. acebird longdistance Fondspiegel 2011-2013
