Johan and Wil Boonen from Buggenum each race separately, but together possess a wonderful breeding loft, called “Boonen Pigeons.”
After Wil moved from Neer to Buggenum in 2004, Johan followed in 2008. Since 2010 a mission was started.
This mission was to excel at the international races with the main goal of Barcelona. To achieve this, substantial investments were made in quality pigeons. The pigeons of Ton Vorselen from Thorn were purchased as the basis.
These pigeons are therefore a common thread running through our current colony.
In addition, pigeons were purchased from various top fanciers. Such as by:
- Rogier Nijs, Tegelen
- Comb. Nouwen-Paesen, Peer (Belgium)
- Comb. Janssens-Hausoul, Epen
- Comb. Schreurs-Hauben, As (België)
- Jos Martens, Stein
