Offered is 16 ARPU 68814 Check WF Janssen MALE Medium size with supple muscle.

One of my goals as a breeder has been to keep select families intact; and not only keep them intact, but breed them into even better genetic pools and performances.  This has been the case with the small colony of Merckx Janssens in my loft. 

This is a special specimen of everything a racing pigeon should be.  He results from a concentrated breeding of Old Merckx Janssens that cross with virtually any performance proven family.  It is difficult, if not impossible, to find these bloodlines in North America or Europe today.  Serious students of the sport recognize that this is the foundation blood of many European champion lofts.


The bird is down from my 969 daughter – Irma-- and Old Merckx grandson – Adriaan.    Irma’s off spring are responsible for more than 145 documented club, combine and futurity diplomas.  I stopped counting the accomplishments of her offspring in 2005.  Undoubtedly, there are more.  


A partial list of notable wins by this family of Janssens includes:

  • 1st Central Jersey Combine (NJ) vs. 3,000+ youngbirds
  • 1st 2001 Summer Series 5-Race Futurity (Idaho)
  • 1st 2002 Little Belgium Challenge (Florida)
  • 1st 2005 Derby Nacional (Colombia, South America)
  • 1st Big Island Invitational Racing Pigeon Combine (Hawaii)
  • 1st New England Open 500 mile race (Massachusetts)
  • 17th North East Union Race vs. 4,570 old birds -- 375 miles
  • Numerous diplomas in the Pacific Coast Combine (Southern California) in races released in the fog and searing heat that saw many birds lost
  • 7th 2004 Cincinnati Classic (Ohio), a smash race that only had 1 day bird
  • 3rd 2008 Queen City Memorial Futurity
  • 1st 2005 Mid-Florida Combine 300-mile race, clocked in the dark at 10:48 p.m.
  • Twice 2nd & 4th 2011 North Carolina Combine YB races into strong headwinds
  • 2010 Bird of the Year + six 1sts in the Evergreen State Concourse (Washington)
