Jelle with his new top class breeder Roman
Jelle Jellema gained international respect for the way in which he has dominated the international extreme long distance competition, especially because his pigeons have to cover quite a lot of extra miles. Just to give you an idea, these are the times of arrival of the Jellema pigeons:
5:36 - 5:36 - 7:05 - 7:18 - 7:20 - 8:05 - etc.
"The first two pigeons were clocked almost simultaneously but they did not arrive at the same time", Jelle explains. Jelle has won two top 10 prizes in this race, and the international winner of Kees Droog from Andijk is a 50% Jelle Jellema pigeon as well.
Two youngsters of Roman win a 6th & 7th Int. Pau 2016
Over the years Jelle has been successfully trying to create the ultimate modern-day long distance pigeon. His top class racing hen Romee appears to be one of the new stars of the team. This impressive olympiad pigeon won a 3rd Nat. Bergerac 10,327 p. '13, a 3rd Nat. Orange 4,302 p. '13, a 3rd NPO St.-Vincent 1,365 p. '13, a 5th Nat. Brive 7,241 p. '13 and a 6th NPO Aurillac 3,072 p. '12. She has now demonstrated her breeding value as well: together with top class racing bird Blauwe Benno she gave birth to Roman, which is in turn the sire of NL14-1559583 Rena and NL14-1444046 Anke, the winners of a 6th and 7th international Pau 2016 respectively. In other words, two half sisters have each won an international top 10 prize! It shows the impressive breeding potential of the Jellema pigeons. This pigeon family combines a strong racing team with an outstanding group of breeding birds.
