DVV-Pigeons (Moortsele, BE): suppliers of super pigeons

Johan De Vroe and Rudi Vandeputte
DVV-pigeons, also known as Johan De Vroe and Rudi Vandeputte delivered several super pigeons in the past years. Descendants to their famous Dreampair are responsible for successes on their own lofts as on that of others. From now on, both gentlemen will choose their own path.

From 2022 onwards, Johan De Vroe and Rudi Vandeputte will no longer race under the name of DVV-pigeons. Especially Johan wants to take a step down and continue with pigeon sport at his own pace. The decision was made to sell all old birds, this auction is currently running on PIPA. We therefore want to take the time and put some of these super breeders in the spotlight.

The 'Dreampair' ('Kleine Schoonen' x 'Van Gaver Hen')

You may say it all started with this pair, and can be called one of the best breeding pairs ever for distances from 400 to 750km. They became parents to 21 top racers on their own loft, (grand)parents of more than 50 different 1st prize winners. Descendants to the 'Dreampair' won no less than 3x 1st National and 15x 1st National Zone. 6x descendants were ranked in the top of the National Ace pigeon KBDB and contributed to many National championship titles ((1st-3th-4th-5th-10th-11th-11th-12th-13th-13th-15th-etc. Nat. Champion). Simply too much to mention it all.
