The great legend of Janssen brothers comes to an end … 99 years old Louis Janssen decided to sell his last 12 breeding pairs and 2 youngsters bred in 2012 … the end of the most impressive colony in the world ever – no other strain had so much impact in International pigeon racing … PIPA was asked to organise this auction of the last pigeons from the Schoolstraat ever for sale …

Six pigeons shall be sold together with their partner because of the age (2002 or older) and/or because of the fact they wear no ring anymore
