The breeding-gold of Yelena made Etienne Meirlaen (Deurle, BE) a worldstar.

The discovery of a golden breeding-hen, forms the basis for topperformances for many and many years. Wonderhen Yelena at Etienne Meirlaen is such a breeding-hen with golden eggs.

Golden stock dam Yelena: the best breeding-hen worldwide for extreme long distance

To say that the Meirlaen pigeons are a world class breed in the extreme long distance would be stating the obvious. Their palmares says it all: national winners, ace pigeons and Olympiad Pigeons, as well as national champions. And one of the pigeons that has had a big part in this success story is stock dam Yelena. She is without doubt one of the best stock dams of her generation at international level. A breeding-hen with exceptional top-genes. Carrier of the very exclusive  LDHA genotype A/A.

The Yelena dynasty holds a firm grip on the international racing scene. The list of achievements of her youngsters and grandchildren is simply astounding:
