Most attention is drawn to NL12-3202464 Kyara. This one-year-old widow hen was 1st General Pigeon Champion in the pigeon association P.V. De Voorwaarts and 2nd General Pigeon Champion in union 7 of the department of Zeeland ’96 in 2013. The icing on the cake was the title of 1st Provincial Pigeon Champion Middle Distance of the department of Zeeland ’96 this season. She earned her title with a 12th prize from Pithiviers (4340 p.) and a 34th prize from Orléans (3023 p.). Kyara is a granddaughter of four excellent breeding hens that form the basis of the pigeon family of Cees Schroevers. Click here for the pedigree of Kyara NL12-3202464.
One of the grandfathers of Kyara is the BE10-6163775 Superboy 775. This fabulous breeder was 6th National Ace Pigeon TBOTB (The Best Of The Best). He was bred from a grandson of the famous Kaasboer of Gaston van de Wouwer and from the 253 Vichy Hen of Van Eynde-Goovaerts. Superboy 775 is still fairly young but he is already sire and grandfather of several outstanding pigeons housed in the lofts at Arnemuiden. Apart from grandfather of Kyara, Superboy 775 is also the sire of the NL12-3202421, which finished 8th in the Pigeon Championship One-Day Long Distance in department Zeeland ’96. This makes him the best yearling in the ranking. Click here for an overview of Superboy 775's breeding references.

Azelio is related to the Koopman breed (the lines of Ermerveen’s Hope and Annelies) from his father’s side and his dam is NL04-0406596 Nadine, 1st Provincial Ace Pigeon. Drie Vijfjes is a daughter of BE01-6153820 Dikke Flor (Flor Engels & Son) paired to a daughter of Jonge Bijter of Koen Minderhoud.
