Pricilla won a great double victory for Albert Derwa, both at provincial level against 1,431 yearlings and in Zone B2 against 3,114 pigeons. Priscilla is obviously a talented pigeon: she has had a nice season already and she did very well as a young bird in 2012 as well. She was thirtieth best young bird in the PIPA ranking in the national races with three prizes. These are last year’s results:
Pithiviers 6/412 Pithiviers 10/978 Gueret nat. 33/16,988 Soissons 52/1,024 La Souterraine nat. 468/19,155 Bourges nat. 588/33,524
You can see she did equally well in 2013:
Gueret zon.B2 1/3,114 Pithiviers 1/822 Pithiviers 4/766 Soissons 4/301 Pithiviers 5/338 Pithiviers 8/1,185 Momignies 8/144
She is quite a racing hen! Priscilla underpins the amazing value of the stock dam Paulien in the Derwa-Luxem family. She is not the first successful descendant. Priscilla is a sister of De Zoon, who took the title of First Nat. Champion yearlings KBDB in 2011. Primo is another outstanding pigeon bred directly from Paulien.

Paulien BE06-2090139, an amazing racing and breeding pigeon
Paulien is an invaluable breeding pigeon for Albert Derwa. She was a very good racing hen as well as winner of the following prizes:
8th nat. Ace Pigeon Extreme Middle Distance KBDB 2007 1st seminat. Châteauroux 1st prov. Gueret 2nd prov. Blois 10th seminat. Argenton
She proved to be even better as a breeding hen in the loft of Derwa-Luxem. In fact she has played an important role in other lofts in Belgium and abroad as well. We give you a few references from this season:
Koen Minderhoud (Koudekerke, NL) for instance won the first NPO Pithiviers 6,340 pigeons and the first NPO La souterraine 3,077 pigeons with his NL11-3014703 Geeloger. The dam of Geeloger if Fransiska, a direct Derwa-Luxem bird and a daughter of Paulien and full sister of De Primo, De De Zoon, Pricilla, etc.
Jos Thoné (As, BE) won a provincial first prize from Vierzon against 3,088 old birds with his Derwien, BE11-5010133 last season. The dam of Derwien was also a daughter of Paulien!
It would be fair to say that Paulien is a phenomenal breeder in today’s generation of pigeons. She will be of great value for Albert Derwa-Luxem in the years to come!
