最高のクラス2人組フランガー兄弟 - バトヒューフェドルプ(オランダ)、素晴らしい品質の鳩。

They have been the men to beat in their region and province and in the national championships since 2008. This season they had international success as well: their pigeon ‘Miss Romy’ was sent to the Olympiad in Nitra. Their loft is not very big but it houses a pigeon breed of impressive quality.

The two brothers used to play separately under their own names together with their sons. However, the two brothers Hanny & Frans decided to form a team in 2005 as the ‘Fanger brothers’ and this was the start of a successful combination. Frans usually takes care of the old birds, whereas Hanny is responsible for the young birds. It was Hanny who once told us: “I would rather have no ventilation in the loft than bad ventilation.” The young birds are kept in a loft that is practically sealed off but that does not prevent them from performing outstandingly well.

You are probably curious about the achievements of the two brothers. Well, the following list of achievement makes very clear that this loft is about quality, not about quantity. They are known for being successful at a regular basis. They take great care of their pigeons, which are of excellent quality. Is not easy to become a successful fancier but you should not make things more complicated than they are. That is the philosophy of Hanny & Frans Fanger, who have won the following prizes in championships since 2008 (this is only a selection; it would be impossible to include all prizes):

A strong family!

Their pigeons seem to be just as strong as the two brothers themselves! The top class pigeons originate mainly from pigeons of Jan Manten, Henny la Grouw, Bertus Vermeulen and Louis van Loon. Keep in mind that the pigeons of Jan Manten and Bertus Vermeulen are largely based on the bloodlines of Koen Minderhout (= Vandenabeele). The successes of the two brothers make clear that this combination of bloodlines results in excellent racing pigeons. Now it is time to introduce some of their best cracks!

'Miss Romy’ is an excellent hen. She won a whole lot of prizes, which resulted in the title of second Olympiad Pigeon 2013. IN 2010 she was already awarded the title of third National Ace Pigeon One Day Middle Distance (NPO) and in 2009 she was 7th National Best Hen WHZB. This means she had a long and very successful career as a racing pigeon as the winner of:

Tours	NPO/NAT		1/  5,399
	Sec II		1/ 18,971
Morlincourt		1/ 16,454
Blois	NPO		3/  5,368
Ablis	NAT		3/  3,688
Orleans	NPO		8/  6,778
Bourges	NPO		13/ 7,640
Tours	NPO		30/ 3,916
Blois	NPO		36/ 8,803
Orleans	NPO		43/ 6,773

Her outstanding sister 'Isabel' has won:

Strombeek		1/ 23,347
Tours	NPO		2/  6,565
Nijvel	Prov		11/21,506
Ablis	NAT		14/ 3,688
Tours	NPO		19/ 3,916
Nanteuil PROV		20/11,894

These successful racing birds were bred from ‘Slatan’ x ‘Anne’. Zlatan is a pigeon that has the bloodlines of H. La Grouw and a son of ‘Bourges’, winner of three teletext notations. The ‘Anne’ is a daughter of top couple ‘Jan x Berta’, which has also bred ‘Willy’, the dam of Bowien & Britney.


As we said, these pigeons are nieces of 'Miss Romy & Isabel' and they were bred from Willy, a sister of Anne. Willy was paired with ‘Herman’ and together they bred such top class hens as Britney and Bowien. Bowien has won a first national against 3,689 pigeons from Ablis. Her sister Britney has won many prizes over the years. This is her list of achievements:

Morlincourt	1/ 3,875
Nijvel		1/ 2,139
Strombeek	1/   930
Nijvel		1/   419
Chimay		1/   414
Strombeek	4/ 3,008
Chimay		5/ 2,458
Ablis NAT	12/3,689
Laon		12/3,427
Strombeek	13/2,123
Morlincourt	20/3,592
Meer		26/4,487
Nijvel		26/3,812
Strombeek	26/4,414
Meer		27/4,386
Chimay		28/3,366

This is impressive! Some of you might have noticed that these prizes were won by their hens. Well, the cocks of the Fanger brothers have been doing great as well! Take for instance their cock ‘Messi’: he was first National Cock WHZB in 2012. He performed very well both nationally and provincially and he turned into one of the big stars in the Fanger loft, which houses only about 45 racing birds.

Another successful cock is ‘Youri’. He has won a car as winner of the first prize in the NPO race from Chateauroux against 6,009 pigeons. However, this was not his first teletext notation. He also won an 8th prize from Orleans against 5,146 birds, as well as several (+13x) top 100 results provincially and in the NPO.

This is what the pigeon family of the Fanger brothers has achieved. The quality of their birds is really amazing but we should not forget that they spend a lot of time in their lofts to make sure that their pigeons are always in great form. These birds are among the best pigeons you can find Belgium. They are simply amazing.

Nicholas: Succes. Vincent weet hoe vol mijn agenda ( o.a. door het opzetten van een nieuwe nachtclub/disco ) momenteel is. Toen de stukken eergisteren wegviel heb ik getracht tussen de afspraken met leveranciers etc dit af te maken. Het is goed gelukt echter érg kort op de deadline. Ik zal de fam. Fanger persoonlijk inlichten dat we proberen zoveel mogelijk te vertalen, maar dat ik niet kan garanderen dat dat lukt. Ik zal dit weekend contact opnemen met de Helpdesk.
