Maurice and Luc De Laere (Anzegem, BE) have pure breeding gold with their combination of super crack ‘Tieke’ coupled with the line ‘Bliksem’ Vandenabeele!

The colony of Maurice and Luc Delaere became famous in the first years of the new millennium when their super crack the ‘Tieke’ was crowned ‘Provincial Ace bird Middle Distance KBDB’ West Flanders for 2 years in a row, and also won the title of 1° Nat Champion Middle Distance KBDB!

Winding, and often narrow roads led us to the region of Stijn Streuvels, to be more specific to the municipality Anzegem (located between Kortrijk and Waregem), where the successful middle distance colony of father Maurice and son Luc De Laere live. Maurice is a retired farmer, whilst son Luc is a maintenance mechanic by a local textile weaver. What we noticed straight away was the sober but reliable attic lofts where the ‘Boom slates’ guarantee an abundance of fresh air and oxygen… the lofts with the widowers can be found in the shed above the old stalls, with the entrance on the west… which makes the lofts a little ’too’ damp to the liking of our hosts. Hence it is necessary to keep any eventual coccidiosis under control.
Like in most lofts which have been racing at the highest level for years… Maurice and Luc can thank their sharp rise, and the following confirmed success years… on the discovery of an extra breeding pigeon, or a top breeding couple… from which several extra racing and/or breeding pigeons have been bred, around which a successful family or a stock can be built.  It all began when they caught a stray from the former top champion Willy Ruttijn from Kruishoutem. As a return favour Willy gave Maurice and Luc a late youngster, which immediately grew to be the stock mother of the loft. Later more Ruttijn pigeons were to move in the same direction! They also obtained ‘top class’ from fellow townsman Julien Demilt which can still be found in the pedigrees! But the absolute Bull’s eye came via a cock from father-in-law Edor Loquet, namely the ‘Jonge Bonten’… because when coupled with the ‘Blauw Rentergem’ (origin Jules Rentergem from Zulte), they discovered the ‘super breeding couple’ which immediately put the success train on the rails! One of their sons was the ‘Crayonnée 98’ (self 1° Blois with a lead of almost 10 minutes)… and he in turn became father of the aforementioned ‘Tieke’… which in the meantime has grown to be just about the most dominant figure on the success train rattling through Anzegem!

The golden ‘Tieke’

Today it is still the line of this wonder bird causing the sensational performances up to provincial and even national level in the middle distance and grand middle distance. Because the ‘Tieke’ was not only a real ‘super crack’ as a racing pigeon, but later in the breeding loft he developed into a real ‘top sire’, a true golden ‘stock bear’… from which the descendants anno 2011 still cause furore, and demand a leading role in the competition happenings! Here a short summary of the most prominent exploits of the wondrous top athlete:

-The ‘Tieke’ 3010207/00

1° Prov Ace bird Middle distance KBDB ’01
9° Nat. Ace bird Middle distance KBDB ‘01
1° Prov Ace bird Middle distance KBDB ’02
9° Nat Ace bird Middle distance KBDB ‘02
1° Prov Tours 1.557 p.
2° Prov Blois 1.003 p.

His performances lay at the basis of a series of remarkable performances with the 1° and 2° nominated, with which Maurice and Luc will stand on the highest rung of the podium in Ostend at the end of the season as

1° National Champion of Belgium ‘Middle distance’ KBDB 2002

The tome was immediately set for a series of supreme performances in the middle distance and grand middle distance, which was to succeed in a rapid tempo over the following years!
Descendants of this ‘Tieke’ currently form then the basis on which the majority of the current top successes are founded… in particular descendants of the golden ‘Bliksem’-line from Gaby Vandenabeele, with super breeding hen ‘Justine Bliksem’ as figurehead… ensure real fireworks in the results. It is so impressive that for those interested we would like to go even deeper and elaborate more, by using a few striking examples!

Descendants of the ’Junior Tieke 3007665/02’ x ‘Justine Bliksem 3008201/06’

 The ‘Junior Tieke’ is not just any old bird. He is not only son of the ‘Tieke’, but was self a real racing talent which managed to categorise himself between the provincial Ace birds three times as

2° Prov Ace bird Middle distance KBDB 2005
4° Prov Ace bird Middle distance KBDB 2004
5° Prov Ace bird Middle distance KBDB 2006

The ‘Justine Bliksem’ is then again a direct Gaby Vandenabeele, as direct daughter of the legendary ‘Bliksem 062/98’ x ‘Dagmar 273/02’ (own nest sister of the 1° Nat Bourges by Rik Cools from Ruiselede)! No wonder that once again real crack pigeons have been bred from such a ‘classy’ breeding couple, so as:
