Houben J,N,L Collection

Inbred to Jonge Artiest

One of the most well-known pigeon families in the history of pigeon racing at international level is that of Jef, Luc and Nadia Houben. Their pigeons know how to win races, and they combine strong perseverance with excellent orientation skills. And that is exactly why the houben pigeon developed into an internationally renowned racing bird.

The Houben family's decision to cease keeping pigeons in 2014 marked the end of an era, but in 2017 PIPA adds another chapter to the history of this illustrious breed: we are selling 9 direct Houben pigeons, which are among the last ones that were bred by the fanciers from Itegem, thus making for a highly exclusive collection. They are all inbred to the number one stock breeder Jonge Artiest, arguably one of the most iconic pigeons ever to have existed!
Here is a brief selection of some of the numerous references achieved by his descendants:
