Indeed, Dean has held the record points system in his provisional for over 30 years by winning more than 50 x 1st prizes in one year and it is now almost 15 years since he introduced middle distance pigeons from the great Michel Van Lint. He purchased many of his 1st National and Ace pigeons such as Atilla, Amos, Cristina, Mistry Lady with his only other introduction being the sprint champions of 2014.
In 2018 Dean decided to begin a new venture with his Son Dean Jnr and retained just two very special brothers ‘Kapo’ 1st National Ace Sprint KBDB YR 2014 and Korleone 2nd Nat Ace Sprint KBDB Old 2014, as their incredible breeding results earned them a place in the new breeding venture.
Results with the ‘Kapo’ and ‘Korleone’ bloodline include:
1st Overall (Provisional) Federation Champion with most points winner in federation of 2016, 2017 & 2018 winning over 60 First prizes at least 20 X first Federation (Provisional) in just 3 years
And so, to run alongside their new extreme distance “Jelle Jellema” collection, a new venture ‘Pallatts KBDB Elite’ (P.K.E) is born with a vision to create a special family of Ace pigeons to compete in middle to 1-day long distance National races. Their wish is to only obtain the most proven, constant winning bloodlines from the hardest competitions in the world, the Belgian National Ace KBDB champions. To this aim they have been quietly searching, and carefully building one of the most excusive collections of middle to long distance pigeons within the Europe, if not the world.
The new P.K.E dream came together in 2018 when the Father and son decided to make a visit to the best small loft in the world, competing in the Middle Distance races of the Antwerp Union. This loft, owned by Willy Daniels, has the most incredible results in the toughest competition in Antwerp, Belgium and is the best by far.
Willy Daniels races a total of 16 hens which includes yearlings and old birds. Amazingly it is with this very small and elite family that Willy Daniels has been crowned 3x 1st National Ace Greater Middle Distance KBDB Champion with in the last 5!
Over the last two years Dean Jnr has forged a very special bond with Willy Daniels, who together have assisted Pallatt’s in creating the foundation base of their new P.K.E Family and it is due to this special relationship that Dean has managed to obtain an entire round from all the Willy Daniels breeders, which included brothers and sisters of Daniels 2020 race team, and even though he does not sell directly to others, Dean also manged to obtain several incredible full sisters of the famous Nadine and Sara. Plus in 2020 Willy Daniels also made some very exclusive pairings especially for Dean, which included (‘Finne’ 1st National Ace GMD KBDB 2020 x Father of Nadine & Sara), also (Father Nadine & Sara x Daughter Nadine). Dean also managed to purchase a very special 2016 son of Sara 1e National Ace KBDB 2016 and a top proven breeding full brother of Nadine and Sara named ‘Dene’.
‘Dene’ is a super breeder, with in only 2 seasons he is the farther of
At Combine / S.Nat. level
At club level circa 250+ birds
In their ambitions to compliment the Willy Daniels foundation, they considered the Long Distance KBDB champions and with the help of Nicolaas & Thomas from PIPA, Pallatt managed to buy 3 direct children direct from the best long distance pigeon in the world ‘Armando’ winning the 1e Ace Long Distance KBDB 2018 and 1e Olympiad with the lowest coefficient off all time. Armando was sold to China for more than 1.25 Million Euro on PIPA Auction making “Armando” currently the most expensive Cock in the world now owned by Kier, who they thank for giving them the fantastic opportunity to strengthen their base even further.
Whilst P.K.E was looking for another top KBDB family to complement their Daniels and Armando lines, they fell in love with ‘De Bonte Crack’ of Antony Maes, as Dean was so impressed with the quality of the Maes pigeons. The “Bonte Provisional” bloodline manage to dominate within their provisional in Belgium by winning multiple Ace KBDB provisional yearlings and old birds in both greater middle distance and long distance. Dean decided to invest in ‘Den Bonte Crack‘ 1e National Ace Long Distance KBDB 2019, as has another top fancier Gerald Koopman, due to him winning the same Award as ‘Armando’ the year before.
Pallatt’s managed to obtain one of the last full brothers and 4 direct children of ‘Den Bonte Crack’ direct out of the Maes Breeding Loft, (after ‘Den Bonte crack’ was sold to china for more than 700,000 euro) plus children from ‘Papillion’ 1st Prov GMD KBDB and Maes 2006 Base breeder ‘Bonte Provisional’, who is in more than 50% of all Maes pedigrees including grandfather of ’De Bonte Crack‘ and ‘Papillion’.
PKE also had a ‘once in a life time opportunity’ to purchase a very rare full brother and a full sister of ‘New Kim’ the most expensive pigeon in the world which sold to china 1.6 million euro to China.
‘New Kim’ 1e National Ace Greater Middle Distance KBDB 2018 from Hok Van De Wouwer.
These will further strengthen their Ace KBDB breeding program and the new venture has begun with the most carefully selected, proven and outstanding bloodlines available in the world today. They will keep true to this endeavour and will succeed in their dream of building the most exclusive family of Ace Pigeons to compete in middle to 1-day long distance National races.
