Record loft

The incredible collection of national championship titles and national ace pigeons of the Vandenheede brothers is unseen in the pigeon sport. With Mattheo's genes expertly captured in the stock, they seem to have access to an inexhaustible source of quality. Year after year there are new pigeons that follow in the footsteps of their parents and grandparents and let themselves be admired on the national stage. For Freddy and Jacques this is pure enjoyment. After all, with such a stock of pigeons, they don't have to be afraid of anyone! They are therefore rightfully proud of some notable records they have to their name:

• In one season (2020) twice the three first national
Brive – 3755 pigeons – 1 – 2 – 2
Limoges – 9756 pigeons – 1 – 2 – 3
• In 2019 : the five fastest pigeons in a national race
Vierzon – 32530 pigeons – 1 – 2- 3 – 4 - 5
• In 2020 : 25 national ace pigeons in the official ranking KBDB
• In 2021 : 17 national ace pigeons in the official ranking KBDB
• Already 4 times general champion KBDB (2012 – 2017 -2018 - 2022)
