Karl has built up his pigeons with pigeons from his good friend Freialdenhofen and Son from Aldenhoven and Bernd Morsnowski from Krefel.
The majority of his pigeons come out a stock couple. The cock (01485-96-1173 Bernd Morsnowski ) is a grandson of “Doffertje 244” (Albert Simons, Maaseik) and the hen (01757-97-719 Freialdenhofen and Son) is a daughter of the “Bunte” (Albert Simons, Maaseik).
