Scheele brothers (Terneuzen, NL) have been at the top for years thanks to their Superboy breed

The pigeon loft of the Scheele brothers is the home of Superboy, an outstanding breeding pigeon that has allowed them to win many, if not all of their major victories.

We assume the Scheele brothers need no introduction. They have been playing at the highest level for years on end, giving them an excellent international and international reputation. The combination consists of father Adriaan (76) and his son Jaap (47). The fanciers continued to use the name of “brothers” after the passing of Piet (Adriaan’s brother) in 2009, to honour him. This pigeon family has won countless victories over the years, including:

Chateauroux Nat. 16847 p.: 1-3-8-16-33-42-59-71-82-etc. (23/36)
Pithiviers        1131 p.: 1-2-3-4-6-9-10-14-15-18-20-21-23-etc. (37/42)
Orleans            629 p.: 1-2-3-4-9-12-15-17-23-etc. (27/41)
Gien Prov.        3725 p.: 2-3-5-9-12-21-22-26-28-29-etc. (30/48)

It goes without saying that they can rely on a top class pigeon breed made of some of the very best bloodlines in The Netherlands, including Marijke Vink (Mookhoek, NL), Jan Hooymans (Kerkdriel, NL), Dirk van Dyck (Zandhoven, BE) and Willem de Bruijn (Reeuwijk, NL). Recent reinforcements came from the lofts of C. and G. Koopman (Ermerveen, NL) and G. & S. Verkerk (Reeuwijk, NL). One of the cornerstones in this loft is without doubt Superboy – this is what Jaap has to say about this pigeon: “he is the best breeder we have ever had, and we owe everything to him.” This cock was usually paired to Dochter 666, a pigeon of Henk Melis (Westkapelle, NL).
