09/08/2017 - The pigeon loft of Rutz & Sons continues to be a topic of debate among pigeon fanciers. The reason is simple: they have been incredibly successful in the extreme long distance, even though these races have been removed from the German calendar many years ago.
07/11/2016 - 2016 has been another great season for the team of Rutz & Sons. The location of their loft does not really work to their advantage in the long distance classics but that did not stop them from achieving great results.
22/08/2016 - We bring you yet another report about the pigeon loft of Rutz & Sons. This time we discuss their results in the yearlings' race from Agen on 28th of June 2016, where the team did a fantastic job. The pigeons were released at 6:50, and they arrived home in quick succession.
03/11/2015 - The 2015 racing season is over. It was a difficult season, with many losses in the major international races. The weather conditions were often quite difficult, and some weekends had very high temperatures. Simply put: many fanciers were dissatisfied about this year’s racing summer.
28/10/2014 - Another season of pigeon racing has gone by, and it turned out quite a difficult year with a relatively high number of losses. Many races were influenced by adverse weather conditions including heat waves, heavy rain, and sometimes heavy thunderstorms. We think few people were satisfied with the weather last summer.
03/12/2013 - Their long distance pigeons are exceptionally strong and sometimes simply too strong for their opponents. They appear very successful in other lofts as well. Their achievements in the races from Barcelona are quite sensational.
13/03/2013 - These pigeons have exceptional breeding qualities: three different winners from Marseille that come from three different countries (Great Britain, Germany and France) originate from 50% of the bloodline of Rutz & Sons!
14/04/2011 - Where the Belgian and Dutch overnight racing pigeon was always considered as the very best in the world in this specific disclipline, the German marathon bird explicitely showed to have won teritory and is at least equally good as ist neighbours from the west.
