Kipp & sons (Althornbach, GE), Winner of PIPA IATP Championship 2011

"Passion and enthusiasm is the way to success! Top birds are our passion." This is the statement of Kipp family from Althornbach about their pigeons. In 2011 the passion was also appreciable in Althornbach. Also because they won the PIPA-IATP-Championship 2011!


Hugo & Wulfram Kipp - Two Grandchampions of the german and international Long Distance

For many years they belonged to the best long distance players in Germany and the international Long Distance sport. Numerous titles moved every year to the Siedlungsstaße in Althornbach. Unique was without doubt that they won from 1996 to 2000 - 5 x 1st Long Distance Champion of Germany in a row! But also in 2011 they won top prizes and titles, one of these prestigious titles is the PIPA-IATP-Championship 2011!   

Development of  Kipp & sons

In 1953 Wulfram Kipp started with the pigeon sport. Some of his friends were racing with birds so he also decided to start doing it. In the beginning the Kipp Family only raced in the Union programme. But since 1985 they also race the international flights. Due to the fact that they were so successful at the international base they decided to concentrate their work on the Long Distance. Since that time the name Kipp has been a definition in the international Long Distance sport. Up to 1979 the base of the Kipp Family were the Stichelbaut-Cattrysse pigeons. They were very successful in the Union flights. In 1980 a friend decided to quit his fancying career and a lot of his pigeons moved to Althornbach. Especially birds from Piet De Weerd. 1990 they bought birds from Manfred Förster and a top hen from Kurt Becker. She belongs until today to the best hens ever to sit in the loft of Kipp & sons. Another attribute is that Hugo Kipp puts the best racers every year into the breeding loft. Also in 2011. Find here some Top results 2011:

The feeding system

The system from September to the end of March is very easy. The racers get every day 49 % Mixture 1 + 49 % Mixture 2 + Rape + lady´s thistle. Additionally  every 2 weeks they get garlic oil and yeast. In the water you can find fruit- or apple vinegar. From the beginning of April to the  beginning of the racing season they will get 50 % Mixture 1 and 50 % Mixture 2. The addional items are the same as in the winter period. The racing season starts during the 3rd April week. The birds have to go into the basket every week  . The training flights are from 150 to 600 km. They also get peanuts. Other additional items are Aminovit, yeast, garlic oil and electrolytes. Before the birds go to a long distance flight they stay at home for 2 - 3 weeks. The pigeons train every morning and every evening (1 hour).  Food will always be offered after the training and they can have a bath whenever they want. The birds will be basketed always with full crop, but only with light corns. As much volume as possible, but as least weight as possible, this is the motto of Kipp. This can only occur if you give the birds a certain time of recreation but with as much food as possible. The last 2 days before basketing, the birds should be in the shape where they do not need much food anymore, only what they like and need to fill up on after training. Peanuts will be mixed in the daily food and not offered separately.

Motivation

The Motivation in general is not focused on one special race, the relation between pigeon and fancier has to find the right balance. Another important point is the fact that the bird has to have the "homing feeling" as well. The pigeons are the whole winterseason in the racing loft and their compartments, in spring they will be coupled twice, which should strengthen their "homing instinct", as well. Birds will be raced in total widowhood without breeding youngsters. On the day of basketing the cocks and the hens have the chance to get into their compartments and can stay together for at least 5-10 minutes. After returning home the pairs will be locked in the compartment and so cock and hen  will see each other in the compartment during the whole season, another very important and constant point of motivation. Pairs which returned not completely will be given any available bird until the partner returns, the birds are used to this procedure in that way and its not a big problem if one is missing from time to time. Changing partners is therefore no big deal and will not affect the motivation. After 2-3 hours, depending on the race, the partners are separated. The most important central theme of Kipp is the  fact that a bird will never go to a race pumped up with vitamins or "over"- motivated. Concentration is the most important point for success!

Additionally Hugo Kipp mentioned that the quality of the bird is the main reason to being successful, all the other components like food or motivation are just little parts in the mosaique. "I think that 90% of the birds for a race are prepared in a sufficient way, its the quality of the bird, which will make the difference", so Kipp.
