Paul & Jelle Roziers (Bevel, BE) are among the best young birds' fanciers of 2013

We had already told you about the wonderful achievements of father and son Roziers from Bevel during the young birds’ season. Their pigeons were outstanding in the final national races of the season as well! They took 55 top 100 prizes at national or zonal level in seven national races, including nine top 10 prizes, which is quite remarkable.

We paid a visit to the loft of Paul and Jelle Roziers from Bevel shortly before the national race from. At the time their young birds were really dominating the competition. Click here to reread our previous report. It seems their pigeons have not slowed down in the last two national races:
