Paul & Jelle Roziers (Berlaar, BE) keep on excelling with ‘Queen L’-dynasty

In the Belgian province of Antwerpen the yearling and young birds team of Paul and Jelle Roziers is again performing on exceptional highs … the genes of living legend ‘Queen L’ make others look like schoolboys; the pair ‘Sunny Delight’ x ‘Little Queen’ sees its star status confirmed by impressing performances of descendants!

The yearling team is raced on total widowhood system and entered on 6 heavy middle distance races … The result was astonishing:

    Blois I.prov.        2,755 birds: 1st-2nd-3rd-32nd-51st (8/18)
    Bourges Nat.        20,544 birds: 193rd-269th-312th-1002nd-1678th-2220th-2225th (11/16)
    Chateauroux Nat.    25,263 birds: 64th-2960th-3319th-4699th-5695th (7/14)
    Limoges Nat.        14,673 birds: 64th (1/1)
    Montluçon Semi-Nat.  7,700 birds: 11th-146th-265th-385th-387th-761st (9/9)

The great Roziers specialty – young birds racing – was in 2011 so far again truly sensational! “The system was changed a small bit,” says Jelle. “Last winter I visited Embrechts-Theunis from The Netherlands and he convinced me to change the system. We used to race widowhood with youngsters – now we race them ‘on the door’. They are darkened from beginning of February until end June … starting 2 weeks before National Bourges they are lightened. Until Orleans the sexes were together (2 weeks before Bourges, AR) and on the provincial Blois race - when we won 4th, 5th and 7th - they were just one week ‘on the door’. From the start this method does well this year, despite the very heavy season so far. Therefore our hope for the Nationals is really high.”

No wonder, looking at the young birds results so far. On their territory ‘Laarhoeve’ the best 2011 performances with youngsters are:

    Quievrain     (100km)     765 birds: 7th-8th-10th-19th-24th-45th-76th-82nd-88th (28/86)

Since their pairing in 2010, BE04-6277715 ‘Sunny Delight’ x BE09-6222557 ‘Little Queen’ are really striking because of the great boost their children give to the Roziers team on the beloved heavy middle distance races with youngsters. Without exceptions, children to this pair showed great talent in their year of birth and grabbed hands full of really promising quotations. Shortly resulting in:

‘Queens Delight’      8th prov. Gueret             1,871 birds
                      42nd Nat. Gueret            13,885 birds

                      1680th Nat. Argenton        22,442 birds

Results that made the expectations for 2011 very high of course; expectations that are now fully met up to. Jelle: “This is just the second year the pair raised youngsters and again success has come. Like ‘Havana’ winning 2nd I.prov. Blois against 2,755 birds after a loft mate, also becoming second from a total liberation of 6,355 birds. Two weeks later the wonder pair ‘Sunny Delight’ x ‘Little Queen’ is in centre of attention when two daughters won 7th and 21st I.prov. Blois against 3,946 birds …. On the same race a grandson won 31st I.prov.

Before 2010 ‘Sunny Delight’ already bred the top racers ‘Sunlight Dancer’ (29th Nat. La Souterraine 18,973 birds, 75th Nat. Argenton 20,844 birds and 133rd Nat. Bourges 31,824 birds) and ‘Sunrise Queen’ (amongst others 12th Nat. Bourges 17,138 birds, 136th Nat. Gueret 2,936 birds, 362nd Nat. La Souterraine 17,814 birds, 450th Nat. Gueret 14,245 birds and 559th Nat. Bourges 37,357 birds). As son to ‘De 005’ x ‘Eleanor’ he is bred from the basic pair that also produced toppers such as:

La Souterraine winner against 16,297 birds and now absolute star breeding hen at Roziers. In 2011 again her offspring reigned supreme – 2nd and 3rd generation offspring is this year’s winner of:
