Hans -Jorg Hallmann and Romario

  Hans-Jörg Hallmann with one of his favorites from the Romario line. A few years ago I wrote a 13-part series called "Ace Four Ever" about the world famous base pigeon Ace Four and his close family , how this super breeding line of Ad Schaerlaeckens was built up and how many top pigeons it had produced in the meantime ...
