Kuypers Brothers , Neer…

August 27, 2014

We recently visited the world legends Andre and Piet Kuypers in Neer. They very kindly let us visit despite suffering a recent break in and robbery that resulted in both brothers receiving injuries and in fact Andre had only been released from Hospital on the morning of our visit after a four month stay with a very bad injury to his arm after the attack.

The birds themselves were as expected quite outstanding and it is quite easy to see how they are so successful in the Marathon two day races. It is well known that their bloodline, based on the original base couple NL71-1393807 ‘Zoon Spin’ x NL69-1247869 ‘Zuster Pau’ made extreme distance racing look easy with the Barcelona s 1,2 & 3 all sons of the base couple achieving results that had not been seen before or since.

Then their are the other two wonder racing hens ‘Beatrix’(1st National St Vincent & 2nd National Bergerac) and ‘Zwartje’ (2nd National & 3rd International Barcelona) that are also descendants of the old base couple. More recently they also raced the ‘Nachtvleiger’~ ‘Pauduiven 699′ ~ ”Zoon Nachtvleiger’~’Roos’ and many more multiple performers from the classic National and International races.

Also in recent years the descendants of the basic pair ’07’ x ’69’ won the Barcelona International Race for Chrtien Vanoppen 1987 ~ Wim Van Leeuwen 1988 ~ Jan Theelen 1993 ~ Willems Thone 1996 ~ Valentin Vanheusden 1997 ~ Comb.Gardien-RBB 2002 ~ Vrosh Meyers 2004 ~ Danny Vagenende 2008 and so on…

The Kuypers Brothers have maintained the bloodline of their original couple and their famous racers complete until the current times with further great use of the bloodlines of other super marathon performers Jan Theelen, Wiel Cramers,Wim Van Leeuwen, Anton Van Haaren to maintain their high performance levels…

The brothers great friend Jan Hermans arranged evrything for us and we were very lucky indeed to be able to select for our own breeding loft from the principle pairs and must thank the brothers for their hospitality and generosity shown on our visit…
