  In the dark hours of the night, horror decent on the Dreyer Loft - A whole family of pigeons wiped out in a single blow!!  

 It came in the form of a stealth agile predator with the instinct to kill, and kill and kill and kill he did.

 Four times he cleanly bit through skull and brain, instantly  killing the Janssen family one by one.

He left,  leaving behind a scene that filled my heart with utmost despair when I entered the loft the next morning.

What a horrible sight!!

              New Super Breeder added to Dreyer Loft !!

With the help and assistance of two dear pigeon fanciers and friends, Frik and Lizette Scheepers, the Dreyer Loft manage to add to their Flor Engels breeders the Son of the Super Breeder and Racer ‘ den Argenton ‘ who currently are a foundation breeder in the lofts of Jos and Jules Engels.

Children of this famous Flor Engels pigeon who won the National Argenton race for the Engels family in 2005, are currently sold for 6 000.00 euro’s and more if available.

The Dreyer family wants to extend their sincere gratitude towards Frik and Lizette , from Friliz Lofts in Kempton park, for assisting them to obtain this magnificent pigeon. This pigeon, named ‘FLOR’ by Frik, was bought from Gys Louw by Frik last year on SA Pigeon Auction

                     Children from ‘FLOR’ will be for sale in 2014 !

 The Cocks and Hens at Dreyer Loft were moved from the main loft to their new lofts today. Here they can make turns to be let out in a huge avery where they can spread their wings, enjoy a bath and soak in the sun on a regular base.

    Summary of International Birds Acquired in 2011    

All the birds acquired by Dreyer Loft in 2011 were carefully sourced and selected to strengthen the gene pool and to add a bigger variety of youngsters to the loft.

One of the highlights were the arrival of the De Klak birds, the Hans Eijerkamp Jannsen Hen, the Hans Eijerkamp van Loon Cock and then a special Hen from Rico van Dam in the Nederland- a Jan Koenders cross Walter de Rijck bird.

All the above birds were directly imported by Dreyer Loft.

See also the Gerritsens that arived in April lower down on the page.

A few birds were also obtained locally mainly through the Allflight auctions following the winter competition.

                    OLD BUT NOT COLD 

 SA STPU 6776 - 'SLANG SE SUPRISE' -Verbruggen Cock Grandson of the famous Verbruggen 'GEELOGER'

I strugled for more than a year to breed from this Super Verbruggen Cock ,and after a lot of love and care , the great day arived.!!

On 17 Jan 2012 - 6776 became a Proud Father of 2 perfectly hatched babys.

 I do not know who was the proudest me or him!!

                                  Congratulations Old Man !!

Note - The nestpan is on the floor because the Verbruggen Hen 0882 breeding with 6776 prefer to breed either in the lower nest boxes or on the floor.

 6776 and 0882 are breeding in the single units to ensure a 100% true pedigree.  Only the second set of eggs hatched, giving us the suerety of parenthood.

  NEW BLOOD!!  - (GERRITSEN) - DIRECT IMPORT BY DREYER LOFT!!

 Studying my race results for 2009/2010  it became clear to me that my Verbruggen, Flor Engels, Janssen and combination of them were competing excellent in the short to middle distance races but on the longer races I was loosing out. This result in an overall 5th place in the Club in 2010. 
 
My young birds won

     1. Year Old Bird -Production Winner

     2. Year Old Bird - Winner - Club and Region

     3. 3x1st Place Club and Region

     4. 17 x Top 5 Places -Club

     5. 45 x Top 10 Places - Club

     6. 4-5-8-16-20 etc. Best Young Birds in Club.

All above came from the short-middle distance races up to 600km

  During my research to obtain a strain of pigeons to add to my colony at Dreyer Loft to strengthen my changes of winning in the longer distances, I became aware of the Van Wanroy and the van der Wegen blood lines. Both these  strains are well known for their ability and superiority in winning overnight and long distance races all over the world.

(See relevant information doc 1doc 2 , doc 3 , and doc 4  )

 During a online auction held by Pigeon Plaza in the Netherlands  I took note of the Combination Gerritsen from Renkum in Holland. (Info doc 5). This combination of Father Wim and his Son also Wim stretched over many years of dedicated breeding with the van Wanroys, van der Wegen and their own birds. With years of careful selection they established a strain that can compete with great success over the longer and the overnight races in Holland. They achieved fantastic results over the years and for me it became clear that this is the blood I want to import into the Dreyer Loft.

This is not a strain whose  auctioned was  based on a famous sought after fancier's name,  this was a strain formed to work and fly and to  bring results on the long and tedious  overnight races in Holland.

I managed to buy only 2 of the  young available on this auction and afterward contacted Wim who agreed to breed for me 8 more young.  Wim went out of his way to breed for me the best combination's he had available and I was extremely lucky to obtain direct children of some of his most famous stock birds.

I want to make use of this opportunity to thank Wim Gerritsen (jnr) for the effort  he went through helping me to add this excellent quality offspring of the Combinatie Gerritsen to my Loft.
