'The Royal Family'

DIRK VAN DYKES

DE RAMBO

Dirk Van Dykes De Rambo is a 'King' amongst pigeons winning 3 x 1st in the highly competitive Antwerp Union as a yearling he was put in Dirk's stock loft. 



THE TWO PRINCES

DEN BOURGES

 Den Bourges 1st Prov Bourges 6,761 birds, 2nd National Bourges 40,401 birds, 5th Prov 1,990 birds & 54th Prov 12,570 birds is a son of Rambo

KANNIBAAL

Kannibaal the legendary 'Prince' became Belgiums Ace Pigeon at Middle distance as a yearling after winning 4 x 1st prizes is a son of Rambo

Den Bourges and Kannibaal joined their father in the stock loft as yearlings and the rest is history. 

De Rambo has produced a family dynasty of winners and they are the most sought after pigeons in the World today commanding huge amounts of money.  In Van Dykes stock loft 70% of the pigeons are from the De Rambo linage.

Kleine Dirk winner of two Nationals Troyes 17,883 birds and Bourges 7,154 birds for Dutch Fanciers C & G Koopman is a Grandson of Kannibaal and a Great Grandson of Rambo.  Koopman stated in 2000 that Kleine Dirk was his best pigeon in 25 years.

Rambo is also the Great Grandsire of 1st National Souillac winner 5,985 birds for Antoine Jacops. 

Eddy Janssen is said to be flying out of his proverbial skin his whole team is based on the Van Dyke pigeons. 



In 2006 & 2007 we had the opportunity to have a number of Direct Dirk Van Dykes on loan. 

This was a closely guarded secret whilst we pitted these Dirk Van Dykes against our existing three sprint/middle distance families.
They didn't disapoint.

We like a number of qualities in our pigeons, strong rich coloured eyes, tightly sprung wings, good muscle tone across the chest, wedge shaped with strong backs.
They didn't disapoint.

In fact this regal looking family excelled, they have every quality we look for in a pigeon. So much so that in early 2009 we extended our stock loft in anticipation of the introduction of this new family.

We are proud and extremely excited to have purchased a number of Direct Dirk Van Dykes for a large undisclosed amount. 
 
You can see the quality of our 
'Royal Family' 
for yourselves.
