HOFKENS

 

Below you will find the Hofkens birds in my loft.

My Hofkens are mostly from the loft of Frans Verheyen.  Verheyen has constantly proven he is a master breeder of the Hofkens pigeons.  His original pigeons came from Gus Hofkens or Van de Pol, and were children and grandchildren from the old Driebander (3-bars) himself.  Van de Pol was a close friend of Gus, and had many of the pigeons Verheyen needed.  Gus Hofkens said that all the children from his Driebander were good racers and breeders.  Driebander died in the hands of his illustrious owner Gus, when he was showing him to a visitor and tripped with him.

Verheyen bred and raced some of the best Hofkens anywhere, their names are now world known, and their children and grandchildren have been breeding fantastic racing pigeons for many lofts.  Mike Ganus has purchased more of the better pigeons and their children than anyone else.  He has owned at one time or another, some of the most famous that has ever left the famous loft.  Such famous pigeons as Kliene Merckx '86, Top Man, Flash 190, Blue Chip, Young Merckx, De Jonge Merckx, Mr. Bourges, First Lady, and children of de Rocket 200, Old Merckx, Kliene Merckx'80, de 500, Old Pol, and de Fondman, were all in his loft at some point in there life.

I have acquired children and grandchildren of these famous pigeons, and their breeding abilities have shown me that these pigeons are the best I have ever owned.  Look through them, I'm sure you will finds some that you will want children from.  This is the cream of 10 years of searching for the best!
