Jan and Joke Kaman Part 2 - Joint breeding Koper Lady on the Eijerkamp lofts very successful.
In the first part of this article, we reviewed the joint breeding results, with "Joke", one of Jan and Joke Kaman’s, from Wormerveer, top hens. In this part, we want to present "Koper Lady", who was also housed in the Brummen breeding lofts for several months. While there she was paired to multiple top pigeons of which the offspring has provided for quite an uproar.
"Koper Lady", NL05-1239910
For a young bird sale, in support of Rayon C in the North Holland Section, Piet Koper donated a young hen, the NL05-1239910. Jan liked what he saw in this young hen and in hindsight made the purchase of his life. The 910, meanwhile renamed "Koper Lady", emerged as a true champion.
"Koper Lady" flying from the Jan Kaman lofts won a.o:

In their "Joke" and "Koper Lady", Jan and Joke Kaman have had 2 super hens in their loft and the quality of their offspring, will reverberate for a long time in the pigeon world. Despite selling all their racing pigeons in 2015, Jan and Joke in 2016 were again at the top, flying only yearlings and competed with the best for the titles and Teletext positions.
