This time of year, the pigeon bazaar is running overtime and many agents are attempting to buy the top Dutch pigeons, mostly for the Asian market. But again, Hans and Evert-Jan Eijerkamp have managed to make a significant acquisition. After long negotiations with Jan and Joke Kaman (Wormeveer) the transfer has been completed and "Joy Boy" NL16-1408383, the 1st National Ace Pigeon PIPA Long Distance, has made the journey to Brummen.
This young Ace has won no less than 3 TOP 5 NPO positions on the same day long distance races and was declared victorious in the National PIPA rankings, not only ranking first but winning with the lowest coefficient ever!! Besides "Joy Boy", his father has also made the trip to Brummen.
Next to these super pigeons, "Bella Donna", NL16-1408388 was also acquired from the Kaman lofts. This yearling hen has won 2 top 3 NPO positions in 2017. The addition of these two pigeons to the breeding lofts in Brummen, shows once again the ambitions of Hans and Ever-Jan Eijerkamp and underline that only the best of the best is good enough to reach the top of the sport and stay there.
