Beetle’s African Dream has returned to her home base after her glorious successes in the Afrika Pro OLR

Beetle’s African Dream has returned to her home base after her glorious successes in the Afrika Pro OLR

"Beetle’s African Dream" has returned to her home base after experiencing a highly successful edition at the Africa Pro OLR in South Africa, where she emerged as one of the top pigeons thanks to her victory in the 300 km flight as well as in the final, where she arrived in the First Drop and ultimately secured the 3rd prize. Subsequently, she was auctioned online and repurchased to nurture these top genetics for our own breeding loft, as well as to boost our OLR breeding program. After a long journey back from South Africa to the USA and then to Europe, she is finally back on her birth loft, ready to pass on her qualities to the next generation.
