BELG 2288611-95 - ANEKE The hen that made many fanciers champions on race day and produced National Ace Pigeons. ANEKE was bred by Joep Koch of Holland and is a full sister to the President (NL 9397578-93). We all know who the President is and what he has won and bred.
Now I want to tell you about the hen that wrote history. Aneke is the base breeder of Joep Koch's loft. She is the grandmother to the 1st National Orleans winner, the 2nd National Ace Middle Distance All Holland and the 3rd National Ace Short Distance All Holland. Joep was the number one fancier of all Holland just a few years ago flying this President family of racing pigeons. Aneke is just beautiful. She is a medium size bird, strong back with a one pin tail, rich gravel eyes. Undoubtedly one of the best breeding hens that ever came to America.

"LAURA" is old Hofkens family bred by Louis Van Hove of Belgium. This champion fancier, that lived just a mile from Hofkens, built his family of race winners over 35 years with this super family of birds. Winning National Champion Loft, Belgium, National Ace Pigeons and also Olympiad birds representing all Belgium. "LAURA" - the foundation hen for Mr. Van Hove's loft!! The best Hofkens hen on Mike's property. She is beautiful, true violet eyed, medium size. The Hofken's pigeons dominated the pigeon sport in the early 70's just as they do now. Yes, 30 years later. With a family defined racing pigeons that win from 200 miles to 500 miles under all kind of conditions. They seem to have the ability to win when there are very tough conditions that most birds can't find their way home. They have won Don Barker over $250,000 in just 9 months in big money races (2004).
