The Hagens are relatively young in age as are their loft of pigeons and assuming that they live for a quite a number of years yet the potential and the future successes of this loft are predicted to be in the realms of the phenomenal. For as a team the brothers have blended the very best of endurance bloodlines and are confirming by their results so far their reputation as being masters at their chosen art. Not just as racers but as breeders. At Bloemstraat, Achthuizen, Holland, stands a small structure which contains one of the greatest families of long and marathon distance racing pigeons of the modern era. At this time, March 2005, the season of Spring has yet to fully enwrap its arms around the continent of Europe although there are signs of a subtle appearance in the landscape. But here in the land of my birth I use my imagination based upon research to travel and see rows of perches containing blooms of outstanding racing pigeons for never perhaps in the history of the sport has such a small colony of pigeons gained such a deserving international reputation.

The Hagens are relatively young in age as are their loft of pigeons and assuming that they live for a quite a number of years yet the potential and the future successes of this loft are predicted to be in the realms of the phenomenal. For as a team the brothers have blended the very best of endurance bloodlines and are confirming by their results so far their reputation as being masters at their chosen art. Not just as racers but as breeders.

The base is their reputable super couple from the De Weerdt Brothers, the NL89-111 & NL89- 274, which has produced scores of champion racers coupled with the famous Theelen cock 'The Rhooie Kweker' which is the 'red godfather' of the Hagens family. (Jan Theelen being a past winner of the Barcelona International). The so called red godfather being the grand sire of 'Sarina' 3rd International Barcelona; 'Lucinda' 23rd International Barcelona; 'Rivaldo' 2nd and 7th National Bordeaux; 'Bauer 014' 1st International Tarbes. Sarina being internationally acclaimed as being one of the best distance pigeons of her era. Her sire being the great 'Carcasonne' a wonderful breeder and racer scoring 13th, 49th, 52nd and 89th in Nationals. Another great hen was 'Sonja' who became the Hagens first International winner from Perpignan after scoring from St. Vincent
and San Sebastian. May I add that a son and a daughter of Sarina was sold recently for the sum of 22,500 pounds sterling.

The joining of the bloodlines of 'Carcasonne' and the 'Rhooie Kweker' would appear to be the basis for the Hagens reputation world-wide. Of course if a family is producing so many winners and it is reported that about 5 National Winners for other fanciers aside from the Brothers successes then the sport is bound to sit up and take notice. This is all an exciting development for we in a modern age are witnessing more so than say the sport of Hansennes day the evolution of a strain and the ultra distance pigeons of tomorrow. Of course the Hagens are not the sole pioneers of the sport in the new millennium but they are an important part in the growth of a new breed of pigeon destined to conquer the extreme distances. Their progeny has been
spreading gradually throughout the world's pigeon fraternity and hopefully through inspired management will add to the potential and progress of the sport. I await with interest (God willing)!
