The father BE13-3157253 is a grandson of Marieke BE08-3037512 – a top breeding hen – and De Schone Bliksem BE04-3001609  top breeder. This goes back to the old bloodlines of Cools Pigeons.

“Father Rika 40 is the best breeder I have in my loft”

Saïd Chadi

Who is Saïd Chadi

Just like Cools Pigeons , Saïd knows how to play with hens. The long and hard selection by Cools Pigeons to build up a family known for its successful hens also pays off in this loft. See more about his on “Why Hens”.

But victories don’t come easy. Just like all other top pigeon fanciers, Saïd is working very hard to obtain these victories.

Saïd has known pigeons all his life. His father had pigeons but never raced. Saïd himself started racing with pigeons when he was 14 years old; in 2004 he built his own loft.

Racing in Casablanca is known to be very difficult. The level is really very high and it is not easy to get these top prices. Buying good quality pigeons is crucial, but crossing them correctly, growing them in the ideal conditions, keeping them healthy and training them in the best way… all of it is needed to become a champion as Saïd is.

We hope that Father Rika 040 produces many more winners and we wish Saïd all the best with his pigeons.

The Success Story of Victor Sanchez in the US and Mexico

Bruce Gordon

How it all started

Bruce Gordon from Seattle-Washington in the USA visited our place in  2010. He came with his friends in the Rick Mardis Group. We had a very nice time together looking at our pigeons, discussing tips & tricks. And…they brought some pigeons back home.

This was the start of  long-lasting success story. For the last 13 years the Cools pigeons have dominated the region of Seatlle-Washington and Guadalajara-Mexico; mainly thanks to Victor Sanchez who is a very good club member friend of Bruce. All of Victor his pigeons come from Bruce and they are Cools Pigeons.
