ZG HELIOS Breeding Association-AUCTION

Dear Sports Friends,

Since the founding of the ZG HELIOS Breeding Association is more than 25 years ago, its members Dietmar Schulz in East Germany, Bruno Bucher in Switzerland, Yu Tao in China, Dr. Matthias Warzecha and Olaf Gehrken in Northern Germany have the general breeding goal:

Breeding of a high-performing, hereditary pigeon family with an emphasis on mold breeding.

With the focus on a participation in one loft races, which has been taking place for a number of years, fast and resilient pigeons are bred, which are already able to deal positively and successfully as youngsters with changing climatic and other conditions.

The descendants of the ZG HELIOS Basic-Breeders "Braveheart 1340" and "ARES", whose children and grandchildren have largely contributed to the success of the ZG Helios in the last decade, are combined with the best pigeons that are available in Europe.

Dirk van den Bulck's pigeons are certainly one of the current one’s pigeons with the highest priority worldwide. There are only a few breeders who can consider themselves lucky to be able to call originals from this exceptional breeder their own, which were still bred on his loft in Grobbendonk.

When we first visited Dirk van den Bulck in 2012, we were enthusiastic about his pigeons. We ordered a round of young pigeons in 2013 and took our future top breeder "Dirk", a brother of "Olympic Rosita", with us on the journey home.

We are glad, that we were able to win the first basic pigeons of this international exceptional loft for the ZG Helios before the hype about Dirk van den Bulck started. We have been able to maintain personal contact continuously, so that in recent years we have regularly received originals from Dirk's top pigeons.

On our ZG HELIOS breeding loft, Dirk's originals take care of offspring: a brother and a sister "Olympic Rosita"; a sister "Kittel"; a sister “Olympic Kittel”, a brother “La Machine”, “EOS”, a granddaughter of the “Pitbull” and a daughter “Olympic Kittel”.

In the past few years, we have also received incredibly high-performance pigeons from Stefaan Lambrechts. He is a fancier who is very well connected in the core area of the Belgian-Pigeon-Sport and is always looking for the even better pigeons. After new introductions by Gert Heylen, Rudy van Reeth, Jos van den Brande and Jos Maris, our ZG Helios will continue to introduce and test one or the other round of a new Belgian top loft through the mediation of Stefaan Lambrechts.

With one son each of the “TopStar” and the “XTRA” as well as a few females from special top pigeons, we have proven breeding pigeons from the best of the Belgian-Champion-Loft Raoul ad Xavier Verstraete. The offspring from the children of our “TopStar” and the “XTRA” son are very successful at the one loft races year after year - ideal pigeons for combination with the other successful families of our ZG Helios.

For the first time we are offering pigeons in an auction in the USA. Many thanks to FCI world champion Simon Wolf, who has also been successful with the offspring “Braveheart 1340” and “ARES” in recent years.

Simon made this contact and made the auction possible.

If you have any questions about the pigeons, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We wish you a successful 2021 season.

Best wishes Olaf Gehrken
