CRETEN LAMBERT – ATTENHOVEN
1st NATIONAL CHATEAUROUX 18,769 YEARLINGS – FASTEST AGAINST 29,746p

Attenhoven: It's situated in the extreme South-East point of the province of Flemish Brabant, border on the province of Luik and Limburg. It's there, in the Jonker Janlaan nr. 36, that we met the 1e national Chateauroux against 18.769 yearlings and also the fastest against all 29.746 Chateauroux racers. And…it can be said…this national winner is a "beauty" in the hand. Not only build like an athlete but also a "guy with character". "Never saw a pigeon arrive with such power," Lambert says.

MOTIVATION

Was he extra motivated, was our next question and yes…with this "422", Lambert had used a special trick. Lambert continues: "The ring number of the widower that had the box above the "422" was already selected out of my list. Don't ask me why but I had the impression that my "422" (the later national winner) wanted to take over this box. But the one that was "selected out" defended his box like a professional boxer and the "422" didn't succeed to take over. Luckily I had the idea to take away the one I "selected out", of the loft and the "422" didn't hesitate a second to expand his territory. Before basketing, he received his nest bowl in his new box and he left for Chateauroux super motivated.

At a speed of 1513, 90 m/m, the "422" was the only one of all 29.746 Chateauroux racers that got over 1.500 m/m. The 2nd fastest of Chateauroux reached the speed of 1495, 39 m/m!

PURE HOBBY

To Lambert, a very calm man, the pigeon sport is a pure hobby. "I started to race the pigeons in 1997 and the base of my colony is formed by direct pigeons of Verbruggen Gommaire (Scherpenheuvel) , Deno-Herbots (Leefdaal), De Mesmaecker Clement (St. Ulriks Kapelle) , Vos Jennes (Diest) and Louis Van Paesschen (Humbeek). My start in the sport was super because already in 1998, I became 1st National champion KBDB beginners.

I started the season of 2015 with a group of 56 widowers and at this moment, only 36 are left. I had many lost because my team of 30 yearling widowers didn't get learned as a youngster. I play till and with Argenton II and afterwards, not one feather will be put in the basket. I don't put my energy in my young birds.
The widowers were paired on December 20th and they could raise one youngster. After these youngsters were weaned, widowhood started immediately. The first time they saw their hens again was half of April, when the first races were on the programme.

I don't race the hens, I tried this for about 2 seasons but the results weren't satisfying.

THE SYSTEM

You won't find any secrets about the system I use. I prefer the mixtures of Beyers and I follow the 3-phases system. The widowers have to race every two weeks. The first week after their arrival, they get "Recup" and next it's "Opbouw" to eat and the last days before basketing, I use "Energy" + corn.
On medical level, I follow the advice of Herbots Raf. Before the national race from Chateauroux, they were cured for 2 days against cancer and 2 days for their heads. The by-products I use, like Omega Oil, Optimix, etc. are also bought with Raf Herbots.

Lambert, congratulations and enjoy your national victory!
