The family of pigeons is built from the old Jan Aardens - Ko Van Dommelen has the direct line back to the right birds and owns one of the best performing Jan Aarden family.
The father Wim Van Dommelen started this colony - and the birds are still the same. Dark chequers with fantastic "golden" eyes, soft feathers and strong bodies.

The foundation cock no. 1 was the "Oud Brommertje" - a topracer 14 prizes from St. Vincent and Dax. But also the "De Cools Doffer" that Ko Van Dommelen got as a gift from Jan Cools from his foundation couple "Zwartje" x "19" was a fantastic pigeon. The father of "Zwartje" was a direct Jan Aarden grandson of the "Zevenendertig" the world famous grandson of the legend "Zilvervosje".
On top a grandson from another legend "De Dolle" landed on the breeding loft of Van Dommelen.

The newest foundation hen has to be "t Casje Vermeulen" from Cas van de Graaff & Sons - she is mother of the 2 times Nationalwinner (1. Nat. Lourdes + 1. Nat. Dax) "De Paarsborst" - now cock no. 1 at Piet De Vogel - a sister of "De Paarsborst" is the mother of this years 1. National Narbonne.
