This husband (Reinder) and wife (Christianne) combination from Westerhaar flies very hard since they made the switch to the marathon races in 2002. But on the program flights they were already performing very well, like in 1999 the 2 also won the last overall (Generaal) championship of the province! The family Niks started with pigeons in 1985, in the beginning together with their son Raymond (who moved to the Leidijk in Westerhaar – Raymond is also very (!) succesful with his own pigeons – where he now lives with his wife and children) and later as a husband and wife combination.

Their strain of pigeons is mainly based on the pigeons from Harold Zwiers’ “red gold” (Jan Theelen) crossed with pigeons from a.o. Koele & zn (Arjan Beens) and Robin Bakhuis.

1st Provincial Marathon Champion in 2019 and 2020
