Harold Zwiers, Den Ham

For more than 20 years an absolute National champion and super fancier on all races over 900 km !!!
On all flights above 900 km (morning and afternoon release) he belongs to the Topclass of The Netherlands. It is not entirely unimportant that he not only races well with the pigeons himself, but also that other fanciers race very well with Harold’s pigeons or with descendants from the pigeons of the man from the municipality of Twenterand. After all, his inbred colony can be crossed very well.
Just look at the references of the past few years at http://www.haroldzwiers.nl/references/

The base pigeons:
The basis of the Harold Zwiers pigeon stock consists of descendants of the top pair “1336” x “Morsie”.  This couple has for the most part been flooded with the blood of Jan Theelen pigeons. The “1336” is entirely a Theelen and “Morssie” is 50% Theelen and the other half is daughter of the 1st Nat. Perpignan from Jan Walpot paired to a son of the 1st Nat. St. Vincent from the famous Van Zelderen Bross. Almost every pigeon in the loft of Harold  carries the blood of this foundationcouple. Direct children with large breeding values ​​are “Rooie Japie”, “Benjamin”, “Rosco”, “Yolanthe” and the two top racers “Limoosje” and “Zilverstar”. Of course, other blood has been crossed through it. Especially the pigeons from Jelle Jellema, with whom Harold has been breeding together for years, are doing well against the pigeons from Harold’s breeding couple. But also the pigeons from Marcel Diesvelt from Didam, Arjan Beens, Gerrit and Jaco van Nieuwamerongen (from Jo, 1st Nat. Mont de Marsan and the top breeder “Carteus Giant”) are doing very well in combination with the base-strain of Harold.


Top notations of direct children of “1336 x Morsie” father and mother of: 1, 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 9, 9 NPO/VNCC.
In the second and further generation, offspring won at the loft of Harold and mony other succesful fanciers with the pigeons of Zwiers: 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4, 5, 5, 6, 6, 6, 6, 6, 6, 7, 7, 8, 8, 8, 8, 8, 8, 9, 9, 9, 10, 10, 10, 11, 12, 13, 13, 13, 13, 14, 14, 14, 14, 14, 15 NPO/VNCC but also 19th International Barcelona!


Among Harold’s best ZLU pigeons one can notice quite often “De Deugniet” in the blood. This cock performed very well himself, he won among others the 1st Montauban in zone 3 of the NU (5th National), but his descendants seem to be even better. Together with “De Deugniet” from H. Schoolderman, Harold still has some other descendants of his old marathonpigeons from the beginning. These are Van de Wegens via Anton Ruitenberg. The pigeons from Harold can be characterized as “super soft plume, well balanced, medium sized with sparkling eyes”. “De Deugniet” is among others the father of the “Jonge Barcelona” and “Yaika” who won 19th International Barcelona 2014 against 20669 pigeons.

“Rooie Japie” is the successor of his father “1336”, he is currently the new #1 superbreeder as he is the father of among others:
“Red Dawn” 1st National S3 Periqueux 7.102 pigeons
“Red Thunder” 7th, 12th, 36th NPO
“Red Lady” out 9th National Bergerac
• Grandfather of “Rooie Annie” 2nd, 6th, 14th NPO
