At home, with our Romanian “Janssen”




12. Given your wide experience in pigeon sport, what piece of advice would you pass to a young pigeon fancier?


-         There are 3 main aspects in pigeon sport: the pigeon, the method and the loft, or back to front;

-         Beginners should purchase that kind of pigeon they want to populate their loft with;

-        Think over and over again about what type of pigeon you want to own, train and race (for short, middle or long-distance);





-        After deciding upon the type of pigeon, carefully study a number of technical references where are presented several pigeon fanciers, their performances over the years and if they constantly reached the top;  

-        Look for the sort and the bloodlines with the highest breeding worth;

 -       Inquire for their methods when working with breeders, their feeding system, their health care schema and ultimately how they basket the pigeons in terms of nest position;

-       Buy pigeons from a loft where there are bred pigeons with a solid genetic capacity and avoid those lofts with heterogenous pigeons in terms of genetic and phenotype features;

 -     PAY ATTENTION: A “great champion” pigeon has absolutely no breeding worth as long as it doesn’t come from the sort of champions and it will produce a great number of worthless broods, being an exception to the rule;





 -      On the contrary, if its pedigree is packed with champion bloodlines (with solid genetic background), you can put it inside the breeding section without having raced it. Thus you will have many more chances to breed worthwhile youngsters because it derives from solid ancestors;

-        So you must pay careful attention when choosing your breeders. Take good care of the couple that produced the finest offspring and never set them apart;   

-        To make a long story short: when you get the opportunity to come over a worthwhile breeding couple, don’t give up on it, such a couple is one in a million;

 -         If you are dedicated to what you’re doing, if you keep on reading special articles, if you take the advice of those older than you, top results will be knocking at your door.  


At the end of our interview, we would like to thank Mr. Vasiliu on behalf of <Romanian Racing Pigeons> visitors, and to wish him all the best and every success in pigeon sport.
