Harold Zwiers:


Auction of pigeons with multiple generations of top pigeons



In this sale you have the chance to get a beautiful youngster from the top fancier Harold Zwiers of Den Ham. On all races over 900 km (morning and afternoon release) he is among the top of the Netherlands. It is not unimportant that he not only races well with the pigeons himself, but also that other fanciers race well with his birds or with descendants from pigeons from the man from the municipality of Twenterand. After all, his strain can be crossed very well. Just look at the references of the past years Do you also want to make a nice prize, then you now have a chance to buy a nice and charming pigeon.




The Basis

The basis of the pigeon strain of Harold comes from descendants of the top couple ‘1336’ x ‘Morsie.’ This couple is for the most part flooded with the blood of pigeons of Jan Theelen. ‘De 1336’ is entirely Theelen and ‘Morssie’ is 50% Theelen and the other half is the daughter of 1e nat. Perpignan of Jan Walpot and a son of 1e nat. St. Vincent of Van Zelderen. From this couple stems all the pigeons in the loft of Harold.


Here are the top prizes of the descendants of ” DE 1336 X MORSIE” Father and mother of 1,1,2,4,6,7,9,9, NPO/VNCC

Further descendants won NPO/VNCC 1,1,1,1,1,1,1,2,2,2,2,2,2,3,3,3,3,3,4,4,4,5,5,6,6,6,6,6,6,7,7,8,8,8,8,8,8,8,9,9,9,10,10,10,11,12,13,13, 13,13,14,14,14,14,14,15,16,16,16,16,16,17,18,18,18,19,20,20,21,21,22,22,22,22,23,24 ( 19e International Barcelona ) and so on

She was coupled to Red Dawn, who won 1e National Perigueux 2017. A youngster of this couple is in Lot 1.





Top racer and top breeder De Deugniet (see Lot 9)

Certain pigeon fanciers tend to look at pedigrees rather than performance. With one of the top racers and breeders of Harold, 'De Deugniet', the pedigree is not very special, but the performance and the offspring are great. He won himself o.a. 1e VNCC and 1e of the NU ZONE 3 on Montauban. Further he is father of Harolds Barcelona pigeons (yes ... several) and of the Ace Pigeon Afternoon Release Marathon Noord 2018. De Deugniet is o.a. the father of De Jonge Barcelona, Yaika (19e International Barcelona of 20.669 pigeons 2014 and 9e International hens of 5.550 pigeons). ‘De Deugniet’ won himself:

1e Montauban VNCC against 1.020 pigeons, 1e NU Zone 3 against 1.461 pigeons, 5e national against 5.293 pigeons, 5e NU total against 7.730 pigeons. ‘De Deugniet’ is (grand)father of pigeons with the following prizes: 19e International Barcelona 2014 against 20.669 pigeons (1.278 km), 18e national Narbonne 2015 against 5.338 pigeons, 27e national Orange 2012 against 4.689 duiven, 37e nationaal Marseille 2016 against 3.320 duiven, 11e Department 9 Perigueux 2016 against 2.356 pigeons, 1e and 7e NU Zone 1 Cahors 2017 against 1.951 pigeons and 3e Department 9 Limoges 2018 against 1.319 pigeons.

The father of ‘De Deugniet’ is ‘De Super 483’ of Schoolderman, who was 20e National Tarbes and 57e National St. Vincent.

The 12-1164278 is a granddaughter of ‘De Deugniet’. She made a big contribution to the Super Cup victory of the Marathon Noord last season. She was entered as the 1st nominated in Barcelona and Perpignan and won 2 prizes. The 12-278 is a daughter of ‘Tarzan’, a good son of ‘De Deugniet’ with ‘Zilverstar’. ‘Zilverstar’ comes from the base couple ‘1336’ with ‘Morssie’ and won marathon race in the VNCC. In 2016 is 12-78 didnt race, because she had something in mind. In the surrounding years, 2015, 2017 and 2018 she always won a prize at Barcelona.

Also a points gainer in the Marathon Noord on Marseille (the 15-255) is a descendant of ‘De Deugniet’. Also the nestbrother (the 15-256, 2e entered on Dax with 97e prize in Marathon Noord) did a little bit in to bag the Supercup victory.

The descendants of 'De Deugniet' were also responsible for the Championship of the Morning Release in the year 2014 at the Marathon Noord. Harold was then allowed to enter the highest step of the honorary podium.


Champion Pigeon Afternoon Release (see Lot 11)
With the ‘Jonge Deugniet’ (‘De 219’ of 2015) Harold had the champion pigeon of the afternoon release in the Marathon Noord. The father of this topper is ‘De Deugniet’. De mother is ‘Maud’. She comes from ‘Zwart Goud’ of Jelle Jellema with‘Inteelt Kuif’. This hen comes from super breeder ‘Rooie Japie’ with his mother ‘Morssie’. ‘De Jonge Deugniet’ won in the Marathon Noord 43e St. Vincent, 19e Dax and 43e Bergerac. He beat a topper from Henk van de Wielen from Beneden Leeuwen. National in sector 3 ‘De Jonge Deugniet’ won the following prizes: 98e national St. Vincent, 38e national Dax and 136e national Bergerac. A fantastic honors list of a great cock. He is raced in widowhood, so he can compete in the three races for the Marathon Noord easier.



Tarzan is also a son of De Deugniet and Zilverstar, one of the pearls of the base couple 1336 and Morssie. A child of him in Koop 10.
