Hello, I am Oscar DeVries and I am 50 years young.
We live in Winchester, Ontario, Canada. Winchester is about 30 minutes South of Ottawa, the capital city of Canada.
I have been interested in pigeon racing for most my life, starting as a junior member in my native country of the Netherlands. My wife Linda has also been around racing pigeons all her life and she even raced her own birds before we met.
We are very involved in many aspects of the pigeon sport and we attend many different functions involving racing pigeons. We also import and sell Beyers high quality racing pigeon feed and products from Europe.
We race our old birds on widowhood with hens and cocks but not double widowhood, the partners of our race birds always stay home. Our young birds are raced on the darkening system which we separate after the 1st or 2nd race and race them on the so called door system. We prefer all one day distance races, which are from 150 to 8/900 km.
As we only race one day races we have a preference for the Eijerkamp Janssen, van Loon and Heremans, these 3 families have been very successful for us in old and young bird racing.
Canada encompasses a very large geographical area and racing pigeon fanciers on average live far apart, therefore pigeons have to be able to race considerable distances on their own. The fanciers also have to be willing to drive greater distances to go to their clubs for shipping and strike off.
Our goal is to help bring some of the highest quality modern day racing pigeons available in Europe today, to be easily available for fanciers in North America. I can offer advice on any of the Eijerkamp pigeon families that costumers may be interested in and explain the whole process of quarantine, costs and time involved with shipping from the Eijerkamp lofts in the Netherlands to theirs, the correct and legal way.
