The Limburg Brothers is a household name in the Marathon pigeon world. Who doesn’t know the Super Van Geel, The Spirit, Limbo Boy and Octopussy. A great family that not only Gerard and John created, but that has strengthened many top lofts. Here you should think of men like Arjan Beens, Kramer-Ouwehand and most recently the comb. Hengst-Provoost, who won 1e National St. Vincent in sector 1. In short, a strain that colors the results of the past, but certainly also in the present. Winning very recently 1e and 2e national Aurillac, 1e NPO Ruffec, 2e NPO Perigueux and 6e NPO Limoges.
The basis of the strain of the Limburg Brothers is formed with pigeons from Martha van Geel, Jan Theelen, Hermans and Wijnands. The characteristics of these pigeons that Gerard and John breed consists of strong pigeons with content, strong will and perseverance, in which the color “red” is abundantly present.
