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.
The basis of the breeding philopshy of the men from Zuidveen is good with good. The good lines are crossed and that has had good results for years. With the breeding it is not so much about their construction. This is because the men do not have pigeons with a poor construction. Their pigeons are characterized with a good structure, well muscled, a tail that stays closed and a wing without long forearms.
