This father and son partnership of Hendrik Snr and Hendrik Jnr has been the fanciers to beat in the strong Pretoria Racing Pigeon Combine (Pretoria Wedvlugduiwe Combine - PWDC) over the last few years. Their results in the Combine championship competition:
2015 – 2nd
2016 – 1st
2017 – 1st
2018 – 2nd
Their family of pigeons consists mainly of Putterie/John Lambrechts lines and their foundation breeder is SA 00/35591 “OUMAN”. He bred more than 20 winners and most stock birds are his children. Their breeding strategy is very simple; build a family of pigeons around Combine winners and when introducing new pigeons make sure they also came from a family of Combine winners.
ZA 13/04719 was bred and raced by Anton Jonck, a friend of the Huysers. Her father is “44” (ZA D10/0044), a son of OUMAN. The mother of 04719 is ZA 11/18237, a daughter of BELG 05/3224577 “BAKLEIGAT BLIKSEM” (one of Bertus’s foundation cocks) and NL 05/1499445 (Janssen hen imported from Piet Valk).
ZA 11/18237 - best results:

7 club 18 union 36 PWDC Smithfield 523km 2101p 1104mpm
After these top results the Huysers bought “44”, 18237 and 04719 from Anton and it turned out be a very good decision.  
They mated 04719 with PWF D05/1385 “FLY MACHINE” (which was their number one cock at that stage). FLY MACHINE is a son of OUMAN and won 4 x 1st club and 2 x 1st Pretoria Combine. He was also the best bird in the Combine. A son of FLY MACHINE and 04719,”MR GOLD” ZA 15/03987, raced like a champion and became 1st ace pigeon PWDC and 1st National ace pigeon in 2017.

  • 1 club 1 PWDC Richmond 758km 1403mpm 1333p
In 2017 they mated 04719 with “MR BODY” PWF 12/6720, a linebred Kannibaal cock. They became the parents of ZA 17/36138 “MR MEDALS”. Like his halfbrother MR GOLD, he also became 1st ace Pigeon PWDC and 1st National ace pigeon.

It is clear that the Huysers know what they are doing. Breeding two 1st National ace pigeons and winning the title in two consecutive years with two halfbrothers is something special.
