Nouwen - Paesen Belgium.
Here we have something very special for the Long Distance enthusiasts. On offer are 10 superbly bred birds bred by Nouwen- Paesen from the best of their long distance marathon family. These pigeons are based on the old original Cattrysse bloodlines that have kept these fanciers at the very top of their game since the 1960s. The Cattrysse pigeons were well known for excelling on very hard days especially from the distance and would turn up when nobody else had seen any.
The modern day stars of this family are Super 48 and Narbonne. Super 48 was the Best international Ace Pigeon of Barcelona between 2012 and 2014 wining the Gold Wing Barcelona, 1st Provincial 1,598 birds, 6th National Barcelona 8,764 birds, 25th International Barcelona 21,169 birds. Super 48 is now owned by Mark Gilbert (Southfield Lofts) and is now proving to be a fantastic breeder and is the sire of 1st National BICC Perpignan 2017 and 1st National BICC Barcelona 2018.
