Ten of the Best Barcelona Bloodlines
Nouwen- Paesen offer for auction 10 superbly bred birds from the best of their long distance marathon family. This family 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, Super 14 and Narbonne. Super 14 is a half-brother to Super 48. Super 48 was the Best international Ace Pigeon of Barcelona between 2012 and 2014 winning the Gold Wing Barcelona, 1st Provincial 1,598 birds, 6th National Barcelona 8,764 birds, 25th International Barcelona 21,169 birds.
