Leen Boers are bred especially for sprint up to 250/300 miles but with a few exceptions winning through to 600 miles.
We house probably the best stud of the original Leen Boers, (1981/82) in the world!
We first introduced this family in 1982, the year after the original 12 pairs were introduced into the UK (we ended up, over the years, owning 8 pairs out of the 12), we haven’t found anything to beat them but it’s not past reputation we are living on. For example in 2013 they won 1st Open MNFC and an RPRA award and at the same time they won 1st Open National in Malta and double 1st National Ace Pigeon. Very few strains old or new achieve these results especially in the same year. We have reports of winners from 38 miles through to (this year, 2017) 455 miles, a nest pair won 1st Fed by over 120ypm from 41 miles and its nest brother this year (2017) won 1st Club 2nd Combine 455 miles, 400+ mile wins are rare. The 2 x 1st National wins were at 292 miles and 336 miles. We recommend up to 300 miles with one line (Craftsman) through to 360 miles. A grandson of Craftsman (Dot Head) that we raced won 14 individual 1sts up to 184 miles in 4 years, we moved before he could do his 5th year of racing.
The Leen Boers cross well with a number of families especially as we have kept them pure, unlike a lot of other people who say they have Leen Boers but they aren’t pure or original. The MNFC win was 100% pure Tumley Leen Boers the Malta one was 75% with 25% De Klak. The original Planet Brothers Van Loons had Leen Boers crossed into them.
The Leen Boers have been producing winners from the day we first introduced them to date, with many other top wins including 1st National, to those mentions above. These bloodlines are becoming very scarce but they still must perform to earn a perch in our stock loft. They do for us and many others with pigeons winning races being clocked at over 75mph. We have approximately 54 pairs of Leen Boers at stock.
