A Quintessential Expert 🌟
With over 15 years of experience and consistently strong performances, Annick is an undisputed expert in the field. From 2006 to 2016, she operated under the name Vanrenterghem - Goeteyn, but since 2017, it’s been all about Annick.

A Skyrocketing Start 🚀
How did Annick achieve unparalleled success? Imagine kick-starting your venture with the best pigeons available at the time. Yes, we're talking about the legendary Vandenabeele pigeons from Dentergem. Pair that with Annick’s boundless motivation, and you have a recipe for triumph.

Precision Organization and Impeccable Timing ⏰
In Annick's lofts, every detail is meticulously planned. The pigeons are always in peak condition, the lofts are impeccably clean, and schedules are rigorously followed. Nothing is left to chance.

Breeding Pairs Made of Dreams 💖
The real magic happens in the breeding lofts. Take, for example, the pair "Captain Blue x Nancy." “Captain Blue” is a magnificent inbred son of the world-famous “Bliksem.” These two are responsible for establishing several foundational lines that have produced many other super pigeons. This is the Vandenabeele bloodline at its best.

Selection and Quality 🏆
Annick is also highly selective when it comes to pigeon conformation. They must not only perform well but also feel perfect in hand. The result? Offspring that are, without exception, beautiful pigeons, with soft feathers, expansive wings, and a robust frame.

hello Josh, I feed with Aidi and you can follow the feeding system on the Aidi website. Top quality and very varied food, that’s what I like. The pigeons can choose what they need.
Kindest Regards Annick


Hi Josh, thanks for your comment, I forwarded your request to Annick.


Hi Jan – very interesting – As I am on outdated Grandfather not using instagram or facebook could you kindly ask Annick to describe her/their feeding for both Oldbirds and Youngbirds whilst training and Racing. Type of food and how they gauge when to stop feeding the birds.
Kind regards
