Springbok Racing Pigeons Loft

 

Springbok Racing Pigeons Loft is driven by a passionate love for its pigeons and pigeon friends worldwide. In the heart of the Garden Route, Springbok Racing Pigeons Loft is situated at Mountain View Lodge, George, Western Cape, South Africa. Gerhard and Bert forms a strong partnership, with more than 80 years of experience, in the racing pigeons sport. 

Springbok Racing Pigeons Loft is all about the privilege of being able to practice this wonderful sport together as family and friends with honesty, integrity and respect. This does not mean that Springbok Racing Pigeons Loft is not competitive. Their results speak for themselves.

 

At Springbok Racing Pigeons Loft the emphasis is on high quality pigeons.
The following qualities are very important to the owners:

1. Strong bone structure: Pigeons are placed under immense pressure during races. If the bone structure is not strong enough to absorb this pressure under extreme conditions the pigeon tires easily.

2. Muscle structure: The muscles of a pigeon works extremely hard during the races. Naturally the muscles are of great importance to the pigeon. Pigeons should have flexible lively muscles in abondance.

3. Feathers: The pigeon’s feathers, when in the hand should feel very greasy, waxy or oily. Those that have it are almost always good pigeons. Feathering is therefore very important!

4. The head: Like many other bird species racing pigeons has microscopic iron balls in thinly sliced neurons inside their inner ear.  Pigeons sense magnetic fields using these iron-rich sensory neurons. Pigeons with more volume/size tends to have more iron helping them to navigate better, especially in harsh conditions.

5. Intelligence: Pigeons must be intelligent and calm under pressure. Parrots are very intelligent birds. Pigeons with the same kind of expressions than these parrots are usually good breeders.

7. Love for the loft and their master: You get people that just want to be at their homes. They almost never go anywhere unless they have to. This very same quality is extremely important when it comes to racing pigeons. This quality has been bred into these amazing creatures for many years and drives them home.

A great example of a pigeon that possess this quality is 1390/2013. She won the club twice and took 1st and 3rd Federation and more in 2015 for us. She raced to her perch with no extra motivation. 

8. The eye: The pupil should be able to contract and expand from big to small. This protect the eye in direct sunlight and help the pigeon to see in poor light. The deeper and thicker the Iris is the better.
