Will & Falco Ebben: Small loft, great results!

The uncle-nephew partnership Will & Falco Ebben from Leeuwen (The Netherlands) is racing at the highest level in their province for more than 20 years now. 

When they first bought pigeons at Ad Schaerlaeckens in 1998, the results were getting better and better. Will & Falco Ebben always stayed loyal to Ad Schaerlaeckens and still know where to find him when they need fresh blood in their strain. The Schaerlaeckens pigeons from the past and the present form the basis of their strain.

Since the existence of the partnership in 2002 to 2019, Will and Falco Ebben have raced only 12 pairs of old pigeons from Will's address on total widowhood. In addition, about 20 to 25 youngsters were raced from Falco's address as well as from Will's address. Starting in 2020, a maximum of 16 pairs of old pigeons are also being raced from Falco's address. With these numbers they dared to take on the biggest and strongest competitors.
