On the lofts of Will & Falco Ebben a maximum of twelve old bird pairs are used for racing. About twenty youngsters start the young birds season.
 
Because about sixty to seventy percent of the racing team of the Ebben’s consists of yearlings, apparently breeding twenty youngsters was not sufficient for the necessary replenishment.
 
That is why in 2005 the men decided to also bring twenty youngsters for racing purposes to Falco’s address in Boven-Leeuwen … the very best of them are transferred to the old birds loft at Will at the end of the season. In Boven-Leeuwen the youngsters are raced under the name of 'Combinatie (partnership) Ebben'.



The racing & breedingloft in Boven-Leeuwen. Here we race only youngbirds. The loft is 6,5 meters long and devided in three sections of which two are in use during the racing season (with the aviary). On this tiny loft we became 2nd National NPO champion in 2016 and 7th National NPO champion with the youngbirds in 2017!
