The man George Busschaert died in 1982.Its true he did import birds and when brought in they were Busschaerts.However he never bought a yb off anyone to sell.He was a great stockman and he very often not only paired bird A to bird B. But he would pair bird B,s brother to bird A,s sister.Red 20 is not a sister to Pluto.Plutos only brother is his nest mate 69 320910.Shy lass the Danny Challis hen was not bred by George she was bred by Tom Larkins.Also Georges wife was Neytens sister.Georges best bird was a check  cock de 85 nestmate to ladybird.Sadley de85 hit wires killed outright.

If anyone wants some great reads and photo's of Gearge, and his mates who flew, plus methods etc. pm me your Email address. Have seen most articles like on here and others times. But these are realy different and rare. Only ever know of the one that has them. A Jimmy Ried, now in B.C. Canada, formerly of Scotland.

Very true Buscharrt pigeons have stood the test of time and still continue to do so.

I think one of the strongest colonies of old original Buscharrt lines belongs to a member of this site and cant wait to try them this year. :)

find some up the write up facts different to what i was told g busheart came over to england to set up a textile factory his family owned met and became friends with Gill duncan went into partnership and brought the birds over from belg  dominated the kent area sold up and went back to belg  gill Duncan was a greyhound trainer   Tom larkins became  buschaerts agent in this country  corbetts birds came from Tom Larkins
probally the top breeder in the n e England  where the partnership of Soderland and Bradley  they bred many winners and breeders of winners   parkside superman   and probally one of the best the great Quosimodo of Luke Coulson  and Thomson  i am sure Jimmy Bambling  could go alot further aswell  these are just a very small insight to what was bred from them
the truth is here not out there

Bakes mine are a blend of all of those lines and to be fair mine are better the further they go as i am not interested in short races and as i told you i dont keep any oldbirds that have not flown channel at least twice as yearlings the blacks have been most consistent over the years and have had only bird on day 3 times

Well our Fed's top flyer, in the Fed and Alga, and certainly at the distance, breeds so many, about 24 y/b's and as I've said before, returns spare youngsters etc. each season to the original guy he had thes off. Yes of course, as alwas gives to any needy fancier. This year he's only breeding 12 tops... buying again from Louella as he needs introduction again he feels. Yes has also very often bought in from there and had great results. Yes has tried others over the last 47 years, but none he says have ever been anywhere near as good as the Bussearts. Yes he is in the position to buy he best. But as he says, Louella's are a fraction onf the price and are as good as any. Yes the other sauce he started last time with devastioning effects were intro's from a good fancier in Newark.

Its true Luella Busschaerts are a fraction of the price but if your pal paid that little bit extra he would do murder, the Pearson and Dransfield Busschaerts are 10 times better.My speciallist subject on mastermind was Remi George Busschaert.Ask me any question    on George

In a competition of excellance there is only a cigarett papers width between one loft and another.John Tray, John Lynas and the Knighton family aces everyone but to suggest not being able to hold candles to them is icing the cake a smidge.The original Kavanagh Busschaerts were pure.But the better ones were crosses FVW X Bussaerts from John Soderland.Thats also true of the mink getting into Pert Hindmarshes loft.
