The House of Aarden
Witbuik Aarden (NL06 1014739)

This handsome-looking, rare grandson of The Witbuik was purchased direct from Batenburg van de Merwe, through the Pipa auctions. Fanciers from Japan, Taiwan, Belium and The Netherlands also showed interest in this fantastic pigeon, but once again The House of Aarden has purchased a top producer, no expense spared. Witbuik Aarden is sire and grandsire to a host of top performance birds including Josephine, 14th. National Cahors, 10,381 birds, 873km, and Piet, 40th. National St.Vincent, 5,336 birds, 1,000km. His offspring are still in the Batenburg van de Merwe racing loft. He is medium-size in the hand, and like all my stock cocks well balanced, he is on the semi-bull system in his own breeding compartment and has been paired to some of my top Jan Aarden stock hens. Available now offspring from Witbuik Aarden, prices start from £250. each.
