Queen L, it can be argued, who as a youngster scored 1st National. La Souterraine

Against 16,297 birds has turned out to become, the most important matriarch in the history of Belgium racing pigeons. I do not claim that the following lists are      complete however they certainly paint an incredible portrait of breeding success at the very highest level of National competition in Belgium young bird racing.

The results achieved by the Roziers “Queen L”   line pigeons at the National Level make it impossible to ignore. The world’s most exclusive racing pigeon auction house has been tracking Jelle Results from the very beginning and finally in late 2017 PIPA and Jelle Roziers agreed to an exclusive 5 year contract confirming their belief that Jelle Roziers is without doubt the best young bird racer in all of Belgium.

PIPA SIGNS EXCLUSIVE CONTRACT WITH JELLE ROZIERS

Jelle Roziers signed a full exclusive contract to work with PIPA for the next 5 years. He is considered to be the best young bird racer in Belgium. PIPA and Jelle are looking forward for this next big step.

Jelle Roziers signed a full exclusive contract to work with PIPA for the next 5 years. He is considered to be the best young bird racer in Belgium. PIPA and Jelle are looking forward for this next big step.

I find it very interesting to note that  the “Queen L” line of Jelle Roziers is being crossed successfully with  performance pigeons of various strains.

Jelle Roziers has arranged some very interesting mating’s for the 2018 breeding season all his pairings are carefully studied in a continuous effort to always improve.

Jelle Roziers in the Fall of 2017 spent an afternoon with David and Anna Clausing at David’s new home near Spring Hill,Florida.Though seperated by almost a generation in time it is so interesting to note that the Houben Family played a significant role in the lives of both of these gentlemen.Additionally the Houben racing pigeon genetics also played and continues to play  an enormous role in both of their colonies.I am sure that these two great fanciers will have many stories to exchange about their personal experiences with Jeff, Luc and Nadian Houben. David Clausing made his first trip to see Jeff Houben and family in 1993 and his final visit was in 2001.Jelle made his first call to Jeff Houben in 1997 at the age of 14.Their paths certtainly passed at the Houben household. So this photo of Jelle,David and Anna takes place 20 years after Jelle’s first phone call to Jeff Houben.David built one of the most successful One Loft Racing lines in the world based on Houben genetics and.Interesting to note the Clausing’s “Never Say Die” won the Sun City Million Dollar Race in 2003 and Jelle’s “Queen L” was born in 2004 and by 2005 was being mated to Houben’s exceptional “Pinocchio”, “Rivaldo” and others.It was,I believe ,inevitable that these two exceptional fanciers should meet and exchange information that only they would have access to!

The more I researched and communicated with fanciers worldwide the more I was fascinated to discover that without exception all of the people I contacted loved the  “Queen L” line but they all were, to a man taken,  with Jelle’s pursuit of excellence, his uncompromising integrity, his dedication , his openness to learning new ways, new methods, new approaches, his humility, and finally his total dedication to family, Jelle, they all had concluded was the “real deal” just an wonderfully honest and engaging young family man who when it came to his pigeons was without a doubt an “old soul”. No pompousness, no chest beating, no braggadocio just a wholesome young man at the very top of his game in the world’s most competitive racing pigeon venue.

Tony Melucci Jan 25 2018

I took the opportunity to call Tony in Florida and was delighted to speak to him as I had not seen Tony personally since the fall of 1995. In 1993 Tony drove to Toronto to deliver several gift birds to the “Toronto Sick Kids Charity Auction “that I undertook founded and hosted at the five star, Toronto Hilton Hotel. Through his generosity and those of other great American fanciers ( Horst Hackemer, Bob Kinney, and others) we donated all of the proceeds to the hospital. Tony is rightly called in many circles “The Chairman of The Board”. He is a gentleman, now in his 90th year and the reality is that he was and  respected across Europe by the very “Best of the Best” and still is. I have enormous respect for Mr. Tony Melucci and in that regard I called to seek insight into a young Belgian fancier “Jelle Roziers”. Tony knows pigeons and he knows people, so what he says herein is important to take note of:

“Without question Jelle is a star,…a young family man with an incredible future ahead of him… he will be a star, and his star will keep rising for a very, very long time. His future, I predict will be a great one and Jelle will one day be rated amongst the greats of our sport. I am so pleased to know him and to consider him a friend…Jelle is kind hearted person and an outstanding young man. Though,  a young man his expertise with  his birds is certainly that of an “old soul”. Jelle has incredible technical expertise in the preparation of his  racing pigeons  to successfully compete in top national races, but beyond this he has true insight into what constitutes a superior racing pigeon and how then to propagate that superiority through the generations. There is no doubt that Jelle’s “Queen L” is the matriarch of a truly pre-potent maternal line that is set to affect the future of every fancier that has been fortunate enough to acquire descendants of this unique foundation hen. The crossing of this unique genetic package with the Houben genetics was an inspired move that, I believe, will impact our sport for generations” ~ Tony Melucci personal communication

Anyone who follows the success of Jelle Roziers in Belgium and Geert Kolvenbag here in North America can see the value of the Queen L family. 

In April I spent a week in Belgium with Jelle Roziers. It was a real treat to visit Jelle and handle his superb family of pigeons. I was very impressed to say the least. This year Jelle had an amazing season winning the first national race against 38,000 young birds in a release that included yearling and old birds totaling 52,000 birds. Jelle’s bird “GUST” was the fastest of them all! Could it get any better than this? Yes it can and did with Jelle also winning the NATIONAL ACE YOUNG BIRD OF ALL BELGIUM and this was with a different bird he has since named “NEW QUEEN L”.

Canadian Bill weima on his 2017 visit to Jelle Roziers an eye opening experience and Bill will be returning in 2018 to watch some of the national races in person.

As luck would have it I have a brother to NEW QUEEN L and he was in fact a gift from Jelle that came with the BROTHER JOLIE L that I purchased in the PIPA season finale.

What luck! A full brother to the national ace young bird of Belgium.

Now we talk about our super 770. She was the best record racing hen that we have ever flown here at Silvercreek. She is a fantastic specimen as well. Her father is a seriously inbred Hercules cock (6 times) and her mother is our GIGI.

GIGI was also a gift from our good friend Geert Kolvenbag and is one of what have become the famous 3 sisters. They are daughters of the super breeding hen Jolie L and are inbred to Queen L herself.  Geert has also had an amazing year in the one loft races and Jolie L and her children are the source of it all.

….  Gigi also is the mother of our 884 who in turn bred the 4th place bird in the recent AU convention race”. and it has given me great pleasure .” ~ Bill Weima personal communication

“…I’m glad to see that you’re writing an article about Jelle, he is deserving of everything he has accomplished in a short amount of time.

He is on top of his game as a Young Bird champion!

I first met Jelle at the 2012 U convention here in Los Angeles. We immediately struck up a friendship, at that time we decided to partner up in one loft races.

At the convention there were some representatives from the global international OLR in Mexico. 

Jelle agreed to send to some Young Birds to the race. Jelle proceeded to send me a cock bird, Belg 12-6301275 ” Sunny Wall ” A grandson of Queen L and a son of Sonny Queen. Sunny Queen is the mother to Seven, Best young bird in seven national races 2013 for Jelle

Sunny Wall proceeded to breed the first place final winner global international 350 miles also first place semi- final winner 300 miles

Sunny Wall is grand -father to 14 Skyline 140 that won for me the Coast to Coast $30,000 first place 112 lofts and 2,058 birds

Jelle birds Excel at 300 to 400 miles as young birds, as proven by the birds that I have and others as well.

Jelle is as a dedicated a pigeon flyer as you will find. His attention to every detail is unsurpassed, he has a relentless pursuit to be the best. Tremendous character and integrity, always can count on him for advice, he’s always willing to share his knowledge on the birds”~ Juan Gomez personal communication

“I bought my first 3 Roziers pigeons in 2011 on line via an auction in Florida. I still have one of these three:  The King of Kennett (Brother to the King of Belgium) both grandsons from Shinji San and Queen L.  Some of the history of getting Roziers birds is described in the article that was published in the RPD with the title “The Story of the Three Sisters. These famous Three Sisters were bred from Blauwe Jelle and Jolie L and therefore have 4X Queen L in their pedigrees. Each sister bred one or more winner in their first year of breeding at three different lofts (Bill Weima, John Guttierez and Kolvenbag & Son.

I have 5 direct birds from Jelle; King of Kennett was bought in a Florida auction on line, Jolie L and Blauwe Jelle were bought directly at Jelle, Tulsa was bought in an auction at the AU Convention and Jupiler is a yearling that arrived just this winter came directly from Jelle. I only race in OLRs, I am not able to race from my home due to neighborhood restrictions I can list you many results.  I attach the 2017 OLR results to this document as an appendix.  One of the results I am very proud of is the 41st in the final 336 mile MDPR  race, with only 43 day birds from 2161 birds shipped by the King of Blues, he came home in semi dark when there was thunder and lightning.  This bird is a real smart bird with a lot of character.  In his first year of breeding he already bred me an equal 1st 350mile winner.

Great, honest and straightforward person, always learning, during his visit he was checking out what supplements I was giving, but also shared what he gives to his breeders. He is Very easy to communicate with.  Great fancier !” ~ Geert Kolvenbag personal communication

APPENDIX:  OLR results

 Appendix OLR

2017 OLR results by Kolvenbag & Son

“Of the 49 Top 10% positions won, 48 have Queen L blood in them.  Of these 46 have Jolie L in them.

With the arrival of Jolie L a revolution has taken place in my small breeding loft.   The Three Sisters, all three, produced winning young birds in their first year of breeding. AND the King of Blues showed in the MDPR, I knew I had a good one.

So decided to adjust my plan to build a loft around Jolie L. I put all the children and grand-children   I had in the breeding loft.  Then adhere to my principle of:

  • Breed a lot
  • Race them all
  • Race them all the way
  • Select hard

I have no room to keep extras, breed for stock or for sales.  I am pure focused in breeding for OLR races.  The decision to focus on Jolie L was a good one.  In 2018 I have 6 children and 9 grandchildren in the breeding loft with 18 pair.

While I pay close attention to the mtDNA while choosing matings, I have also come to believe that there must be a success factor on the X chromosome that plays a role in breeding good one loft racing pigeons.

In other words, Jolie L is super and beyond expectation !  I think that the Queen L birds are very smart and are able to maintain a superb health easier than the average other bird.  Two key factors to be successful on OLRs I think.” ~ Geert Kolvenbag personal communication

“In 2012 I bought my first hen that was bred by P&J Roziers band  Belg 2010 6024129 from Fred Goodchild. this hen was bred to a Janssen cock and entered into the Edmonton Classic One Loft Race in 2013, the Young hen cu 2013 1301 who scored 1st at the final.

“…I sent a picture of the pigeon we call Penny Lane which won a very good money race here in Australia in 2016 ($30,000) which is bred directly off of one of Jelle’s pigeons we imported in 2014.

We mated Jelle’s cock bird to one of our best performing one loft race lines we call The Fine Blend pigeons, they are a Houben/Gabby lines, the pair had 6 youngsters that year and one cock was in the top ten twice with 2,000 birds and another 15th federation plus another hen was 10th federation from 300 miles. “Penny Lanes” effort is the stand out not just for the money but as we were one of the longest flyers she actually had to fly the final 60 kms on her own to win by just 37 seconds and must have flown over water to make that time or she was way out in front and followed the coast line.

I first heard of the Roziers when I imported a couple of birds from Luc Houben in 2012 one lovely cock bird was off of Luc’s Comos a son of Young Artiest who was paired to a Daughter of Queen L, this was pure luck as I we were just trying to get as close to the Young Artiest blood as we could.

This pigeon we called Di Vinci and he was an instant success with his first youngsters winning good races against very good opposition. His children have also bred on so we quickly worked out that the Rozier birds put something extra into the Houben’s and once we researched their results it was obvious that we had to bring that blood into Australia…” ~John Shore personal communication

Jelle has been a pleasure to deal with and it was fantastic to have him at our home recently.

“I have come to know Jelle Roziers over some years now.  I have visited with him in Belgium and been to his home and seen both his racing and breeding operation.  I also spend time with him when he comes to the States.  Jelle is a very down to earth individual.  His success does not seem to have gone to his head.  He is a very even keeled guy with a great sense of humor and I like him a lot, like spending time with him, and am glad to call him “friend.”  I can tell that he is a “thinker” and obviously a hard worker with the birds.  In 2017 while visiting him in Belgium I did purchase a pair of youngsters from a good young pair in his breeding loft.  I just got the two birds about two weeks ago and they are very nice.  I am very pleased with them.  I was extremely impressed with Jelle’s birds when I visited him in February of 2017 and he showed me a good number of his breeders.  My impression at the time was that he had one of the most impressive groups of birds I have seen in Belgium in some years.  It is no wonder to me that he is having such great success in the races…” ~ Ed Minvielle, Personal correspondence

Jelle Roziers has been visiting the United States regularly since I believe 2011. He attends the American Conventions and tours lofts across the USA both big and small operations. He is always searching to improve, and wisdom can be found everywhere, you just need to look and more important listen. Jelle loves America and Americans and has given the American flag a place of honor in his home. The above displayed American Flag was actually flown over the United States Capitol at the request of The Honorable Lisa Murkowski United States Senator and this flag was flown to commemorate the friendship of Jelle Roziers and Drew Lesofski.

The American Flag displayed in a place of Honor in Jelle's home in Belgium. This flag actually was flow over the United States Capitol and was a gift to Jelle Roziers from American pigeon journalist and friend Drew Lesofski.

There are so very many  successful fanciers that have Jelle Roziers pigeons that could have been included in this article, but it would have required a book to do so, a few that quickly come to mind are Michael Steele of the UK, Marek Trazaska of Poland, Gero & Evelin Dijk of Holland, Peter Rembregts of Holland, Peter Alisher of Germany, Peral Javier of Spain, Eric Alvarez of the USA, Richard Pearrino of the USA, Andy Laranzakis of the USA, John Marles of the USA and so many more. All of the above referenced fanciers are fierce competitors always seeking to improve their odds of winning and they have sourced “Queen L” genetics to assist them in their efforts to top the race sheets weekly.

Jelle Family

Finally I end this article with the most important photo of all. Jelle Roziers the man who developed a family of world class racing pigeons, but more a man who takes the time to work hard to cultivate a very happy family with a “world class Mother and Father and three lovely children!”  Jelle in my eyes you are a true Champion!
