The Golden Breeding Hens

Most of the Janssen fans are familiar with all the Janssen legends, such as "Oude Merckx", "Jonge Merckx", "019", "Velo", "Geeloger", "Scherpe" "Rocket", "Lichte" ... But, very few people know the strength of Janssens lies in the strength of their breeding hens. Among many great Janssen breeding hens, there is a very special hen "Kweekduif van '67", she was first mated to "De Oude Merckx". Together they produced:

                                        73-6736019 BC C --| 67-6282031 BC C

                                                          |
                                                          |
                                                          |-"Kweekduif van '67"
                                                            67-6282053 BC H

Mike Ganus' "969" is known as the best breeding son of the "019" in the U.S. but do you know "969" is also bred from a son mated to a grand daughter of "Kweekduif van '67". That makes "969" a half brother to Janssen brother's "Jonge Rocket".

"Kweekduif van '67" was used as mate to all the best Janssen super stars, when mated to "Jonge Merckx `70" they produced B75-6743170, he became the father of Ad Schaerlenken 1985 National Orleans winner. Amazingly Ad won National Orleans again in 1996 with a grand son of the 1985 winner, linebred using the same Breeding Method (It's a story for another time).

"Kweekduif van '67" when mated to a son of "Jonge Scherpe" produced another super breeding hen "Schoon Blauw `76":

                                        67-6282053 BC H


"Schoon Blauw `76" 76-6129245 when mated to "Jonge Merckx" produced the famous "Zitter". Her daughter "Lichte Van `81" also a very good racer and breeder.

"Lichte Van `81" 81-6116683 Notice the strong forehead and broad chest.

"Kweekduif van '67" when mated to "Goede Jaarling `72" produced another super hen "Klein Blauw `78:

                    "Jonge Merckx"
                  |-70-6243257
                  |                   |-"Goede Jaarling `72"
80-6305981 BC H --|                   | 72-6112522 BC C
                  |-"Klein Blauw `78"-|
80-6307776 BC H --| 78-6121300 B H    |
                                      |-"Kweekduif van '67"
                                        67-6282053 BC H

"Klein Goede Blauw" 78-6121300

The "Klein Blauw `78" was a very good racer and a striking beauty, she was the mate to "Jonge Merckx van `70". Most of the present day Janssens are down from this pair.

After completed the Janssen book, Ad Schaerlenken received a gift, B80-6305981 Blue Check Hen Daughter of "Jonge Merckx" and "Klein Blauw `78", from Janssen brothers. B80-6305981 was later sold to Mike Ganus and was the mate to "969". This is a Method #2 mating, and again a grand son mated a grand daughter of "Kweekduif van '67".
