Interview with a Romanian Champion – Mr. Nicu Bizdrigheanu from Urziceni

-         Highlights –

 

 

 

 



RRP: How many strains do you own at present in your loft?

N. Bizdrigheanu: I have 5-6 strains. I started out with Robert Venus and Silvere Toye pigeons, with three Romanian bloodline infusions, then I brought in 6 more birds from Carmazan Ioan, and afterwards I brought from overseas pigeons from Eric Limbourg, Vanbruaene. Lately I completed my flock with Hagens, Brugemann and Wijnands pigeons, with Aarden blood at their basis. But the most newcomers are from Eijerkamp.    

 

 

 

 

 

RRP: Which is the strain that brought you the greatest satisfaction?



N. Bizdrigheanu: The Robert Venus pigeons. They are super birds. I’m also pleased with the Silvere Toye pigeons. In 1993, he sent in Romania two birds for my one loft race. They were both cocks and they reached the final: one of them won the 9th prize, the other one clocked the 10th. At present, here in Romania there are several lofts, including myself, with champion descendants from these two Silvere Toye cocks. As we speak, out of my “Motley Toye” there are 3 sons, 3 grandsons and 5 grand-grandsons selected in the Olympic team. There is no other mid-fond breeder better than this cock, “Motley Toye”, a pigeon with Verheye blood at its origin. He is now housed in my loft, but he can no longer breed. He was owned by Paul Sorescu, Cosmin Olteanu, Toncu Stefan, and now I brought him back home in order to stuff him the moment he dies.

 

 

 

  

 

RRP: How much importance do you attach to hand selection of pigeons?

N. Bizdrigheanu:  At first, I was paying a great deal of attention. Many years ago, the hand selection was on top of my priority list, now I’m an opponent of hand selection. And life proved me that a pigeon comes back home thanks to his brain. Now the race basket is my one and only selector. I no longer select out a pigeon only because he’s not looking good. If I show you my champion hen, you’ll be surprised by the way she looks. She’s a small, bony hen, but she won a tough 850 km race, on hot weather. I had lots of arguments with Cosmin Olteanu concerning this topic year in, year out. He’s always been a fan of strong and bony pigeons. Over the years, he selected out those who didn’t meet this standard, namely the small, light birds. Consequently his performances began to go down. His point was that in Belgium and Holland all the long-distance champion birds were large sized. I agreed with that, but when talking about 6-7 years old breeding birds. At this age, pigeons do gain some weight and become fully grown up adults. But for a pigeon who needs to fly well 900 km a large size will slow him down because he must drag heavy muscles during races.

 

 

 

   

 

RRP: If you were to turn a racer into a breeder, what would be your choice: a pigeon with a great pedigree from abroad or a Romanian crossbred pigeon, with excelent race records, but with parents who could not reach the same level? 

N. Bizdrigheanu: I personally appreciate both of them. We also have here in Romania top quality pigeons, but many fanciers don’t know how to work with them. And one of these fanciers is Mr. Cosmin Olteanu who spent fortunes on pigeons and bought direct children from champion birds. And he brought them here, crossbred them and he achieved no results. That’s not the way things should be done.

 

 

 

 

 

 

RRP: But how?

N. Bizdrigheanu: A direct son from a great champion from abroad should be mated with your best pigeon in the loft or with a pigeon from Romania that has a very good racing bloodline and won top results in other lofts. If a pigeon flyies well in your loft but has poor results when sold to other breeder(s), then you have a problem. Why shouldn’t we admit that Bucharest owns its results to Mr. Corneliu Cretulescu’s pigeons, who were super birds. Back in the Communism regime, there were not to many fanciers who could afford to import pigeons the same way we do it at present. His pigeons are good even nowadays if you are a smart guy and crossbreed them with fresh bloodlines. So I advocate for buying pigeons from the same bloodline, but with good results within several lofts. I don’t advocate for acquiring a pigeon that won the 1st place only once in his career. This might have been simply an accident.
