Interview with Mr. Gica Stanca, from Constanta, national long-distance champion

- Highlights -

 

 

 

RRP: How long have you been keeping pigeons, Mr. Stanca?  

G. Stanca: Since always. I believe I got my first pigeons as a student in the 5th grade. Now I am 50 years old, so I breed pigeons for more than 30 years. As I child, I started with fancy pigeons. Later on I got seriously involved with racing pigeons. My first racing pigeons were pigeons caught on the boat, pigeons from abroad that got stranded on sailing boats. But they proved to be very good breeders and I still have their descendants in my loft as we speak. As time went by, I carefully selected these birds and I also managed to find out the origin of some of them. It turned out to be very good origins, out of famous bloodlines. And it seems that good blood never lies. But my first top quality pigeons came from Mr. Stanuca Vasile from Tulcea, a fancier who imported a large number of pigeons from Belgium, prior to Revolution. As these pigeons were excellent breeders, I cultivated and preserved their bloodline, especially for long-distance races. In 2000, I brought from Mr. Moroianu Stefan two birds: a Janssen coming from Mr. Stanuca and a second bird that was offered me as a gift. The last one was a direct youngster from two English pigeons that Mr. Manolache had received from a sailor. In my opinion, the cock N.E.H.U. 92 GF 5700 was probably the best breeder Constanta had ever seen because his youngsters were nothing but top racers. I sent a letter in England with the pigeon’s ring number and its owner (Mr. Brian Pearson) sent me back the ring certificate. The parents of this cock were from the strain of Georges Busscharet (Belgium) and they achieved remarkable results too. As a racer, this cock N.E.H.U. was a super crack, but he got lost during a tough race and he ended up in Romania. I made a research on the Internet and I came across an article entitled “Georges Busscharet, the Uncrowned King of England”. Read the article and you will see that his pigeons were tearing the opponents appart in all types of races, from speed up to extreme long-distance. This cock and the Stanuca pigeons lay at the foundation of 60% of my colony. 2002 is the year when these birds started to achieve the most important results for me. So, to cut a long story short, my loft is based on the following strains: Janssen, Desmet Matthijs, Stichelbaut, Cattrysse, Jan Aarden and Georges Busscharet. My stock loft consists of 8 couples, direct sons and daughters out of the above mentioned pigeons.  

 

 

RRP: What is your favorite type of pigeon as far as the size is concerned?

G. Stanca: I’d rather go for a smaller size. This is how a long and extreme long distance racer should look like. Concerning the wing, the secondaries should be as good as it gets, while the primary flights should be as narrow as possible. I’m looking for a good balance when I study the flights of a pigeon, that is the distance between them should be as equal as possible. The last 3 primary flights should have the same length if possible and a good ventilation is a must. If you look at my Stanuca pigeons, you will notice good ventilated and well balanced wings.

 

 

RRP: What is the most important thing in order to achieve top results in pigeon racing: the quality of the pigeon or the preparation provided by the fancier? 

G. Stanca:  There are 3 basic elements in someone’s attempt to achieve good results: the health of the pigeon, the preparation before a race and the quality of that pigeon. Good quality is a must, there’s nothing you can do without it. Let’s say a fancier has quality birds, but no skills. He may have good results once, maybe twice, but then it’s all over. The health of a pigeon is the number one priority. Let me give you an example. Last winter I had a cock with certain health problems. He was having watery droppings. I treated him very carefully, although I was aware he cannot be a top racer under these circumstances. Finally the spring came, the weather got nice and sunny, and the pigeon got over his health problems. But his racing results were poor that year. So I made the decision to select him out.

 

 

 

RRP: Do you attach great importance to the recovery of pigeons?

G. Stanca:  Absolutely. I use natural depurative tea on a regular basis, brewer’s yeast and garlic oil, then vitamins and Mumm before basketing. This year I also used Belgasol for fast recuperation. These are pretty much the products that I use. During the racing season, I sometimes treat my birds against canker and respiratory infections, after their return. As you can see, I don’t believe in giving too much products to my pigeons. The winter treatments start after the first week in January, so I can have enough time to complet the schema. I treat against canker, coccidiosis, paratyphus and coryza. I keep my pigeons separated only for two weeks in winter time.
