Timbarra lofts have aquired original winning bloodlines which carry the old Merckx blood of Janssens and the old Hofkyns bloodline through Champion Hollywood, this material we believe to be some of the best in the World at the present time, the bloodlines we sourced are that of Jo & Florian Hendriks in Holland.
The base of the line we chose is from the famous 'Popeye Dynasty' which is Champion Asterix.
Asterix was bred by the Hendriks family and went on to win 1st National NPO Sourdun with nearly 5000 birds, besides other top prizes against large numbers of competition, Asterix was purchased by the Beverdam family in Enter.

The mother of Asterix is Miss Mattens USA 03-1186 a direct daughter of the world famous Golden Mattens NL91.2310369 (4th National Ace Pigeon) x Lucky Star USA 99-363.
Lucky Star USA 99-363 is a direct daughter of Hollywood NL93.4053083 Winner of 1st National Ace pigeon NPO in 1997, 1996, 1995 Hollywood would also have won National Ace pigeon in 1994 but his results were not admitted to the organisation, Hollywood won to the best of my knowledge 14 x 1st clubs, 30 plus prizes in top 5, and Ace pigeon 3 times...Hollywood was Janssen old Merckx bloodline-Hofkens Strain.
Hollywood was paired to Breeders Best NL90.9019241 from Lady Kim 88-4134569 1st National NPO Tours 5.334, 4th National NPO Tours, 5.482, We could list birds constantly and all National winning positions and Ace Pigeon awards, so you can understand why we have chosen this Janssen-Hofkens material.
