​In 2009 we began building our colony of 100% Janssen of Arendonk Racing Pigeons ... We began with a 1/2 brother and 1/2 sister  bred from two 'Original Janssens of Arendonk.  We continued to build our Janssen colony by adding a few more each year. Since then we have imported eight from Europe.  One 'Original born and bred at lofts of the Janssen Brothers.  Seven whose Sire and Dam were born and bred at Arendonk / and Two whose four Grand Parents were born and bred at Arendonk. Our purpose was to bring in a wide base which included as many as the champion Janssen bloodlines as possible. Thus when we selected the foundation to build our colony it was with much thought and strategic planning. The Original Janssens from Arendonk are already very inbred, so we wanted to be very careful  keep the genetics from getting even closer. We are currently entering our 6th year of breeding this wonderful family.  Our main goal is to compete with a strain of pure Janssens.  Through this process we relocated and lost a couple of years of racing. Coupled with the time it took to build a family we launched our racing program in Young Birds of 2014.  In 2015 we will begin our first year of 'Old Bird' Racing with our 100% Janssen pigeons.  Old Bird short and middle distance racing (100 thru 400 miles) is our true love.

  In 2014 Young Bird competition we flew only four races with our Young Janssens (we fly natural..no dark or light systems).  Blue Klamperke flew well and will be racing as a 2015 yearling.  (Old Bird Racing 100 through 400 miles is our true love)
   Blue Klamperke placed 9th, 85 pigeons, 20 lofts, 100 miles (top 11%) /... 44th, 755 pigeons, 33 lofts, 150 miles (top 6%) /... 62nd, 593 pigeons, 27 lofts, 100 miles. (top 11%) 
   Blue Klamperke is a direct son of our 'Blue Street and 'Geschelpt Klamperke. He is presently our #1 Champion racer.
​  
​ World wide only a few 'Original Janssens remain,   Geschelpt Klamperke   is one of them !  She is a phenomenal pigeon in every way.  The quality of her offspring is very evident.  There is no gene pool more prolific then the Janssens !
  At the Janssen Brothers final auction in April of 2012, 20 lots brought in $590,000 USD. At the final auction the Sire to Geschelpt Klamperke sold for $41,500, the Dam sold for $17,000, and her full brother sold for: $36,000.The total was  $94,500,00 USD. She is one of a kind, breeding  and treasured here at Midnight Blue Racing Lofts. Geschelpt Klamperke is 10 years old in this picture, she handles and has the vitality of a three year old pigeon. She is simply the BEST !
​  Jonge Geschelpt was set aside for stock at the ripe old age of 4 weeks. As a young pigeon she was robust and full of vigor. She has all the traits of the prototype within the Janssen strain.  She is loaded with every quality that I could ever ask for in a breeding hen. She is a spitting image of her Dam Geschelpt Klamperke. We knew immediately she would be a breeder for us.
  We entered her into two shows this winter.  In the Viking Show she placed 2nd in Young Hens.  In the Mid-Minnesota Show she placed 1st in Young hens. She is our heir apparent to the great 'Geschelpt Klamperke.

   'Air Klamperke is a full sister to Jonge Geschelpt. She had a nice race for us placing 59th place against 593 pigeons, and 27 lofts, on the 100 mile course. (That put her in the top 10%). She also is a super nice handling pigeon, with superior muscle and feather quality. She was 5th place at the Viking show, and 2nd place at the Mid-Minnesota show (second only to her sister Jonge Geschelpt.
   'Air Klamperke is a direct daughter of our 'Blue Street and 'Geschelpt Klamperke.
Chantilly 52 was brought in from the PIPA auction in 2012. She is a very smooth and sleek handling hen. All four of her Grand Parents were born and bred at the lofts of the Brothers. She was bred at the famous lofts of Herman Beverdam, and is about as well bred a Janssen as you will find in existence today.
   Chantilly 52 has tight muscles and is very hyper in the loft.  It took almost two years for her to calm down, but once she did we were indeed blessed with a real gem ! 
  Super Vosse was our first Vosse (red)Janssen. Both of his parents were born and bred at the lofts of the Brothers of Arendonk.. His Bloodlines can be traced back to 1919 when the very first Vosse (red's) were introduced to the Janssen Brothers Lofts.
  He is one tough pigeon, and is as strong of a pigeon that you will ever handle. He is a true Stud. 
   Now at five years of age there still is no cock in our lofts that can challenge him for territory..  He carries both the red and blue color genes, and can also throw both patterns of check and bar  So it is always a surprise as to what what he might breed.
'Bow Shock' is our on our race team and flew very consistently for us in three races.  He is a real beauty and stands out in our lofts.  He is the last of our 'Geeloger Jef Line'. Geeloger Jef was unfortunately injured last season and is no longer with us.  
   We were torn between stocking or racing him. He is our last representitive of the 'Geeloger Jef bloodline.  However we will allow him to race him as a yearling in 2015.  We think he is going to prove our decision correct.
'New Lowieke' was named after her Great Grand Sire 'Lowieke. Lowieke was an Original Janssen from the Janssen Brothers lofts bred in 1996. Jan Van De Pasch acquired Lowieke and was rewarded with the greatest modern day Janssen Brothers Breeder in all of Europe. this included (among many others) 1st WHZB 1998 and 1st WHZB Ace pigeon.  Lowieke  also streamed through the Blood Lines of the 2014 South Africa Million Dollar Race winner.
   She has the silkiest feathering that you could imagine.  Her eye is as orange as the morning sun !  We have very big expectations for this prolific Janssen breeder.
   'Blue Street' is one of the earliest Janssens bred here at Midnight Blue Lofts.  He's the son of Super Vosse, and he inherited the great strength and stature of his father. He breeds pure gold, and is the chosen mate for our treasure 'Geschelpt Klamperke'. There offspring exemplify the Janssen type that we have been searching for.  Smart, bold, strong, fast, and full of vigor. We have been extremely pleased with their offspring. 
   It's easy to see why the Janssen strain was so dominant, and still is today after more than a century of breeding.  'Blue Street is one of the finest breeders we've ever owned.

   Blue 22 is a son of School Street and a Grand son of Super Vosse. This is the strength of our Stud line. Thus far he has been a super breeder for us. He is compact and very powerful.  He possesses every trait we have been searching to carry our Janssen line deep into the future.
   Presently we are on a Polygamous program with him, with the endeavor to fin the perfect mate for his pre-potent genetic factors.
   'Vosse Shock' He is our very latest import, bred from two 'Original Janssens directly from the Brothers. Vosse Shock was brought in for the purpose of expanding our Vosse line. When we received him we knew we had something very special right away. As you can see from the picture he is powerful, smart, and beautiful. In his pedigree is the great 'De Klamper, De Beul, and Vos Van of 99 !!. 
   We are excited to introduce the prolific bloodlines of 'Vosse Shock' into our existing awesome Janssen Colony. We want to expand the 'Vosse Colony in our lofts. and Bow Shock is the perfect addition for that purpose.
    'September Girl' is bred directly from two 'Original Janssens from the Brothers. She is a 'pearl-eyed beauty.  She is double line bred to the World Famous 'Prinses of 2003.  
   The pedigree of Prinses is just loaded with champion after champion pigeons bred down from the Brothers.  
This is a short, compact muscle-bound hen.  She is the female version of our 'Super Vosse'  A powerful pigeon in the hand, and a fierce hen on her nest and babies.  She has a very bold head for a hen, and can easily be mistaken for a cock bird at first appearance. 

   Introducing 'September Prinses' She will be breeding for the first time in 2015. She has speed written all over her. She is a direct daughter of two 'Original Janssens born at the Brothers Lofts in Arendonk Belgium
   'Septemberman, Dochter Prinses, De Prinses, Klamper, Blauw Wittikske, Beul, and many more of the Janssen greats are found in her pedigree.
   September Prinses has the 'Shield of Armor' feather quality, and is as smart as a whip in the lofts.  She adds another dimension to our already awesome colony !  

   In 2014 we only raised two Vosse offspring. Jonge Vosse was a perfect Red Checker that has been a very consistent racer for us.  He has the pure strength and personality of his Sire 'Super Vosse.  
    The Janssen Brothers kept and raced so very few of the Vosse pigeons, that when we breed a nice one we are always tempted to stock them, because they are so rare in 2015.
   Now that we have added 'Vosse Shock  (above) to our colony, we are more at ease with racing and testing our few and rare Reds. We have strong expectations for Jonge Vosse as he develops on the race team
   Piano Man is a magnificent young cock currently on our Old Bird race team. He is a bit larger than most of our Janssens, but every extra ounce is power packed with muscle, and strength.  In our racing loft he is our most dominant male.  He takes after his Sire 'Super Vosse in every way. 

Thus far 'Piano Man' has given us two 8th place Concourse victories.  We look forward to seeing how he develops as a two year old on the race team in 2016 !
