Here at 'Midnight Blue Racing Lofts
Our Speciality is breeding and Racing 100% Janssen of Arendonk Legendary Racing Pigeons.  We believe that we have the finest and most diverse collection of this original family in all of North America.  They have proven themselves on the Race Course as well as the Breeding Lofts.  Our Janssens are pure and uninterrupted dating back to 1886
  The final Auction of The Janssen Brothers is now considered the greatest auction of racing pigeons the world has ever known. This family spanned the time of 126 years (1886 to 2012). The influence and impact of their pigeons was immeasurable. 
    Twenty five pigeons were auctioned in twenty lots, and brought in a total of $590.000 USD.  Each lot averaged approximately $29.000 !!  
   Below you find the Super Star 'Original Janssens that made up the final auction!! These are Fathers and Mothers, Brothers and Sisters, Aunts and Uncles, and Cousins to our collection you see directly to the left.  
    Our collection of 'Original Janssens' is unparalleled on the continent of North America.
We have set aside an incredible group bred directly from our Originals, to ensure the future of these precious bloodlines for the future of Pigeon Racing.

Midnight Blue Lofts has moved !!  We have just completed the construction of our new 'Dream Loft' and our Janssens are now secured in their new home.  Because of the move we are going to begin breeding quite late this season.  Out target date is March 20th to put the birds together. Our new home is complete with expanded acreage and beautiful pines to border all sides. With a 'birds eye' view to the south, we're ready to expand and further develop our Janssen of Arendonk Breeding and Racing Team.
