Just like his father Piet, Henk is not only a great aficionado, but also collector of top pigeons. The collection made its mark on the Dr. de Weerd Pigeons Breeding Center (formerly Interpalomas Lofts) where pigeons from a select number of top fanciers and national winners, ace pigeons and Olympiad pigeons, are assembled.

One day racing
The current base for the breeding center was created with the acquisition of super breeding cock ‘Dragon Rocket’ and a number of his relatives in the sales of Embregts-Theunis and André Smits. Afterwards youngsters from all the top birds of Gaby Vandenabeele, Leo Heremans, Gaston van de Wouwer and Stefaan Lambrechts were acquired. This base was supplemented with top racing pigeons from proven lineages such as the 1st National La Souterraine, 1st National Gueret and the 1st Interprovincial Vierzon.
Offspring of these pigeons have meanwhile amply proved their class, not only at the lofts of Nicole de Weerd and Jan van Wanrooij, but also in numerous one loft races and with fanciers all over the world.
‘Oude Kruk’ and the ‘Buffel’, also supplemented with top racers such as the ‘Olympic Marathon Queen’, 1st Olympiad Pigeon Marathon Nitra 2011, and ‘Ace Buffel’, 5 x top 20 NPO and of course children of top pigeons from satellite loft
Kurvers-de Weerd, such as the ‘Perpignan King’, 1st International Ace Pigeon Marathon 2002. Recently, Henk bought children from ‘Don Leo’ of Leo Roks, that won 1st International Barcelona 2017 and 13th National Dax 2013.
Henk de Weerd never stops searching for quality pigeons and among his recent purchases are children of ‘Sara’, 1st Nat. Ace Pigeon Great Middle Distance KBDB 2016 of Willy Daniëls from Kessel (BE) and of ‘New Harry’, top racer of Jan Hooymans, winning a.o.: 1st Niergnies 14.737 b. and 1st Pont St. Maxence 12.894 b. Furthermore he acquired youngsters from the ‘New Bliksem’ of Gaby Vandenabeele, that performed extremely well with a.o. 1st Nat. Tulle 5.731 b., 5th Prov. Tours 2.964 b. and 10th Prov. Bourges 3.039 b. Lastly, Henk visited Gaston van de Wouwer once more, because of the great offspring his pigeons have given in the Dr. De Weerd Pigeons breeding loft.
