Proud to announce we are breeding from 6- 1st Ace pigeons 5 of which go back to our Ludo Claessens.
We believe we are the only loft in the USA breeding from three 1st Ace Pigeons that are 100% Ludo Claessens.

Bourgoin Family Lofts
It all started with Dave as a young boy catching his first baby pigeons and hand raising them in a card board box. Dave has always had a love of pigeons and passed that onto Jon while he was growing up.
In the beginning having pigeons was just fun for Dave & Jon until early 2000's when someone broke into our loft and Jon's family of Black's was stollen. We decided it was time to get out until 2006 when we were working in Bemidji, MN and Jon caught a blue bar splash hen that had been shot at a gun range. We took the splash hen back home and she later bred us several 1st. In 2006 we decided we wanted to race at a more professional level and started to bring in the Ludo Claessens and the Famous John Stoll pair Thunder & Maria. The first Ludo Claessens to come to our lofts and the foundation of our family today was Grizzly, Tom Cat, & Miss Katoog these three birds are World Class producing 1st place winners, Ace Pigeons, Champion Birds, AU Registered Champions, and One Loft winners all over the USA.
Within a few years we bred De Favorite Ace the best Young Bird in Minnesota. We have created a family of Ace pigeons that produce Ace pigeons. Now breeding from 6- 1st Aces Young/Middle Distance, multiple 2nd, and 3rd Aces.
