One of the best older families to date, the Maurice Casaert/Marcel Aelbrecht pigeons are something you want to have in your breeding loft. Frank McLaughlin introduced these pigeons in the late 1990s and they have made their mark in his breeding loft and many others.
A few notable pigeons that Frank brought in, being "The Venus Cock" father to the star Casaert breeder "Mercury". Mercury had a breeding record a mile long by the time he was two years old. He secured his spot in the McLaughlin Lofts breeding pen for years to come. Fast forward to 2021, we were very excited to add "Mercury" and two half siblings all bred from the Venus Cock to our breeding loft. Old but gold, these pigeons children and offspring will reside here for many years.
"Demi" probably one of, if not the best Casaert pigeon to come to the United States, is behind hundreds of winners around the country and beyond. Demi goes back to the base pigeon "invincible Montaubon. This bloodline is sought after by many as they get rarer and rarer as time goes on. Demi is the grandmother to the famous "Dark Hen" and is behind "The Freak". Generations down the line the Casaert pigeons have dominated the race course for decades and show no sign of stopping.
This summer, we were fortunate enough to add (7) super pigeons to our breeding program.
