Big news; with permission of the respective owners of these pigeons we can inform you that "Yelena" of Etienne Meirlaen and "Superboy" of Scheele bros are of the rare LDHA A/A genotype. Although this genotype (homozygote A/A) is very exceptional to find in the racing pigeon population (the majority of pigeons is of the 'normal' B/B genotype), it is striking that 2 of the best breeding pigeons from the last 10 years in the world - in their own discipline - are of this genotype. It only confirms scientific genetic research clearly is on the right track in finding the truly exceptional breeding values in racing pigeons.

It strikes us that the A variant is clearly more present in top racing, but even more in excellent breeding pigeons (mostly genotype AB ; AA almost doesn't exist). For an older article on this special gene you can go to
