SEPT 20 UPDATE

Hey you all I was trying to set up my basket list today on a 65 mile training race ,but the clock didn't communicate with the computer so I did have a 65 mile training race with a 10 mph headwind and the most of them around 100 drop in within a few minutes @ about 1250 ypm. so they are getting in shape. Sorry for the mess up , I had a few calls , texts & e-mails about the trainer. The activation race will be next Friday 29th of Sept. weather permitting. Thanks Dave

SEPTEMBER 18TH UPDATE

Hey guy's and gal's, the time is getting closer to the activation race and the majority of the Cajun Classic OLR pigeons look and feel GREAT . I just ran an inventory on the birds if you want to look and see how many you have left. I trained Saturday and all but a few flew fantastic around 1280 ypm in a fog . I was pleased with the way they reacted. We [ Deep South Cajun Combine ] flew a 150 mile race [187 for my loft] and had slow returns for some reason or the other . I talked to several people and they said the same thing happen to them. Keep up with the updates and when we have the Activation race then what you have left the Entry Fee will be due. I have already sent entry fee $ to several OLR . So hope you all have a good Young Bird Season . Thanks Dave

AUGUST 18TH UPDATE

Hey guy's and gal's , well it's that time again to get started training the Cajun Classic OLR pigeons ! I've been crating the pigeons up the last few days to get them use to the crates and they are coming out like they have been road trained for a month. I have taken them about a mile in a couple of directions and they are flying a lot better , some were [12-15 ]  just going to the house and staying and not routing like the rest were ,so that's why I started to crate them up. They as a whole feel Great! I really believe that the Natural Products that I've been giving in the water is really helping as far as Health is Concerned. And no I'm not getting any thing free from the people making these products. Tomorrow will be a 5 mile toss for the birds and I will continue this for about 6 weeks everyday [ weather permitting ] until I feel they are ready for the 100 mile Activation race . I will be putting the training on Wincompanion so look for the results. I will release in 4 bunches so don't get excited if you win one day or last the next Ha. Thanks for flying the Cajun Classic. Dave

AUGUST 7TH UPDATE

Good afternoon ladies and gents , for the last week I have been catching each pigeon and basketing them to get use to the crates . I have been taking them to the pasture to be released from crates and they are doing great ! I will water them in the crates to make sure they know where to find water  , well Saturday I basketed the pigeons and took them in the Kabota and let the birds go in groups of 45 [ 4 crates ] I released the groups and headed back to the loft and about 30 minutes later the lighting and thunder started and for 2 hours it came a hard rain . The birds scattered out for the rest of the day  , if you looked on the wincompanion trainer for Saturday you will see the difference in clocking , I still had 19 out at Dark  . 8 came in Sunday and 11 are still out  . I had a guy call me from about 2 miles and said he had 2 birds on his house . they are in the area , so maybe the others will come back . You can check inventory this afternoon and see if your birds are missing ,  I will start training in September , Thanks again for entering the Cajun Classic , Dave

JULY 18TH UPDATE

Good Morning to all and hope everyone is having a Great Summer. I went to the Texas Center Convention in Houston last week and had a good time , meeting and greeting with all. Thanks to the people who put it all together . I will be letting the pigeons out next week , they have been on lock-down since June 17th and all look good except a couple that have one eye cold and they are isolated and given some Tylan to knock it out and then they will be back with the group. I got a letter in the mail to report to court for jury duty today {GRAND JURY} I hope I don't get selected but things like this happen and you have to do your duty , just hope it doesn't last long. Thanks  to all yall who are flying the Cajun Classic. Dave

MID JUNE UPDATE

Hey Guys & Gals, First of all I would like to wish each and everyone of the Father's a HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!!!! I pulled the 10th flight along with the tail feathers and now will let the young pigeons set in the loft for 35-40 days and relax and grow all feathers back without any STRESS. They all look and feel Great. I have had only 2 birds that were sick and they were sick when I recieved them . I am using an ACIDIFIER in the water 5 days and 2 days regular water with Orego Stim and man it does work on the health of the birds. Thanks to Tim Kirschner with the Breeders Fall Classic for introducing the natural products to me last year. I used it last year and it worked good , but this year I'm using a different Acidifier , The one I'm using is from Kastle Pigeon , called ACIDIFIER PLUS . It works well in the HOT and HUMID SOUTH LOUISIANA WEATHER . I will run the pigeons through WINCOMPION in the next few days , so you all can see your birds are still here. Thanks Dave

JUNE 4TH UPDATE

 Hey Guy's and Gal's , I had a hands on inventory yesterday and all but a couple of pigeons felt Great! I pulled the 9th flight and will pull the 10th June17th along with the tail feathers . It has been RAINING in South Louisiana for about two weeks now and calls for more rain this week. Hot and Humid , the only time I let them out is early in the AM. After I pull the 10th flight they will be locked up for 35-40 days ! I've been doing this process on my own young birds for along time ,the stress of flying without all the flights and tail feathers seems take a tole on the young birds ! When I started keeping the birds in[35-40 days ] untill all feathers are moulted they reacted much better when they started flying again . Once again this process works for me , if it works don't try to fix it just try to improve it,  I was always told. Thanks to all that are flying the Cajun Classic , Dave

MID MAY UPDATE

Greetings Flyers!

We have extended the deadline for recieving birds  to May 31st, due to some breeders having problems raising babies. The original deadline was May 15. Everything is going good in the loft.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to call me.

Thanks,

Dave

MAY 1ST UPDATE

Good afternoon flyers , we have around 130 birds settled and 15 more in holding stall to be settled to our loft . Also we have 25- 30 more coming in this week and more next week . Thanks for all who signed up for the Cajun Classic ! Out of all these pigeons we have had only one that we eliminated from the team due to sickness ,Wow that's is unreal ,we are using a Natural Product that gets rid of the Bad Bateria in the intestines  and not the Good Bacteria and it seems to be TOP NOTCH . The only other things I have gave the pigeons are PMV-1, Ivomec, and dusting them for mites and flies ! The only thing I haven't done is Pox , because it is on back-order, Thanks Again Dave
