News and Updates
May-23-2019

We have several birds pulled into the sick bay. Seems that a round of sickness is in one of the groups. Medication for 5-7 days - will advise on any lost/missing birds early next week when we update inventory.

Other than that, temperatures have been abnormally cooler.

All birds arriving this week and for the last few weeks of acceptance are in separate quarantine sections (as is normal procedure here).

Best regards

May-20-2019

Unbelievable abnormally cooler temps this week with 75 degrees for a high today - 

All birds that arrived this week will be reflected on the website and updated on 27th May.

All is well - we are on our last round of babies in our own breeding program for our local races and a few International OLRs. Generally we like to breed in the heat (80-100 degrees)- the babies seem to fly better in the hotter climates.

We will accept birds until June 15th - 

Best regards and thanks for the support ~~!

Temps have been below normal back to low 80. Birds have been enjoying ...

Birds are coming in with accepting through end of May and replacements to June 15. We will relax the acceptance perioed for both entries and replacements to June 15th as some breeders are on the cusp. Our training starts in mid October so there is ample time to settle and route.

On a side note, when shipping birds if you can include a list of your birds so that there is minimal confusion on this side.

 

Best regards and Thanks for your support

We have had several hot days to 99 flirting with 100 - water intake has increased as expected. We currently have 4 birds in the sick bay as a result of this. Two will make it but for the other two will make a determination by weekend to see if replacement needed. As a precaution, we are treating with a sulpha drug right about now based on experience - this early heat tests the health of these birds.

Hand inventory completed - missing a few birds (breeders notified).Anyone missing a bird has the opportunity to send two birds at no additional perch fee to replace the missing bird. Replacements accepted through June 15th.

 

Our training starts mid-October with a final race tentatively 1st week in December. So get those remaining youngsters in. Personally I am banding my local Auction money birds NOW for a final 365 miles in December also - so it is not too late ~~!!

 

If you live in the California quarantine zip codes - and wish to get another breeder to breed your entries. We cann arrange to have local breeders that will breed for you.

 

Best regards

Update: 4/25/2019

Well we have a few days of heat 99 degrees forecasted - always a concern here and keeping a watchful eye on every single bird.

Oregano based, Ropa B, Entero-Plus and Adeno-Zap are some of the supplements we are using at this time to keep a healthy intestinal balance.

As a courtesy anyone that is missing a bird will be allowed to send a free replacement plus an extra bird (free perch).

We are at 250+ on the intake with over 400+ reservations. Birds accepted through end of May with replacement through June 15th.

Best of luck and thanks for your support

2019 Intake - on schedule. BIrds are healthy with lots of vigor and wing flapping at meal time. Feeding the traditional Versele Laga Youngbird mix. Accepting birds through the end of May and if needed June 15th for replacements.

 

Our 2019 OB racing is in the books - with 4 day birds on the gruelling 535 mile race. Congrats to all the birds that completed the series. We were flattered to win 1st Champion Loft again ....

2019 Intake is going well. It is not tool late to get into one of the best One Loft Races in the country. We will be accepting birds until June 15th.

 

All is well at the lofts - the OLR birds are doing great - we had our first 90 degree day this past week. In anticipation, we had Adeno Zap, Medpet Entero Plus Probiotics and Ropa B Oregano products in the water leading up to that. Usuall the first hot days, the birds will drink excess water - and this can cause problems.

5 birds are missing/out of commission as of this week's hand inventory - Breeders will be notified shortly. Anyone that is missing a bird will be allowed to send a free replacement plus an extra bird (free perch) for the trouble of just sending one bird. So you can send 2 birds at no extra perch if need to replace one bird.

 

2019 OLD BIRD Final: Birds are en route to the 500 mile station. There were a few injured birds that were kept at home - but everything else went to the race. The race is shaping up to be faster than we would like (tailwinds expected) - but such is pigeon racing. ANY BIRD THAT COMPLETES THIS ARIZONA FEDERATION SERIES IS A CHAMPION ~!!! From 175 miles to 540 miles across the Arizona-Nevada desert in a North West direction - THIS AFTER FLYING SOUTHEAST in youngbirds across Arizona - New Mexico - Texas. This is no small feat spanning 900 miles from Nevada to Texas ~~!!! These birds are very well bred. Best of luck this weekend ~~!!
