Training will start next Monday for all birds. The birds continue to be loft flown daily. We fly early morning and mid afternoon. Birds are flying stronger everyday. The humdity has declined but the heat continues. The afternooon winds have been a plus as the birds enjoy flying regardless of the high temps. Birds still moulting, with some looking fantastic and others looking so-so.
Please call with any questions.
We are off to a slower start then normal. Mother nature keeps changing up the daily fly. We have been dealing with heat, humidity and overcast/fog. Rain has been in the forcast, but its just a few drops. Currently, the overcast is laying low with very poor visibility....will fly tomorrow.
Pleae call with any questions.
All birds are back outside. We now have birds split into 2 groups. First group goes out 7:30 am. The 2nd group goes out 12:00. Birds will start to be on training program in 2 weeks. The birds are now starting to go through body moult.
On another note, this past week, I attended the Texas Center Convention in Oklahoma for 2 days. It was a great time. Roland Gutierez did a fantastic job along with John and Erica Reed coordinating the event. It's individuals like these that help our sport to grow. I suggest all Racing Pigeon enthusiast to get involved...either AU,IF,or Texas Center. You will learn more about your hobby...good and bad. Most improtantly, you will make new frinds for life!!
The birds are doing well. Flights on the birds are close to 1/2 way in. Body moult is starting to kick in on most of the birds.
A quick summary on the health of birds with intake this year. The losses have been very minimal for the majority of breeders. No PMV or Circo Virus.
We plan to start letting the birds out late next week.
We wish you all a happy and safe 4th of July weekend!!!
Th California Classic is closed. We appreciate all those breeders participating, and those breeders who wait patiently to be part of. We will be working along with the San Diego Holiday Cup, and Royal Cup on a itenary for the week of Thanksgiving. Details to follow.
Currently at the loft, birds are doing well. Majority of the birds are starting to moult. Birds that arrived the last few weeks are fair. They are still seperated from the main group.
I will pick up birds this Saturday at the usual spot in Brea...only for San Diego Classic and Royal Cup. I will be at Coco's 8:30-9:00. This will be the last pick up.
Have a great Father's Day weekend!!!
We are finishing up with receiving birds this week. This later group of new arrivials will be isolated from the main group for the next 4 weeks. This past week, we started the process of checking chips, and pulling flights. This process wil be every few days until all birds have been individually checked. Once flights are pulled, birds are on lock down until flights have grown back in. Basically, birds will be on vaction for the next 4 weeks.
Our health this year in the California Classic has been great. We thank you for the care and quality of birds you sent.
To all those who are participating in our San Diego races this year. Thank you!!!
