The California Classic is full. We are only taking replacements for another week and birds from those few breeders that had trouble with postal service earlier in the week.
The shipping to California is ok. We have received boxes, and mailed boxes out. If you are experiencing problems getting birds to California its because someone is not paying attention.
We thank all those breeders who have kept the California Classic alive for the last few years. It has definetly been a pain to pick up birds 3 hours away. Espcecially for 2 years in a row.
We will be pulling flights within the next few weeks. Health is very good. We made some huge loft improvements earlier in the year which so far has proven to be a plus.
Please call with any questions.
Good News.....Starting June 1st. The New Castle Quarantine will be lifted.

The California Classic and Royal Cup birds are both doing very well. Both Lofts continue to be exercised everyother day. ( Weather permitting)
**Royal Cup birds have been hit by many times by a Red tail. The SOB just will not go away. However, the Royal birds are doing great. Those breeders that have birds missing in Royal have been notified.
***California Classic birds are doing well. Settling is a little more of a challenge with this loft as every week 150+ new youngsters arrive. Currently, our main focus is health rather than wing time. We will start pulling flights in a few weeks with early birds sent in. We are doing weekly loft inventory with birds that are in the loft. Keep in mind, the last birds that come in are not on the invetory page. Inventroy is not always 100% accurate as birds miss scanner.
For the Local breeders, I will be picking up birds for all San Diego races this Saturday 5/23 at 2:00. The place to meet is Coco's off 57 freeway and Imperial Highway.
