QUARENTINE UPDATE

 

HELLO FANCIER'S,

THE STATE VET FINALLY POSTED THAT THE QUARENTINE COULD BE LIFTED IN JUNE. WOW, THEY HAVE RODE THIS OUTBREAK FOR A LONG TIME (YOU CAN GO TO THE CDFA WEBSITE TO SEE THE NEW POSTING).  PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU WOULD LIKE YOUR BIRDS BACK AND I WILL MAKE A TRIP TO JEDDS TO RETURN THE LOCAL BIRDS WHEN IT IS LIFTED.  WE WILL MAIL OUT THE OUT-OF-STATE BIRDS AS SOON AS THE POSTAL SERVICE WILL TAKE THEM.  WE HAVE A LIST STARTED OF FANCIER'S THAT WANT THEIR BIRDS BACK.  IF WE DON'T HEAR FROM YOU WE WILL ASSUME THAT YOU DON'T WANT YOUR BIRDS BACK AND THEY WILL BE DONATED TO OTHER FANCIER'S.

WE ARE ALREADY MAKING PLANS FOR THE 2021/2022 RACE AND ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO CELEBRATING OUR 10TH YEAR OF HAVING THE ONE LOFT RACE.

THANKS FOR ALL THE SUPPORT!!

2020-2021 RACE CANCELLED

DUE TO THE NEWCASTLE QUARANTINE WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO HAVE A RACE AGAIN THIS YEAR.  THE CDFA HAS NOT LIFTED THE QUARANTINE IN OUR AREA.  THERE IS TALK THAT IT MAY BE LIFTED IN JUNE, BUT WE CANNOT COUNT ON THE CDFA TO MAKE A GUARANTEED DECISION.  THE POSTING FROM THE CDFA ON FEBRUARY 20TH SAID THERE HAD BEEN ANOTHER OUTBREAK.  THEY STATE THAT AFTER AN OUTBREAK THE QUARANTINE IS PROLONGED FOR ANOTHER 120 DAYS, WHICH WOULD BE JUNE 20TH AT THE EARLIEST TO LIFT THE QUARANTINE.  NOT ONLY ARE WE WAITING FOR THE QUARANTINE TO  LIFT BUT WE ARE ALSO WAITING ON THE POSTAL SERVICE TO OPEN SHIPPING OF LIVE BIRDS. 

WITH THAT BEING SAID, THE 2020-2021 RACE HAS TO BE CANCELLED.  

WE STILL HAVE ALL THE 2018-2019 RACE BIRDS IN THE LOFT.  PLEASE LET ME KNOW BY EMAIL OR TEXT IF YOU WOULD LIKE YOUR BIRDS BACK ONCE THE QUARANTINE IS LIFTED.  IF WE DO NOT HEAR FROM YOU WE WILL ASSUME THAT YOU DO NOT WANT YOUR BIRDS BACK AND WILL DONATE THEM TO FANCIERS IN THE AREA WHO HAVE HAD THEIR BIRDS DESTROYED.  

THANK YOU FOR ALL THE CALLS AND TEXTS ASKING IF WE WERE ABLE TO HAVE A RACE THIS YEAR AND UNFORTUNATELY WE ARE UNABLE TO.  

WE WILL BE BACK BIGGER AND BETTER THAN EVER FOR THE TEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF THE FAST EDDIE'S LATE HATCH CLASSIC IN 2021-2022. 

THANKS FOR ALL THE SUPPORT,

THE LATE HATCH CREW

I  HAVE SOME NEW INFORMATION ON THE QUARANTINE . A REPRESENTITIVE FROM THE STATE CAME INTO THE FEED STORE NEXT TO MY BUSINESS AND TOLD THEM THERE WILL BE NO CHICKEN SALES FOR EASTER. THEY ALSO SAID WE ARE STILL NOT ALOUD TO MOVE BIRDS INSIDE OR OUTSIDE OF THE QUARANTINE AREA. THEY TOLD THEM THAT IF THERE IS NO MORE OUTBREAKS, OR MOVEMENT OF BIRDS, THAT THE QUARANTINE COULD BE LIFTED IN JUNE. UNFORTUNATLY THIS IS NEWS THAT WE DIDNT WANT TO HEAR BUT WE HAVE TO PLAY BY THE RULES.

UPDATE 1-22-2020

HELLO FANCIERS,

WE DO NOT HAVE ANY NEW NEWS FROM THE STATE WEBSITE.  I HEARD TODAY FROM A FEED STORE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD THAT A STATE REPRESENTATIVE WAS IN THE STORE DOING A ROUTINE CHECK UP.  THAT REPRESENTATIVE SAID TO THE MANAGER OF THE STORE, THAT THE QUARANTINE WILL MOST LIKELY NOT BE LIFTED UNTIL JUNE 2020.  THIS IS B.S. IN MY OPINION, BUT WE HAVE TO OBIDE BY THE RULES.  IF THIS IS TRUE, THEN WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO HAVE A RACE AGAIN THIS YEAR.  WE WILL CONTINUE TO KEEP YOU UPDATED.

CDFA ARTICLE FROM 12/23/2019 WRITTEN BY THE STATE VET, DR. ANNETTE JONES:    

https://www.cdfa.ca.gov/ahfss/Animal_Health/newcastle_disease_info.html

 

WE WILL WAIT TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS WITH THIS QUARANTINE TO SEE IF WE WILL BE ABLE TO HAVE A RACE FOR 2020-2021.  WE WILL DECIDE WHAT WE ARE GOING TO DO BY APRIL 1, 2020.  THIS WILL GIVE US ENOUGH TIME TO DISTRIBUTE LAST YEARS BIRDS BACK TO THEIR OWNERS BEFORE ACCEPTING NEW BIRDS IF THE QUARANTINE IS LIFTED BY THAT TIME. 

HOPE EVERYONE HAD A GOOD HOLIDAY SEASON, AND HOPE EVERYONE HAS A HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR!!

UPDATED INFO ON NEWCASTLE

THE NEWCASTLE OUTBREAK IS STILL GOING ON IN OUR AREA ACCORDING TO THE STATE VETS. THEY HAVE BEEN EUTHANIZING BIRDS IN THE INFECTED AREAS FOR 5 MONTHS NOW. I HAVE TALKED TO SOME RACING PIGEON FANCIERS THAT HAVE HAD THEIR WHOLE LOFTS EUTHANIZED. THEY HAVE NO IDEA OF WHEN THE QUARENTINE WILL BE LIFTED. HOPEFULLY THIS WILL STOP SOON. 

I WILL KEEP YOU POSTED WITH ANY NEW INFORMATION
