This week the birds are loft flying daily and are are now flagged for 20 minutes. All in all the birds are looking good. The cooper has come around from time to time, but we are watching for him. We are letting the birds out in the morning at 8 and calling them back in around 9. As they start to fly more we will start them at 9-10 to get them acclimated more to the heat.
The inventory posted on June 13th does not include the last 3 groups of birds. We are starting this season with 1021 birds.
We will be pulling the 10th flight and doing hand inventory on June 16th and 17th. At that point we will be adding the last three groups to the main flock.
We got the bugs worked out of the clocking system now and will be doing more regular inventories. From Friday on, all birds will be going out daily.
IMPORTANT NOTICE!!!Deadline to accept birds has been extended to June 1st
Only 15 Days Left!!!
