LOFT FLY DAILY

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.

PULL 10TH FLIGHT

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.

PULLED NINTH FLIGHT On the 19th and 20th we pulled the ninth flight on all birds that have dropped a flight. We are still trying to get the clocking system bugs worked out. The main problem is getting a strong wifi system in place and are working on that at this time. Birds are looking good and enjoying going outside daily.

SHIPPING CONTAINERS When shipping birds please don't jam more than 3 birds in the cut down 2 bird boxes and new 2 bird boxes. Pigeons produce more heat than what people realize. This can cause the birds to be stressed and dehydrated. There are not enough holes for the heat to escape and fresh air to come in. Also, when the boxes are cut down they are squared and allows the post office to stack boxes tight together blocking the air holes making the situation even worse. We have received a couple dead birds this year due to overcrowding in the shipping boxes. I understand shipping costs have gone up dramatically but, it is better to use two boxes than one if need be.
