Good Morning Breeders,
All the birds are now all chipped and out flying. As soon as the replacement birds start going over the pads and into the tunnels. Will post another inventory on Wincompanion and Benzing live.
Birds are healthy and finishing up a real clean molt. Most are flyng a good hour on the wing, with 200 to 300 flying 2 hours.
Can't wait to start training them.
We are just now getting out of the high 90's. Looks like we will have a short fall before winter sets in.
Hope you all are having a great young bird season.
Take Care and Be Safe

Good morning, breeders,
We now have 1100 birds flying and tracking the 400+ remaining are learning how to trap and getting used to their new surroundings. A quick note: If you're sending replacement birds, send only the ones you're replacing. Do not add any extra birds, the loft is at its limit we are only thinking about the welfare of the remaining birds. Remember that younger birds need to catch up to the rest of the group, and older ones are Going through the end of the molt. They are too strong and flying off. It’s just a thought.
The rest of the birds are doing fine, their health is good overall we're doing much better than last year regarding losses off the loft.
We are now testing out all the equipment We are fixing many problems the vermin have had a field day on our wires and such, so Please be patient we should have it up and running. We will be posting the trainers on Wincompanion and Benzing One Loft.
We will do a complete Hand Scan beginning on the 31st of this month.
Please be safe out there and batten down the hatches as we face a tropical storm, “Hillary.” This gives a bad name for tropical storms…. Well, anyway, be safe out there.
