Good morning, Breeders and Flyers hope everyone is enjoying the Labor Day Weekend. We have completed our Hand Inventory and Pox Vaccinations. It was posted at 6PM Friday. We had some software problems in Wind Companion, once posted we found it changed the eligible non-chip birds (that would be new arrivals and quarantine birds 150) on the property to a missing status. So... we are making the necessary corrections which we will be done this Morning thanks for your patience.
Sorry for the mishap. Have a Safe Holiday
P.S If you are planing to send Birds PLEASE.. Call me first.
Good Morning Breeders,
Hand inventory will start tomorrow. All birds that were received after Aug. 17th will be inventoried but not
chipped. Birds are in quarantine and will not be released to fly till they are out of isolatiion. There are about 100 birds. Replacement of birds is till Sept. 15th. Do not send any extra birds.
Birds going out in two groups, 500 every other day. They are sound and health.
Just put 106 feet of sun screens over aviary in the back. With 40 feet of aviary in the front.

Been busy on new loft. It's 32 feet long and almost complete. Loft will be used for injuried, sick, overflow and whatever. Loft cost is over double from last year. Would like to thank Clay MacBeth, Dave Jones and Steve Boe for their time in helping me with the loft. All three are from California. Thanks again!
Bird are doing fine. They were in 13 sections at first. We are down to 6 bigger section. 500 bird are out flying in 3 section but not out all at one time. Birds are trapping well but not all traveling over the pads at one time.
Hope everyone had a great 4th of July.
Take care and be safe
Good Afternoon Breeders,
Reminding everyone that I will be at JEDDS Tuesday June 29th at noon time. Will try to get there earlier.
The first 250 birds are out for the last week. Just open loft with no one forced out. Birds are health and full of energy. Birds are settling in nicely. With no aerial attacks yet. The teams go out every other day. Only drinking 20 gals. of water aday.
Will be taking replacement birds till Sept. 15th. Nothing after that date or next year for replacements. Please put your pairs together now. Anything could happen from now till Aug. 31st. You can use a friends bird as your replacement.
