News and Updates

Good Afternoon everyone,

Birds are flying fine. 7 groups of 380 birds are out and flying with chips on. Two new group when out today. About 110 birds for the first time. Of course, a turkey vulture scares the birds off the landing board. Been a pretty interesting day, to say the least. Will be chipping another 100 bird this weekend. Have had a few loses off the landing board. Some bird are missing but do come back. The replacement birds are sent here at same time the missing bird shows up.

Reminder that I will be at Leonard Lee's auction Aug. 1st at 11:00 Saturday. Address is 7026 Kouries Way, Oakhills, Ca. 92344. Will be picking up bird teams and replacements.

We are at our limit with 960 registered and 777 bird on site. Thank you for your support but will not be taking anymore birds.

Thanks again and be safe

Good Morning to all,

Have 424 birds in loft now. We have 780 registered birds for GVLHR. Sorry to say we will only be able to accommodate 900 birds, for training and health reasons. Birds are doing great. We are letting out 170 birds with 120 flying and routing and settling nice, with baths once week. We added 60ft of aviary to the back and front of the loft, so the birds settle nicely and get plenty sunshine.

Will be picking up birds on the 29th June and 13th of July at Jedds around noon,  we’ll be at Leonard Lees Bird Auction on the Aug 1st at Leonard House. Have any questions feel free to call or text me.

I would like to thank Dave Jones and Clay MacBeth, Shirley Akins, Margaret Howell, Bill Blankenship for helping me finishing new Loft Sections and Aviary.

Be safe and hope to see your Monday.

Thank You
