The Longhorn Classic

will stop accepting birds at 1,500 paid perches

 

We now have 1,010 paid perches

 

Good morning breeder friends,

 

Here's what's up at the loft this week:

 

  • It was another very busy week of checking in new birds. We received over 30 boxes on Wednesday alone. We have over 900 birds in the loft & over 1,000 paid birds. We expect to hit our goal of 1,500 birds by June 30.
  • Birds that arrived in the first 5 weeks, from March 30 to May 1, are in the "main group" now. Each week we add a new group to the main group.
  • The main group only had open loft on Thursday 5/19 this week. We didn't let them free on Friday due to high winds and didn't let them out Saturday (today) due to forecasted thunderstorms.
  • We did an inventory this week of groups 1-5 (BIRDS THAT ARRIVED AFTER MAY 1 ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THIS INVENTORY). We marked the lost birds in WinCompanion, so please check your inventory. You can send replacements anytime until June 30. We care about all the birds and know our breeders do to - we are sorry for your missing birds.
  • We installed loft lights to help with loading of the birds in the dark.
  • Feel free to call us anytime.

 

 

Thank you to our supporters - we appreciate you!

LONGHORN CLASSIC ACCEPTING BIRDS IN 21 DAYS!

WE START ACCEPTING BIRDS IN 21 DAYS!

APRIL 1 to JUNE 30

Hello pigeon friends,

The Longhorn Classic loft is almost complete and will be ready to accept birds on April 1st.

The shell is finished including the roofing which is made of a white polycarbonate material that reflects heat while providing a lot of diffused light. Dividing walls between sections are almost done, and perches are being installed. In fact, 3 of the 15 sections are ready to accept birds and the rest will be done next week. The loft will have 1,900 perches for the 1,500 birds to choose from.

Also to be installed in March - landing boards, aviaries, exterior paint, water system, lighting, and stairs.
