HAND INVENTORY COMPLETE. LAST WEEK TO SHIP!
HAND INVENTORY IS POSTED‼️
 
 
 
All birds except those shipped last week were hand scanned today. This is the last week to send birds. Please ship them asap.
 
Birds feel awesome and the Breeders should feel proud! Very nice group. If your bird is no longer here, believe me when I say I take it personally and hate losing any bird. Please get another bird here with another chance to compete. Thank you all for entrusting me to care for your birds!
 
Excited to close up shop and get this season going! Who’s going to be the champ?!

LAST WEEK TO SEND BIRDS!

Good afternoon!

 

June 14th is the last day to accept birds for BOTH regular intake and replacement birds. There will be no birds accepted after that date. You have Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday to get them in the mail!!

 

The clock is running so please check to see if you're missing a bird. If so, get them in the mail tomorrow!

 

The birds are out flying every day that the weather permits. It's starting to get hot here in Louisiana so we get them out early. We've changed up our feeding system to start feeding around 10-11am to ensure the birds get the option for a couple hours on the wing and then back safe in the loft / aviary. This will help once we start road training as well. We want the birds to fly home and get the allotted wing time for that day and then trap. 

 

Are chute system is almost complete. If you watch our facebook videos, you've seen it. Excited to start introducing the birds to the chute / trailer and getting them comfortable. 

 

If you have any questions at all, shoot me a text or give me a call. 716-525-5653

SHIP YOUR BIRDS! LAST DAY IS JUNE 14!

Good morning Breeders!

 

Today is the last day of the week to ship birds and then you have Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of next week to get birds in the mail. THATS IT! Don't delay. June 14th is the last day of accepting all pigeons, both regular intake and replacements. Please check the clock to see if you need to send a replacement.

 

The health is great in the loft. We had a very rainy day here so we just have all the birds in the main aviary space. We took advantage of the wet weather and pressure washed all of our grated floors to ensure the droppings don't build up too much on the expanded metal floors. Looking clean!

 

We've made a lot of progress on the chute system. The weather has delayed us quite a bit and we're not in a crazy hurry to get it completed but I would like to utilize it to pull flights. We will be pulling flights in roughly a month but I'd like all the birds out flying well and even routing before we lock them down. Once we get them back out, I'd like to start road training very fast. As you can imagine, Louisiana gets very hot so we'll have to consider everything and do what's best for the birds. 

 

Thank you everyone for the support and please get your birds in the mail today or early next week!

WE WANT YOUR BIRDS!

Good morning Breeders!

 

We are still taking birds for 2 more weeks! We have capacity for thousands of birds but are extremely grateful for the support that we've received so far. The birds are doing incredible and they're up flying very well today. I will continue to do Facebook live videos to give constant updates on your athletes. 

 

I'm excited to close off the acceptance period in a couple weeks and put all my focus on this years participants and get all these birds on the same training program. I'm loving the process and learning so much. If you guys have any questions, please reach out!

STILL TIME TO SEND BIRDS!

Hello Breeders!

 

We are still accepting birds until May 31st! We will do a hand inventory of all birds in the loft this week checking for any injuries or issues with the birds. If we identify anything at all, we will let you know to ensure you have ample time to send replacements prior to June 14th. 

 

We have started construction on our chute system and that will be completed within the next week or 2. We are in ownership of 2 pigeon hauling trailers both for training and races. If you're not following us on Facebook, please do so as we post a lot of information there for our Breeders.

 

Health is great so far and birds are already up flying and routing nicely. Loving every second of it! 

 

PLEASE SEND US YOUR BIRDS!!!

STILL ACCEPTING BIRDS UNTIL MAY 31ST!

Good Evening Breeders!

 

A lot of people have reached out asking if they can still send birds. The acceptance period has been extended to May 31st! Replacements until June 14. If you have them ready, please send them over so we can get them through quarantine and settled. I vaccinate for PMV/ROTA twice 2 weeks apart. If you also vaccinate and don't want them getting a 3rd shot, please let me know. The health in the loft overall is very good. We've only pulled 2 birds total from the main loft with sickness and we're praying things stay under control. We feel we're taking the proper precautions to continue to mitigate sickness but time will tell. 

 

The birds are out loft flying well. I try to do daily videos on Facebook so please follow if you're not already. Facebook page is "Louisiana Perch One Loft Race". Videos can feel repetitive but if you have birds in the race, I'm sure you enjoy watching! We have almost 600 birds in the loft with over 1100 signed up. We'd love to start seeing more birds come in over the next few weeks to get closer to that number! Thank you to all that have sent!

 

We got a new order of hats in so I'll be mailing those out this week. Remember, if you send a team of 6, you get a free Louisiana Perch hat! Also, for every paid entry you get a ticket for a chance to win 4 money prizes. $1000, $500, $250, $250. We also have a raffle for an M3 clock with an antenna pad along with 5 free Activations. Tickets are $25 each of 5 for $100. We're not taking any percentage of the activation money to help pay for expenses so we'd really appreciate your participation in this raffle!

 

I feel very blessed that I get to wake up every day and train pigeons. I do not take it for granted and without your support, this isn't possible so again, Thank you all!

STILL ACCEPTING BIRDS!!

Good morning Breeders!

 

We are still accepting birds until May 31st with replacements until June 14th. The health in the loft is incredible so far and we're doing everything in our power to keep it that way. Thank you for sending healthy birds! 

 

The first several groups are already up loft flying very well and the settling system seems to working well for us. The weather is very bad today so the birds won't go out today but it looks like tomorrow should be another good day for a loft fly.

 

We have purchased a new self loading trailer which will be much more efficient for training the birds! Follow us on Facebook to see that as well as live updates. We will be building our chute system / loading room this week as well. Lots going on over here at the Louisiana Perch! 

 

Many Breeders have signed up that have not sent birds yet. We are still open for 5 weeks and we hope you'll still send! Monday and tuesdays are ideal for sending so please try to get them in the mail today or tomorrow. This race doensn't exsit without you so thank you for your support!

 

Honored and privileged to be able to do this everyday.
