LUCKY 17 UPDATE

hello breeders

not much going on at lucky 17,  we just put the birds thru a respirtory treatment and the birds are doing fine.  they have open loft most days and fly in the mornings, then back in the loft during the middle of the day then fly in the evenings.   their last flight is almost grown in .   we will start training around the 3rd week of sept, when the tempatures get lower.  we fly from north to south,   and have for years,  we find this is a very good  course.   we have had rain recently and they are forcasting rain for the next 10 days.    so keep tuned in and if you have any questions, just email me at   okpigeon@yahoo.com

 

thanks

JUNE 30 AT LUCKY 17

hi Breeders

today at lucky 17 we pulled the 10th flights and vaccinated the birds for pox.  the weather was cool today with a light rain that came in the afternoon, so i thought it a good day to do this.  it's been around 95 degrees most days now, so this temp/raiin was nice to see.   the birds are given a bath daily and have open loft on most days so they are getting out and flying/routing.

we don't have as many birds this year but this is the case with 95 % of the one loft races we've looked at on wincompanion.

but regardless, we will have our normal races this year.   Hope all of you have  nice july 4th  and be careful with thos fireworks.

 

thanks
