we gave the birds their 4 th toss at 4 mi today, we will give them another toss friday then start clocking them
they are coming ok despite the temp. last night at 8pm it was still 91 degrees and no rain which we need badly
breeders we dod our 3rd toss this morning from 3 mi. we released in 2 groups and the birds came ok, its sure hot. yesterday it hit 100 here in chandler and today already around that mark. we will start clocking them soon just homing for it to cool off some
THIS MORNING WE LOADED THE BIRDS AND TOOK THEM A SHORT WAYS DOWN THE ROAD. RELEASED THEM IN 3 GROUPS.
THEY HAD A HEADWIND BUT IT DIDN'T SEEM TO BOTHER THEM, THEY HEADED RIGHT HOME. I DIDN'T HOOKK UP THE CLOCK AND PROBABLY WON'T UNTIL THEY GET OUT A LITTLE FARTHER.
JUST WANTED YOU ALL TO KNOW WHAT WAS GOING ON AT LUCKY 17 ( VERY HOT TODAY)
We ran the birds in the training crates this morning for the first time, some are still mounting around head/neck so we are waiting
for that to complete before we start training. we will continu the crate training every day until training starts
the birds are being given free loft for the next few days as dove season is here.
the birds look good and i found a couple chips missing so i have re-chip them
it is pretty humid today as we had some rain yesterday, but we sure needed it
we will begin training the birds to load in the crates soon and start training as
soon as we feel the weather is ok
thanks for your participation this year
THIS WEEKEND WE ARE PULLING FLIGHTS ON ALL RACE BIRDS AND INSPECTING EACH BIRD . RIGHT NOW WE HAVE 3 BIRDS WITH HURT LEGS ( FROM ROUTING) AND ARE IN THE HOLDING PENS. WE HAVE THE BIRDS ON AMOXICELLIN AS WE ARE EXPERIENCING SOME LOSSES I THINK FROM ECOLI. THE SYMTOMS ARE THE SAME AS ALWAYS, THE BIRD LOOKS LISTLESS ONE DAY AND DEAD THE NEXT. ALL BIRDS HAVE BEEN VACCINATED ON ARRIVAL WITH THE ROTO VACCINE FOR PMV.
WE GIVE THE BIRDS A BATH ABOUT 2 X EACH WEEK WHICH THEY SEEM TO ENJOY. WE HAVE ALSO BEEN GIVING THEM OPEN LOFT FOR ABOUT 2 WEEKS, WE WILL NOW SHUT THEM DOWN FOR A WHILE JUST LETTING THEM EXERCISE ONCE DAILY UNTIL THE LAST FLIGHT IS MOSTLY GROWN IN.
IT IS VERY HOT HERE NOW, AROUNG 98 TO 100 DEGREES EACH DAY WITH NO RAIN IN THE NEAR FORCAST.
HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GOOD 4TH OF JULY, KEEP SAFE
sorry guys, i ran all birds out today to get a clocking update, but later found one of my enter/exit doors came open so only about 3/4 of the birds clocked, will repeat it tomorrow and post asap.
