LAST WEEK TO SEND BIRDS

Dear Fliers,

 This is the last week to send birds!!! You have until Saturday, May 25th.
Unless you are sending replacements. We will accept replacement birds until June 8th. This gives us a chance to get the last groups of birds out to make sure they will stick around. 
If you are missing birds, you may send 1 or 2 birds as replacements for each bird that dies or gets lost. If a bird dies we will contact the breeder. If you are missing a bird and haven't heard from us; you can assume it went missing off the loft.
We don't let the birds sit much. After a new group is done in the break in pen and is introduced to the main flock, we give them 4 or 5 days of doing whatever they want with as little as interference as possible. Then we begin encouraging them to fly. We aren't flagging yet. We just want them to make a few laps to gain some confidence. 
We disinfect the loft at least once a week, and disinfect and change out the waterers every couple days.

MAY 7TH UPDATE

Dear Fliers,

 Last week felt like Springtime!... This week, not so much. It has been cold and wet. The birds are being let out twice a day every day the weather allows. We are still having hawks bother the birds, twice this week, they got scattered. We have done a few inventories, so be sure to check that your birds are accounted for. 
If you are missing birds, you may send 1 or 2 birds as replacements for each bird that dies or gets lost. If a bird dies we will contact the breeder. If you are missing a bird and haven't heard from us; you can assume it went missing off the loft.
We don't let the birds sit much. After a new group is done in the break in pen and is introduced to the main flock, we give them 4 or 5 days of doing whatever they want with as little as interference as possible. Then we begin encouraging them to fly. We aren't flagging yet. We just want them to make a few laps to gain some confidence. 
We disinfect the loft at least once a week, and disinfect and change out the waterers every couple days. 
 
 We made a mistake when making May 20th the last receiving day. It was overlooked that was a Monday. You may send birds the week of May 20th, making May 25th the last receiving day.

HAPPY EASTER!!!

Dear Fliers,

 Happy Easter! I hope everyone had a great weekend. We have had a lot of birds come in over the past two weeks. We are now over 300 birds in the loft. The weather here this past week hasn't been ideal for letting new birds out to fly. It's been really rainy and high wind gusts at times. So we have kept everything contained to the aviaries and fly pen. We just got the clock back. We will get all the chips downloaded and everything updated this week. So if everything goes good watch for an online inventory later this week. Once we get everything up and running properly, we will do regular inventories every 3 to 5 days.

FEBRUARY 20TH UPDATE

Dear Fliers,

   The first few shipments of birds came in last week, and they looked great. We put the flight pen up as well last week and all the new birds have already been in and out of the aviary and are flying to the ground and back up to the landing board and are getting the hang of things.
   We will take birds until May 20th. Please vaccinate your birds at least 10 days before sending if possible. The birds are vaccinated and chipped upon arrival. Please send birds at a minimum of 35 days old. 40+ days old is ideal. 
 
Thank You Breeders that shipped this week:
Brook Loft

  • If you won a Free Perch Fee last year. It covers the full $125 amount of a perch fee for this year. Sorry, that has been a little confusing where we changed the perch fees this year. 
 
  •  There is now a printable entry form on the website to send with the birds it's on the home page part way down. Also here is the link for it: 3pcEntryForm.pdf (plymouthpeak.com) This is very helpful for us.
 
This is the last week I will put a lot of the information below in the updates for a while so please take note of the following:
 
  •   We are going to keep the Final Race at 350 miles for this year. We have talked to a few breeders getting opinions and suggestions, and if you would like to weigh in, please feel free to do so. Send a short text or fill out the suggestion part of the entry form with your birds.  
  •    The other important change to take note of with the race schedule is that we are moving the 200-mile race out to 233 miles. Historically the 200-mile release point has given us the most problems. We are going to go past it and gain some elevation for the birds, and hopefully help them get lined out a little better this year.
  •   So here is the race schedule for 2024 Races:
 Activation Race - 110 Miles
Race 1 - 159 Miles
Race 2 - 233 Miles
Race 3 - 250 Miles
Race 4 - 312 Miles
Race 5 - 350 Miles 
 
  • More info for 2024:  

Beginning Perch Fee Due with the birds:

For every 2 birds send 1 for Free (Optional)

2 for $100 + 1 Free    8 for $280 + 4 Free

4 for $180 + 2 Free    10 for $300 + 5 Free

6 for $240 + 3 Free    12 for $360 + 6 Free

Ending Perch Fee: $75 Due for every bird that clocks on the Activation Race. (This includes the birds that had a free beginning perch fee.)

The point system will mainly be used again this year to award the top birds, and a few of the top average speed birds will get paid as well similar to last year. 

At least 75% of the prize money this year will be paid out on the final race. 

Entry Fees - $300
