Good Morning Breeders
was going to Toss today but we have had high winds the last few days!! So will try to go tomorro,
birds are doing super healthy and looking sharp. The last two tosses has been in to a stiff head wind and they came super from 18 Miles!!! My clock is missing a few when there stroming the traps the last two tosses I have waited a few hours them let them out again and 90% are flying for another 1 plus and catching the missed birds. We will do 3 25 mile tosses and should be at 65 miles by the end of next week if the weather holds. So before April 15 activation race we will have 3-25 2-32 2-45 4-65 2-95 Miles tosses before we do the 116 mile activation race they will be ready for sure. This weekend I will do a hand inventory and look all birds over real good make sure there in good shape wings and body and they won't be handled again till activation race I hand scan all races so there is nothing missed. I hope you all have a great week!!
Thanks Mark PNWC
GOOD MORNING BREEDERS
WELL THE HEAVY SMOKE HAS FINALLY BLEW OUT AFTER WEEKS OF VERY BAD SMOKE!! I WILL START LETTING BIRDS OUT IN THE AFTERNOON EVERY DAY TO GET THEM GOING AGAIN. HEALTH IS SUPER AND HOLDING SO THATS ALWAYS GREAT NEWS AND WITH THE WEATHER CHANGING BIRDS SHOULD START FLYING GOOD AND MY PLAN IS TO START DOWN THE ROAD IN ABOUT 4-6 WEEKS BEFORE WINTER SETS IN. I DONT CARE WHAT BREEDERS SAY ABOUT SMOKE AND FLYING RACES IN THIS CRAP IT DESTROY"S THE BIRDS. I TRYED TRAINING 3-4 YEARS AGO IN HEAVY SMOKE AND IT KILLED ME AND MANY LOSSES AND BIRDS DIDNT RECOVER FROM ME DOING THAT. THAT'S WHY I WENT TO LATE RACE DONT WANT TO DEAL WITH THE SMOKE THAT TIME OF YEAR EVER, OTHER THEN THAT SAME OLD STUFF BIRDS LOOK GREAT AND THINGS WILL START ROLLING SOON.
THANKS AND HAVE A GREAT WEEK MARK.
