News and Updates

Wincompanion is up to date. If you are missing a bird for any reason please feel free to send a replacement by June 16th. Overall, losses have been very minimal through quarantine and settling. 

The birds are currently in two groups. The first group of about 80 birds is loft flying daily and they are routing nicely in the morning. The second group is coming along and is in the process of settling. 

9th and 10th flights will be pulled in the upcoming week. It is critical that birds are not moulting the 9th and 10th when we get to the final races in the series as they will need to be able to put time on the wing to finish the series. 

The birds are being fed plenty of minerals and we monitor the health daily. We have a few more birds arriving this week and some replacements on the way as well. We appreciate the support! Reach out if you have any questions!

Hello Breeders,

Tonight we did a trap training/inventory. The birds are trapping very well and are looking great overall! The breeder lists are up to date on wincompanion. If you are missing a bird you can send a replacement. Very few are missing. Settling has gone quite well overall.

As a reminder we have extended our acceptance to June 1st! Send us your birds and we'll get them tested for you! This will be a great series and we're thankful for your support!

Hello Breeders,

We ran an inventory loft fly tonight. The birds health is looking great. There have only been a few losses during settling. If your bird is missing you are welcome to send a replacement.

From here on out we will be posting frequent loft fly/inventory data on wincompanion along with videos on our facebook page to keep you all in the loop with your birds! We are excited to be starting another year running this race and wants to sincerely thank those of you who have supported us this year.

Also, we will extend our deadline to accept birds until June 1st! We hope that by extending to June 1st it might help a few extra breeders join the race.

Please consider joining our race if you are looking for a race with working speeds and good returns. Last year we had 85% returns on our final race with 1200 ypm speeds. This is through the mountains of the high desert throughout Nevada and into Southern Idaho. The loft will hold 500 birds. We are willing to put in the work and hope you'll consider sending before June 1st!

UPDATE 4.2.2023 Hello,

We've received 68 birds so far with more coming in the next month. The birds have looked great and health is good. The majority of the birds are all trap trained. The biggest challenge we've faced the past two weeks is rain and/or snow nearly every day and frequent high winds. That has made it challenging to get the birds out more frequently. The weather should begin clearing up soon and the birds will be out as often as possible. 

As a reminder, we'll be using the Tauris clocking system. It is very reliable and we are currently setting it up. We will begin posting loft fly data to wincompanion in the near future so you can keep an eye on your birds. We will also be posting videos to the facebook page so please check it out!

It's not too late to sign up! If you're not currently in the race we encourage you to sign up if you're looking for a race with working speeds!

The first group of birds will begin trap training this week! Thank you for sending us healthy birds so far! Birds are receiving probiotics and plenty of minerals. It's going to be a fun year! Keep sending!

We are now accepting birds for the 2023 series! We look forward to receiving your birds and are excited to run this series again. The race course is South to North through the Nevada Desert. Your birds will be tested with working speeds out to 350 miles. Our final race last year was 1232 YPM and our average speed winner was 1326 YPM. Speeds will vary with conditions but should be similar overall this upcoming year! Last years final was 8 hours on the wing. 

We will be using the Tauris clocking system! Looking forward to flying your birds!
