The weather here has been unpredictable recently. We have been experiencing high winds, heat, humidity, light ran and overcast conditions. This isn’t our typical weather and we have been forced to change up our flying schedule accordingly. We will try to loft fly tomorrow if the weather allows.

The Royal Cup birds are all back out exercising. We still have a few hundred with flights only 3/4 way in. Birds are currently flown in two groups. We fly early mornings and mid afternoon. The overall health is fair. We did run into some mycoplasma (one eye colds) with some of the later birds sent in. We will start pushing the birds in a few weeks once birds start to finish body moult.
We are finishing up the race week itenary and should have that out within the week.
Please call with any questions.

The birds are doing good at this point. Over 1/2 the birds have their flights grown in, and they are ready to go outside. Starting this week, we will begin to let the birds out in groups.

There is still time to book your hotel stay at the Courtyard Marriott. Their contact info can be found on our website.

The overall health and wellbeing of the birds has been good to this point. The older birds have started to molt, and the younger birds are getting accustomed to the loft and surrounding area.
If you have any questions give us a call.
This past week we finished pulling flights and checking the chips on the first group of birds. The overall health of the group was great. All the birds are developing nicely. Once we pull flights on the birds, they will be in the loft for the next 4 weeks as the flights grow back in.
We will continue to accept birds until the middle of June. Keep shipping those birds out early in the week, just in case they get stuck in transit.
If you plan on spending race week with us don’t forget to make your reservations at the Courtyard Marriot San Diego. For more hotel information click on the Accommodations page on our website.
