CLOCK PROBLEM ON TODAY'S TOSS

We didn't start clock today until after some of the birds had arrived therefore not all the birds clocked in.  We will be training again tomorrow, hopefully we don't screw up and all the birds are clocked.  We will have an inventory clocking on Thursday.  It looks like rain on Wednesday therefore no training on Wednesday.
