Hello Breeders, With help from my son and his friend we were able to complete the hand inventory before the hottest point of the day. We stressed the birds a little so now there being rewarded with a nice cool bath and plenty of feed. There were 2 birds with bad bands that are not on the list. There were two or three birds that did not trap yesterday. I pulled 4 additional birds that didnt feel just right. All breeders were notified. If You are missing birds you have Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday to send a replacement.
Hello Breeders, We will be conducting a hand inventory of all birds over the course of the weekend. Next Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday will be the last few days to send replacements.
Hello Breeders, If you missed todays live video on Facebook i encourage you to watch it. If you are not on the page request to be added and i will add you.
Below is a list of birds and breeders who have had a bird pulled because it was a little lite. I encourage you to send a replacement ASAP. If you need a little time call me and we will arrange something.

Hello Breeders, It appears we are struggling with some circovirus in the loft. As of now it seems to be more prevalent in the quarantine section. I will be sending off samples to the lab and find out exactly what we are dealing with. Once we have the results we will update you again. This is the worst part of running a OLR. There is simply nothing we can do to prevent it. Its a virus and has to run its course. If i pull your bird from the loft i will notify you by phone. The majority of birds seem to be fine and acting like they should. I will continue the daily live feed videos on Facebook.
The inventory that has taken place over the past couple of days is showing just over 100 missing birds. hopefully its an antenna issue. We will run an inventory this weekend if necessary will extend the Replacement deadline another 10 days to the 25th to help accommodate your replacement needs. If we feel we need to push the race dates back a bit we will. As always we will let the birds be the judge of that.
Hello Breeders, We simply are getting to much rain today to have a chance to get the birds out. We have had 5+ inches in three days and forecast for another 6-7 days. We will continue to try and get them out. Thank you, Rex
Hello Breeders, No loft flying today we have severe weather here and its forecasting the same all next week. Hope everyone has a safe Memorial weekend. Rex
