Good Morning. We are still running ADMISTRATION tosses on Wincompanion. What that means is, we can see it but the Breeders can't. We will be doing a hand scan next week and cleaning up about 10 to 12 birds not scanning and showing up on the computer. Once we get out 50 miles we will start running LIVE tosses on the computer with WINCOMPANION.
We have had a few calls about Breeders losses. We don't like it as much as you. Any breeder that loses all their birds before the first race will receive a free perch the next go around. Once the birds are let out of the baskets its "out of our control". We have many tosses at short distances and repeating from the same spot to build up confidence if the toss doesn't go well.
Today's toss was 20 miles in the direction of the race stations. Speeds have been around 1300YPM to 1000YPM. The birds usually stay out for sometimes more that an hour loft flying once they arrive. We have been watching the air quality because of the fires to the North of us. If it is hazy and air quality index is up we do not fly the birds.
Training has commenced for Top Breeders Challenge OLR.
The birds have had 5 short tosses and are out about 15 miles.
There were 447 birds in the clock before settling began. After the birds were settled and loft flying everyday at least once and most of time two loft flys per day. They were ranging and gone everyday for at last an hour for the last two weeks before training begin.
As training started we had 422 birds in the clock. Training started on Friday September 2, 2022
Tommorrow there will be an ADMINISTRATION CLOCKING and the 7th toss will be a live clocking update on Wincompanion.
With Coopers and Falcon attacks being a common occurrence in our daily routine the attacks have been our biggest enemy with our losses. Health is excellant and most of the birds look totally outstanding.
Good Luck !
Good morning Breeders !
The last group has now joined groups one and two. So, now there is one group of birds loft flying every day.
We have been doing ADMINISTRATION SCANS and have around 422 birds.
Our local Falcon and Coopers are still around and helping us with loft flying. However, the birds are getting smart and are avoiding any casualties. The birds missing are at a minimun.
Basket Training has commenced as the birds have an open basket on the loading shute to go in and out of during their time in the loft.
Once training starts we will post RESULTS on the WINCOMPANION site. Training will start sometime in the first two weeks of September.
Thank you for your SUPPORT.
First 2 groups are ranging and are let out every morning. Besides falcons and coopers helping to exercise the birds there has been only a couple of birds not quite fast enough to escape.
Group 3, the newest arrivals and replacement birds are let out after the main group ( which consists of Group 1 and 2) are all in.
Group 3 birds are settled and are grouping. It has been one week and they are flying well around the loft.
Road training will start sometime after the 1st of September. At that time we will start posting under RESULTS on Wincompanion.
WE STAYED OPEN A LITTLE LONGER FOR BREEDERS TO SEND IN THEIR REPLACEMENTS. TOTALS ARE 91 BREEDERS 455 BIRDS.
APPROXIMATELY 75% OF THE BIRDS ARE SETTLED WITH THE YOUNGEST GROUP STILL ON THE NET.
MIKE HAS HIS GRANDDAUGHER ENTER REPLACEMENT BIRDS INTO ADMIN SO THEY SHOULD BE SHOWING UP SHORTLY.
ON MY END I WILL THEN UPLOAD FROM PIDEXX INTO WINCOMPANION. ALSO, EXTRA ANTENNAS HAVE BEEN ADDED FOR MORE ACCURACY IN SCANNING THE BIRDS WHEN TRAPPING.
WIFI IS HOOKED UP ALONG WITH THE COMPUTER AND YOU SHOULD START SEEING LOFT FLYING RESULTS IN A COUPLE OF WEEKS. THAT SHOULD ALSO COINCIDE WITH THE LAST GROUP COMIMG OFF THE NET IN THEIR SECTION.
THERE HAVE BEEN VERY FEW HAWK ATTACKS. AND VERY FEW BIRDS LOST IN THE SETTLING PROCESS. HEALTH IS EXCELLENT.
THANK YOU TO ALL THE BREEDERS FOR YOUR SUPPORT. GOOD LUCK TO ALL.
Breeders that need replacements have been contacted.
Health is great and settling groups 1 and 2 is also going well.
The newest arrivals and replacement birds will be "On The Net" until ready to join groups 1 and 2
