Hello to all breeders,
sorry inventory is down. The new clock and antennas have been here this week.
I have laptop and case built for clock and laptop in loft. I Think I have enough supplies
for the new power requirements.
I have been working hard for 4-5 hours in the mornings watching the birds
and trying to stay outside until only a few are left to be safe. The hawks are
getting aggressive. the birds are trapping well except 30 daily. I am Working on that.
I use my 20 ft dancing man to help keep them up and flying. they are loft flied daily weather permitting.
now that most come in quickly it is easier to work around a potential storm.
Your birds are my priority but several other issues require the rest of my attention
after the birds fly daily. That is why i have not finished getting the new clock and atennas
installed. its seems to take forever to get all the pieces together finished. hopefully it will be
completed by monday hopefully earlier.
the morning weather is nice and cool. Days are cooling done. better than last year.
monsoons should be gone.
Thanks for your understanding and support. We are working hard to make this a great season.
on Sept 22Nd 3 birds returned. I updated them
on the 21st training inventory. Weather today is cloudy, stormy windy
occasionally rainy but on radar to ran for
several more hours. So the birds are not flying
today. Monsoon season officially ends in 5 days.
hello to all breeders, Hope everyone is doing well!It was a very discouraging day Sunday.Two cooper hawks attacked the birds several times scattering them and chasing them. They were in small groups and coming home throughout the day. Many birds were missing and some returned later the next day. The birds returning home were exhausted.
Sept 17 the clock had 410 birds not 379.
it did not transmit I guess before I reset the
clock this morning. The birds are out today.
The last few days the hawks have been
scaring the birds. Some may have flown too
far had trouble with daytime heat. Morning is only
cool enough time to get them flying and grouping good. the temperatures are still triple digit. the humidity finely
seems to be low again.
Hello to all breeders, The temperatures are still in the triple digits. We are working daily with the birds. The mornings
are in the mid 70s starting the day. Some of the birds are grouping.
The race season is scheduled for November and December as of now. The younger group is still molting.
Today the birds were spooked several times this
morning by a hawk. They were scattered and flying
Your birds are in good shape. The computer issues have been solved I believe.
The last of the birds should have ebands Now.
Inventory is still having some issues. Some birds transmitted
today. Which is an improvement. But not all. So , We are working
on the issue. Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience. I know
everybody enjoys looking at the inventories And trainings.
Have a great weekend!
