News and Updates

Hi flyers,

A quick update for you...sections 9 & 10 were out flying today.  The weather became ugly late afternoon with thunderstorms and winds.  Most days Rick is alternating sections and all the birds are getting in some loft flying times.

Continuing with the electronic banding this week.  When all are banded and scanned, and confirmed with their appropriate number, we'll be able to get an inventory posted.

Have a great evening, and we'll get some pictures up again soon on Instagram and Facebook!

Evening all

Rick and I wanted to let you know we have finished the electronic bands for sections 5 and 6 now.  Sections 1 through 6 are now done.

We've also posted some great photos of a few of the birds from sections 5 and 6 while we were banding, onto Facebook and Instagram.

It was rainy off and on all day today - the weather looks pretty wet most of the week coming up.

Hope you all have a great Monday, see you soon online!

Good evening everyone,

Was much better weather here today, no rain, and the sun wasn't beating as hard as it has been...great day.

Birds were close to the loft - as it was Rick's own race day (Saturdays always tends to be this way!).  Loft sections were cleaned today and a Facebook Live tour was completed earlier this evening.  Tune into our Facebook page to see the post.

All the birds are looking healthy.  We have banded sections #1 through #4 and are working on the rest of the coop this week.  It's lengthy process, but it's getting there!  I had some issues with entering the data into the unikon program, where I actually had to do it I accidentally deleted the first listing.'s done now.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Evening all,

The weather has been hotter than normal for MANY days now...humidity is crazy, and it's hard to stay outside for very long.  Rick has managed to time loft flies well, having multiple sections out at once.  The birds are starting to fly higher and in bigger groups...great to see.

Electronic bands are on the birds in sections 1 through 4...and I've got ALL the birds band numbers entered in unikon for the electronic banding system.  Still have to scan them through to coordinate the band with their's getting there!

Have a great week everyone,

Good evening flyers

Today there was rain on and off throughout the day - but between the showers Rick was able to loft fly both sections 7 & 8, individually.  Over the last few days he's had all sections out individually and yesterday he had a full 1 through 4 section loft fly - where they we're all together out.  Looked great!

He's had the birds on darkening liquid for about a week now.

We're planning to electronic band on Sunday this weekend - looking forward to easy inventory and posting updates with this.

Thanks everyone for your support!

Good morning pigeon flyers!

It has been quite a few hot and humid days here in Niagara - today even Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for Niagara - there's a humid airmass over the region...making it feel like upper 30s to 40s this afternoon.  This makes air flying time difficult for the young ones.  But we're still working on it.

All of the individual sections - now 1 through 11 have been out one by one on their own, flying around the coop over the past week.  This week, Rick is planning to start sections 1 through 4 flying all together.  Furthermore, the electronic bands for these 4 sections will be put on this week - making inventory so much more efficient!

Sick bay birds are looking good.  Rick is not in a rush to move them out, as he likes to keep a close eye on them for quite a while.

I did a Facebook Live last evening from inside the coop, as Rick was feeding them.  I noted that 5 birds have passed away and their owners have been contacted.  If you haven't been contacted, your birds are still here!

Hope everyone has a great day and stay safe, heatlhy, and cool!

Evening everyone 


Today the wind was too strong, so the birds didn't have any loft time...and Facebook Live didn't happen either.  Hoping the weather is better tomorrow and I can share on Facebook accordingly!

Yesterday, in between the rain spatterings, Sections 1, 2, and 4 had some loft flying time.

Rick is still aiming this week to have the birds in the West Wing (Sections 1 through 4) electronically banded.  This will be great for inventory and allowing you to see that you're birds are here!

Have a great night and we'll hopefully see you tomorrow night!

Evening all,

Weather was sunny and nice today.  Rick had Sections #1 and #2 out for a loft fly, and the bobs were in as well.

Within a week or so, we're hoping to have all of the birds in the West Wing (Sections #1 through #4) electronically banded.  The  clocking pads should also be ready shortly to clock the birds in.  This will make inventory so much easier!

Think the weather is looking half decent for the weekend, so I'll make sure I get out for a Facebook Live soon!

Have a great evening!

Evening everyone,

The weather here is nice and sunny with minimal wind - great for the birds.

Rick had out Sections #4 and #5 for a loft fly, and has been starting to use the bobs/traps more for their return into the coop sections.  The bobs are new to Section #4, and Sections #2 and #3 have been using them more often now.

More "loft flys" will continue as the weather permits of course.

A quick Facebook Live was just posted from this afternoon, so feel free to check out a quick video of the birds who were outside at the time.

Please feel free to reach out with any questions to Rick or myself via email or Facebook Messenger.

Have a great night!



Evening pigeon fanciers,

We just weathered quite the storm...might post the video I just took on our Facebook page!

Both Sections #1 and #4 had air time today - #1 was out earlier today and #4 was later this afternoon.  Sunny all day, until about 6:30 when the wind seemed funny and the skies got incredibly dark.  You could say it was a torrential rain storm...thunder and lightening and all.

Birds are all safe and sound.  The sections that were out today - had a bath as well...Borax and water.  Nice feet and healthy feathers!

There is a Facebook Live post from just before the take a peak if you're on Facebook.

Rick is planning to start the darkening process this week - for 21 days, he'll give the birds darkening liquid.  I'll keep you posted on how that goes!

Have a great night, and see you soon!
