SHIP ENTRIES NOW, PAY PERCH FEES SEPTERMBER

Group #1 and #2 PMV booster administered. Pulled a couple of broken flights on a few birds. May have to add a methionine supplement to increase feather quality/moult.

Vita Pro Combo/Probiotics/ACV/Ropa B - not necessarily in that order - keeping the supplements simple during the hot months with minimal use of antibiotics.

Thanks for your support - accepting birds to August 1st for Final Race in January.

SEND BIRDS NOW, PAY PERCH IN SEPTEMBER

Windy few days ahead and slightly cooler temperatures from early morning 70 - 95 degrees during the day.

With the cooler temps, we started a booster PMV on the Group 1 and 2.

Group 3 will be outside this week as soon as the wind subsides. Group 4 is in their aviary.

Any birds this week will be in Section 5. So each section is like a different quarantine to minimize spread of anything....

 

One bird has gone light - breeder notified ~!

As with the temperature swings - we had another bird pulled into the "recovery bay" with excess water in the crop - keep separated until back to normal. Adeno-zap, Ropa B, and Probiotics - seem to work 99% of the time for treating this.

Missing birds updated under "Breeders". Accepting birds through August 1.

Best regards

Our first dust strom blew through yesterday - it has been a windy week.

Another hand inventory will be done Monday to see if any birds are missing.

The birds are currently in four different sections - to minimize any possibility of sickness. We have 7 sections to house brids..

Happy Memorial Day ~! Thanks to all the brave men and women for their selfless sacrifice in times of war and the unheralded heroes in the ongoing current struggle ~!

Very very windy here with 25 mph gusts on Saturday - have not been able to let the birds out for inventory due to high winds.

We checked the birds and removed two that did not look right - will notify breeders shortly if they do not shape up in a couple days.

Best regards

All good at Arizona Classic Derby -

Hand inventory on Monday - will notify breeder if any birds missing ~!

We will stick with the Unikon clock for this season - we had planned to switch to Benzing M1 but was unable to get a response in time possibly to all the ongoing COVID issues. All birds will be chipped and ran through the antenna later this week.

Stay safe ~

POST RACE RETURN BIRD SHIPPING DETAILS

Horizon single bird shipping boxes have NOT arrived as scheduled - so will be delaying return shipping until Monday. We also have a Governor's Stay at Home order - but the post office is still open - so we will ship while practising Social Distancing ~!

If they do not arrive this week, we will be modifiying the old shipping boxes over the weekend to avoid costly shipping charges.

Regards

Steve
