INVENTORY UPDATE

The latest inventory is all the birds with the exception of birds received the past 2 weeks including replacements.  If you have bird(s) missing you can still replace them thru end of July.  We have notified all breeders that we have the bands of the missing birds, either by hawk casualty or sickness.  We have had quite a few birds that have come recently get sick and pass.  We are working very hard to keep holding cages clean and washed down with disenfectant.  The birds in the loft are doing great and in super health.  Approximately the first 400 or so have already had their 9th and 10th pulled and all are poxed.  Many of the younger ones we are not pulling flights however every bird has been vaccinated with PMV and poxed.  Good luck to all.

INVENTORY UPDATEE

Approximately 400 of the older birds have been poxed and 9th and 10th cut and are shut down for 5-6 weeks.  The younger birds are being put in loft slowly and will be clocking in on the existing inventory.  Again if you have bird(s) missing you can send replacements until first week of July.  Any questions contact Steve Miner 619-933-8188.

INVENTORY UPDATEE

If your bird(s) have been at our loft for more than a couple weeks and they are not on the inventory then they are missing.  Again we have had hawk, falcon problems most every day.  There are @ 80 birds that have not been clocked in because they are still in quarantine.  We will be shutting down the older birds and cutting 9th and 10th flights in a week or so.  We will wait 10-14 days before we pull them.  At the same time birds will be poxed.  Any questions call Steve Miner 619-933-8188.  Good luck to all.  We will be takeing replacements thru the first week of July.

INVENTORY UPDATE

OUr latest inventory is on the training tab, we have many birds that are in wincompanion however haven't been clocked because they are still quite young.  However if you are missing a bird(s) and they have been here a couple weeks or more then you can send a replacement and an extra bird if you like.  We have notified many breeders that have lost bird(s) to our ever present hawks.  We have now accepted 712 birds not counting the birds lost.  June 15 is our cut-off however we can take birds the next week as well.  Replacements by July 1 or fairly close to that date.  The large majority are out flying most every day with no problems.  Any questions contact Steve Miner 619-933-8188 or sminervangruen@aol.com.  Good luck to all.
