News and Updates
JULY 15TH UPDATE Pulled the 10th flight on all birds yesterday and did a hand inventory. Today I will inventory the birds in isolation (4 or 5 birds).
JULY 13 UPDATE Well it is Friday the 13th. So far so good!

I installed 2 new Lazer "SPEED" antennas. I had come to the conclusion one of my antennas has a bad field. I am always missing a couple of birds. This has always been the case since I first bought the system from Siegel's years ago. Once I blocked off the bad field I have had no more problems. So I replaced both antennas.

The birds are looking good. Flagged the birds up for 30 minutes this morning. 

JULY 11 UPDATE Birds were scared up several times this morning. Then let out in the late afternoon so they can start to get used to flying in the heat. It was only 90 degrees this evening. 
JULY 2 Today got all the birds out and scared them all up with the flag one time. Will do this each day longer and longer working up to 45 mins.
06/30 It is supposed to be over 100 today. The birds will be kept in today and tomorrow and back out Monday. This way they can all get good food and water for those who don't come in like they should or have gotten chased off by the hawks and don't return till the afternoon.
06/28 Today all birds forced out. We scared the birds up and birds looked like bees swarming in the air. Loft was cleaned and sprayed while birds were out.

All birds forced out today for open loft. clock set to do an inventory. 6 birds are back in isolation. All in all the birds are looking good.

We are starting the 2018 season with 742 birds

As a bonus anybody that has a lost or a missing bird as of Today will get a free perch for the 2019 season.

I attempted to do a hand inventory on June 7th and 8th while pulling flights and ran into some technical difficulties trying to upload the results. while troubleshooting the problem I lost the inventory. Problem is fixed and will do another inventory the end of next week.

I just started letting the birds out again after introducing the next group of birds in with the main flock last week. The last group just got vaccinated yesterday and moved to their own section in the main loft. Birds are looking real good. 

The last couple of days it has been in the mid 90"s and it has not seemed to phase the birds as they got in the air and flew for a bit, landed, and got up again.
YESTERDAY Yesterday was loft cleaning day and the loft is clean and disinfected. I have introduced the next group into main population. I will run all birds thru the traps today to do an inventory.  The birds are looking great.
LOFT CLEANING DAY Today is loft cleaning day
