Happy 4th July USA ~~! Wishing you and your family a safe and Happy 4th July celebrations ~!

Birds are outside today -  the groups are still being let out separately throughout the acceptance period and to be kept in their sections to minimize the spread of anything. It has been windy all week and OLR birds were kept in  - on my own local birds there were a few busted chests and banged-up feet.

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY TO ALL THE PIGEON DADS

The fires are burning to the far Northeast of us and South of us in Tucson and with no help from the winds. Seem like judgment day is all around on many fronts - ~!

We did get Groups 2 and 3 out on Friday. Kept them in on Saturday. The winds are less than 10mph today and will get them out again 2 hours before sunset.

On the older birds that are sent in - we are not taking chances - as precautionary we soap those wings down and have pulled 9 and 10 on those birds making them easier to settle.

Any birds arriving this week will join Group 6 in quarantine with full access to aviary.

One bird is MIA - breeder notified!

Happy Father's Day to all the Dads - take the time to be with family today - God bless ~!

SHIP BIRDS NOW, PAY PERCH FEES SEPTEMBER

All good here at Arizona Classic Derby.

We are in a good cycle of health - NO birds in sick bays, and continued use of Probiotics, Ropa B, Apple Cider Vinegar, Vita Pro Combo vitamins and electrolytes.

Very windy few days and we have not been able to let out Groups #3 and #4. Easier to settle birds in 100 degree temperatures (they don't fly), but under windy conditions (very risky).

Remember to take advantage of our perch incentives to pay later, and free entries if you lost birds in our last series - it is the best One Loft deal out there....

 

Best regards

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
