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.

Birds will be clocking in all day today, as most of you know we have 2 loffts side by side and birds will be out on settling cage  alll day.  We will be contacting breeders that will be able to to send replacements if necessary.  We lost @10 birds to general weakness and got sick plus we know we lost some birds to our constant hawk attacks when birds are out.  We are very happy with the overall health of birds and they are looking good.  We are taking birds until June 15 or when we have 750.  We now have @675 birds in the loft.  We will be pulling and cutting 9th and 10th flights at end of June and then birds will be left in loft for 4-5 weeks.  Any questions contact Steve Miner, 619-933-8188.
