News and Updates

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 ~



All is well - birds are healthy ~!

We will have a pickup at JEDDS this Friday May 8th at 10AM ...

call 480-215-4255



Hope this finds everyone well amidst these pestilent times of uncertainty.

  • All requested birds have been shipped.
  • Our OB season was cancelled to Corona VIrus (stay-at-home requests from Governor) one week after our OLR 365 mile Final.
  • We can hold all remaining birds to fly our next OB season or you may request return shipping or request me to pair them up for you and breed a round for you.
  • Up to that point (6 races to 365 miles), we did win 1st Average Speed, 1st Champion Bird, 2nd Champion Loft, 2 Federation wins against 36 flyers/~800 birds.


We will schedule a pickup at Jedds in May, June and July – please give us a headsup so we can schedule the time as it gets closer.


Here are the WIN-WIN specifics of our season.

  1. Accepting birds through August 1 – replacements thru August 15.
  3. Perch stimulus:

$90 perch fees each for 6 or more – if you lost birds last season, 1 free for every 3 entries.

               Example 1: Enter 6 birds, add 2 free = 8 perches for $540 ( $67 per bird).

               Example 2: Enter 3 birds, add 1 free = 4 perches for $300 ($75 per bird).

  1. On top of that, Entry fees due at 230 mile race ~~~!!!!!!!
  2. 2018 – No blowhome final 1260 ypm with 985 mile training.

            2019 – No blowhome final 8+ hrs with 1265 mile of training before 1st race

            With training between races (13 tosses between 5 races = 650 miles).

  1. Live video streaming for releases/arrivals with our new Gigablast High Speed Internet at lofts, live login for GPS tracking on training trailer.
  2. Five (5) really impressive trophies for Average Speed, 1st place ACD350, ACD275, ACD230,ACD200.


I pray that everyone stays safe, practice social distancing and heed those in authority.


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.




Checks/paypal is going out by Monday. 

If you have over $600, please send a W-9 if we do not have one from you in previous years.

Alternatively, you can leave a credit towards this next series and reduce the reporting of the $.

Bird return requests have been noted and will ship out on Monday.


Looking back, we trained a lot more than we intended to after the early challenges in getting the birds to the races.

We did 1915 miles of official road training (1265 miles before 1st race, and 13 training tosses between the 5 races totaling 650 miles).

We felt it was necessary to get the conditioning with those 45 - 55 miles repetitive tosses.

The website will be cleaned up and archive the recently completed series. We are adding content to the Rules, and Media pages and

2020 Sign-up is Open. Look for our pending "Perch Stimulus" offer, and complementary perches to those who lost birds in our recently completed series -


Best regards




8+ hours on the wing with variables winds along the course, 3 birds arrived from the East - what a tremendous performance - congrats to these two breeders Lazy AC Loft (Al Coury) and RDM Syndicate based in Ontario.

The consensus here at the lofts were 2:30 - 3:00 pm; I was inclined to more like 4 pm. Hauler indicated that birds took one circle and oriented immediately towards home.

27 day birds - even at dark when we locked the lofts. More birds are trickling in this morning. The clocks will stay on through Tuesday. I would like to mail birds back on Monday ($60 per 1 bird box; $10 for each additional bird).

Any birds not requested will automatically continue with our local races - and you may have them back after the races complete.

If you had more than $600 in winnings and we do not have your info from past years - please send a completed W-9 (scanned to email  or regular mail). Checks and paypal will go out shortly ~!


Thank you for your support this season in spite of all the challenges we faced. I will have more commentary on this when the dust settles.


***** RELEASED *****

Released from Ft Hancock TX a 7:00AM; 46 degrees, under partly cloudy skies and light NW winds (headwind).

The normal route  is usually Ft Hancock - Las Cruces 300 - Deming 250 - Lordsburg 200 - Safford 100 -  if you want to check the weather along those stations.

Based on the steady winds, the birds could be pushed north of those stations which could make for a long day - based on yesterdays Arizona Federation race from Organ NM. All the local pigeon guys are predicting a tough race.

The good news is most stations are under 10 mph along the course - but 10 mph headwinds/crosswinds for 365 miles is a challenge - as such birds were appropriately loaded ~!

Best of luck to all - stay safe, healthy and prayng for God's mercy to heal the land, and deliver us from this pestilence ~!


Birds are en route to the release point - it looks like a very tough race tomorrow !!

Staring at the Windy App - it could be a long day with SW and West winds from start to finish - 

5-12 mph steady winds for the first 100 miles and will push the birds north and later in the day headwinds WNW...

Just thinking out loud - tough Federation race today from 300 miles and winds not expected to get better Mon or Tuesday.

Considered shortening the race to Tornillo Tx - but that's only 15 miles shorter at 348 miles ... so may not help !! 
The birds are in great condition and loaded well and have good body weight and fed at 10 am !!


We have completed our final training toss today - birds tore it up ~ I believe they are ready for this final and their toughest and a very different challenge from 363 miles Ft Hancock TX!  It has been a very rough series with delayed starts, stressed birds and stressed handler, maybe a viral something in the weeks leading up to the 1st race, some human intervention and tampering,..... who knows !! The birds that are here to this point are all champions - giving me 110% every single day and completing every training/racing/loft flying task to date.

I do not see any favorable winds for Sunday - and  looks like 5-10 variable head/cross/side winds along the course - so they will  get zero help!

For those that must have their birds back after the series - please check the returns list after the race and let me know by Tuesday 24th.... otherwise they will continue training as

the remaining birds will join our Arizona Federation series in progress with 5 races to go (294 miles, 363 miles, 400 miles, 155 miles, 500 miles). Our local team is doing extremely well so far against 36 lofts and 800+ birds. And you can also have your bird back after the local OB series - no problem at all ~!

... stay tuned basketing list later....
