INVENTORY JULY 31ST UP

Good afternoon everyone

The inventory is up on wincompanion - looks like we have 289 birds there.

I'm going to get a tentative training/race schedule on an update this week so you can see the plan.

The birds are looking great - and enjoying their flying time in the fresh air.

I'll keep you posted!  Tune into Facebook for the Facebook Live posts as well as some videos...

Hope you're enjoying your Civic Holiday weekend!

JULY 25TH UPDATE - INVENTORY UP

Good evening flyers,

Rick was able to get an inventory done today.  The birds are getting lots of loft flying done, and the official training will begin soon.

There are a total of 293 in the module - and we will follow up with a hand inventory soon, so that we know all the bands are working properly.

We hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far and loooking forward to our race season truly beginning!

Have a great week,

MONDAY MORNING UPDATE

Good morning flyers,

Not sure if you got to check out the Facebook Live post from yesterday afternoon - but I did a loft walk through and showed the rain that was coming.

Birds are looking good.  Rick has them flying outside in groups of approximately 100.

It's overcast today - lots of rain so far this morning...hopefully we'll get some pictures/videos of the birds out flying this week for you.

Another invnentory will be coming this week.

Hope you all had a great weekend, and Happy Monday!

SAT. JULY 9TH UPDATE

Evening flyers

After a long 2 days of internet issues, we are happy to say that an inventory is finally posted.

We do think there might be a couple of bands that might not be working as they scanned as unassigned.  We will be doing another hand scan inventory in the next couple of days.

Hang tight as there might be a couple of birds that are not accounted for at this point.

If you tuned into the Facebook Live tonight - you'll be happy to hear that the 2 birds that were "out on the roof" are now safely in the coop.  They decided to pop in through our large man door for the coop. :)

The birds are out loft flying.  They seem very healthy and are eating well.  There are 6 birds in our sick bay, which we are watching closely.

Stay tuned for more pics, Facebook Lives, and INVENTORIES!

Have a great weekend.

Good evening pigeon fanciers,

Rick took a nice video of all the birds in the loft - and I have posted it on Facebook and Instagram.

The electronic banding is complete - I'm awaiting update from our wincompanion contacts for an upgrade so that I can post the list accordingly.

All the birds all loft flying now.  Should have some videos of the loft flying this week - Rick said he's going to help out with the pictures and videos for social media - so I'm excited on that one!

Have a great night,

SUN. JUN. 19TH UPDATE

Good late evening all,

We hope you all had a great weekend, and to all the fathers out there - Happy Father's Day!

Rick and I have done more inventory tonight- taking us longer than we anticipated.

They are feeling great and the health is still strong in the birds.

Most of the birds are out flying now - around the loft.  I'll have to get some video/pictures of this for you - and I'll post onto Facebook/Instagram asap.

Have a great week everyone,

Jeane (aka "The 1st Pigeon Lady")

SUN. JUNE 13TH, 2022 UPDATE

Evening flyers,

A busy day - with me trying to make Facebook Live actually cooperate with me...(2 failed attempts - was sad)...and lots of computer work for the One Loft.

Got the Unikon band entries done for the birds...now it's syncing them to their electronic bands that happens next...stay tuned on that one.

Was an overcast day today - with some rain and rumbling of thunder on and off.  The birds still got to enjoy the fresh air in their aviaries.  

I learned a new pigeon word today - waddles.  Interestingly enough - it has nothing to do with how they walk.  The pigeons' waddles (the "white" part on their beaks) are looking bright and white, healthy indeed.

Posted a video on Facebook - so feel free to check it out.

Hope you had a great weekend, and great week ahead!

SUN. JUNE 5TH, 2022 UPDATE

Good evening flyers,

And it looks like we are done with our drop offs for another year!  I'm almost done my website updates with the bird entries, but of course, still need time for finalizing the numbers and checking them twice - just like Santa Clause :)

Had quite a few lofts decide not to enter this year after reserving their perches, but low and behold we have some great lofts represented this year - and we're looking forward to starting the training!

I promise to start the "Facebook Lives" this week, and be more regular on that - as it's a great, easy way to update you all on how things are looking here in Niagara.

Rick is planning on letting the birds out for loft flies starting this week.  The birds have been spending a lot of hours in their loft aviaries, enjoying the sunshine and fresh air.

The health of the birds is very good.  Rick has pulled out a few birds to separate them from the others, but all in all they all seem to be doing well.

Have a great week everyone,

Jeane (aka "The 1st Pigeon Lady")

SUN. MAY 29TH UPDATE

Good afternoon all

Getting close to 300 birds in the loft and they look great!  Rick is happy with the health of the birds - and next week some loft flies will happen!

Just posted a Facebook Live for you - but the connection was a bit off today - apologies.

Still accepting birds this week so connect with us if you're planning to drop off any.

Stay tuned this week for a tour of our new trailer!

EXTENSION OF THE DROP OFF DATE!

Good morning everyone 


We’ve decided to extend the drop off date until the end of the month. We based this extension on some misconceptions of the order and many people were unsure if they could send any birds.

Please contact us if you’re planning to drop birds off - as we’re all clear here in Niagara.

Excited to see you all!
