WEATHER REPORTS

I looked at AccuWeather, NOAA Weather Service and USA Weather Service on the Top Breeders Challenge page. All were different.

So, the best weather report today was "Look out the Window Weather Service"  (WWS)

Mike let the birds out in Colfax at 0815.  SUNNY AND CALM  59 degrees.

I will make my way to the Loft at around 0945 and wait for the birds. I will use WWS Weather service and fill in report for Arrival Weather in Petaluma.

Good Luck to All !

LIFE ON THE FARM

So much for live clocking. Well pump guy came today and turned off power. So so sorry. 

Anyway, birds are all back for the most part. The 10 birds that showed up on the clock were loaded after power came on.

Next toss already loaded for Wednesday. Toss #20 will be Friday. I will be back on Thurday.

Stay tuned folks it can only get better. 

Thanks,

Mike G.
