The 2017 California Classic is getting ready!!
We ask all breeders (past and new) to review the rules and sign the acknowledgement form when sending their youngsters. Please call if you have questions or concerns.
We have a few suggestions before sending your young.
1. Give a PMV shot 5-7 days before sending.
2..Give 1/2 tablet canker pill 2 days
3. Spray for lice 3 days before shipping.
4. Make sure your shipping boxes are clean when placing your young. We have experienced birds 3 years in a row. A breeder having someone else mail their birds and birds upon arrival full of canker. Why....dust, droppings, cobb webbs from using a old box.
5. Optional is administering an ideal pill. 2-3 days prior to shipping.
We have found this to be the protocol for one loft racing. The Health starts when you ship.
Good luck to all of you in your 2017 breeding
1099's for the winners in 2016 will be mailed first part of February. Thank you for your patience.

The reservation page will be complete the first week of January. We need to mail out all birds before we clear 2016 data. We appreciate all those breeders wanting to join. Please keep in mind, breeders who have participated and are in good standing are grandfathered. We do not know how many from 2016 are back in. There are many, but there are a few that just cannot follow rules and they will be broomed.
