WE HAVE ROOM FOR 650 BIRDS BUT WOULD LIKE TO STAY AT 500 BIRDS THAT'S A GREAT NUMBER TO MANAGE. I ORDRERD IN 600 DOES OF VACCINES THIS YEAR JUST IN CASE YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT'S GOING TO SHOW UP, AS EVERYONE KNOW'S SOUTH AFRICA WAS CANCELD TILL THIS WEDESDAY I WAS EXCITED I FEEL LIKE US ALL I HAD A PRETTY GOOD ONE THERE WE WILL SEE HOW GOOD IT IS ON WEDESDAY!!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING WEEKEND

Good morning breeders 

I hope all of you had a great day with family and friends on thanksgiving!! 

This year I will be expecting around 400 birds and I will only take that many.So the breeders who have been in my race I would like for you to sign up for how many birds you will be sending!! I have been getting many new breeders signing up and I want room for the breeders who have been in my race. This year we have made no changes to the race but adding more breeders and birds why change when things are going well!!!! I am building a new loft 12x70 May be a little over kill for 400 birds but that's what I fill will keep the birds even more healthy.If for some reason we get more then 400 sign ups I will grandfarher the old breeders and take 1st come bases till we receive 400 birds.We have made this race one of the best on % of returnes and training the birds like they should be And keeping them healthy.Hope to see you all back for 2016 with even more birds and breeders then ever before. I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!

Thanks Mark Mourton
