CLOCKING INVENTORY

Today we are doing a clocking inventory.  As most of you know we have the birds in 2 lofts and we are flying one loft in the morning and one in the evening.  The inventory for the morning loft is clocked in and the afternoon birds will be clocked in later today.  They are doing well as we are preparing to start training in a couple weeks.  Questions call Steve at 619-933-8188.  Good Luck!!

CLOCKING INVENTORY

We finally got new traps and antennas installed after some trying times.  We now have incurrred a problem with the computer that I'm pretty sure can be corrected tomorrow.  Therfore I'm very hopeful we will finally have a clocking inventory on line tomorrwo.  All is well with birds, they are still locked up waiting for 9th and 10th to grow out.  Thanks for your patience in advance, Steve

UPDATE

We have had trouble getting the bobs for our new traps on the older loft so we haven't been able to do an inventory.  Hoping to get it done this week.  The older group 9th & 10th have been pulled and the younger group will have thiers pulled in 2 days.  Health continues to be very good.  Have had a few hawk problems that seems to be simply a fact of life.  Birds are locked up until flights get at least 1/2 way in.  Weather has been high 70's-low 80's.  Will get inventory up on training page asap.

UPDATE

We are currently replacing the antennas is one of the lofts and increasing the number of holes for birds to trap thru.  Consequently we will have to wait til this project is over until we do an inventory trapping.  Birds are great, going out every day.  Will cut,  then pull 9th and 10th of older group on 1st of July.  The younger group 2 weeks after them.  Thank, Steve  619-933-8188

UPDATE ON SAN DIEGO HOLIDAY CLASSIC

We have closed the race except for replacements.  Breeders with missing birds have been contacted, a closcking inventory will be on the training icon in a couple days.  Health has been excellent, hawks have been a problem but no different from previous years, they are always a problem.  Birds are going out every day learning the surroundings etc.
