Hi All

 

Birds are doing great. Flying mornings and afternoons.   I have one that hurt his foot yesterday so he is staying in until it gets better. Moult is going really well and most are through it now.   Please follow us on Facebook for those who know how to do that  wine pigeon race on Facebook.  I put pictures and videos on regularly.  Check out our videos in wincompanion too.

 

Thanks!

Hi All

 

Birds are doing great. They are in mounting nicely and are really starting to fly well around the house.  So far hawks have been scarce so we are in full flying mode now.   If you have not heard from me your bird is still here  

 

Thanks!

Hi All

 

Birds are doing well and are pretty much flying around the house like crazy.  There are still a few that have not been out ( mostly replacements) which will be going out the end of this week.

 

Health is looking good.  They are moulting well.

 

Thanks!

HI All

 

Birds are doing well.  We have a big group flying and health is great.  There have been a few hawks of late but we are managing. 

There are a few perch fees outstanding. Please get them in ASAP.  I dont want to run after fanciers who have not paid.

 

Thanks!

HI All

 

It has been extremely hot this week in California.  I have not let the some of the birds out. The ones that are flying around have been going out in the mornings but come down in 10 minutes. 

 

We have them on electrolites and they are doing well.

 

We are only accepting replacements from now on in.

 

Thanks!

Hi All

 

We have just a few days left to accept birds. All birds are doing great. We had a hawk scare 2 days ago but it seems to have left us now. 

Just wanted to follow up on the 200 mile race  I use this "race" as a trainer   The cost to enter this race is $100 per bird  It is an "optional" race For fanciers.  If you don't want to pay for this race that is solely up to you.  All birds irrespective of been paid for or not are going to the station.  If you pay the entry, you can win prizes.  If the bird is not paid for it is not going to win anything. If we get 200 PAID entries into the race we will give the winning bird a car(or cash equivalent   If less than 200 PAID entries we will pay out like a normal race I.e.. At least 12-15 places.

 

I will be at Jedds tomorrow between 9-10.

 

Thanks

C
