Just noticed that it's been nearly a year since I posted anything. 2014 was a pretty good year for the birds. Won some races and enjoyed flying in the AU Convention. Won a little money and had fun. Breeders are on eggs and things will go pretty much as usual. Making do e plans for sending birds off yo a few OLRs. OB race season will be here soon enough but Im ready for spring to come.

I've gotten a few AU Convention birds and I'll be ready to wean my first round of babies I raised, this week. Put my Widowhood pairs together on Valentines Day so it won't be long and they'll be starting to loft fly a bit and then the season will be coming up. 2014 is well on the way.

Put my Breeders together yesterday.....several new pairings so I'm anxious to see what they will produce. I waited a bit longer this year before putting them together and plan to raise fewer of my own since I'll be getting a good number of birds for the AU Convention Race. Should be a fun YB year.

Once again I got very lucky.......our young bird season has come to an end. I was fortunate to have the first three birds on the Champion Young Bird list, and won the Average Speed category. The Champion bird is a full brother to the hen that was the Champion Short and Middle distance bird during our Old Bird season. I just have the Midwest Convention race yet to come, hoping to do well but it will be a challenge with lots of good birds and good flyers to compete with.
