I do not need them to be vet checked. I have heard that the post office was going to require a vet check at one time but I do not think that ever happened. I have sent birds out this year and the post office did not require it. I did have to make an appointment to ship birds. My post office also only ships birds on Mondays. It might make sense to check with your local post office.

From my understanding Flapdoodle will vaccine all birds as they come into his loft, Just to be sure.

I have about a dozen hatching out this weekend. Just need to decide which ones will go to the race. A few are from proven pairs and the rest from new pairings. I will have to look the distances over again and look at the terrain.

It seems like some of you are going to try & ship birds early. Think we should read the Rules. No birds before April 1, 2010 to be sent to this race...... Happy

Hi Everyone, I Just sent an email to all those registered for the race with a link to a online form. It basically asks how many birds you plan to send and what date you think they will be shipped. If you did not get the email please send me a quick note to my address below. I have 11 babies that hatched three days apart. They will be ready the second week in April. I am still not sure which birds I plan to enter, Hope everyone else is doing well.

The weather man does not predict more then ten days out

It can be pretty tuff. Last fall in yb we had really hot temps and some races had gusty wind going over the pass. Then again it could be great and a speed bird would be better. That is part of the challenge... I know I am no help.

Over the pass as in a mountain cool, the only thing my birds have to fly over is the corn. We have a few hills but you can stand on top of the truck and see over them.
