RK, It has been an absolute pleasure dealing with you. My second purchase should serve as notice to future customers. The second batch are even better than the first. The service was quick, and the birds look great. I am sure these will spin and bring as much joey as the first batch. Thank you. V/R, Angel L. Acosta, FL
Hey guy a buddy of mine like my birds so much he’s getting a few squeakers from you, I still have 8 of the 10squeakers I purchased from you back in August of 2008. Lost 1 to a copper and one never came back in on the first release. I’ve built a nice family around that black grizzle. Everything I got from you is blazing at 30 to40 ft with the exception of the Dun check she’s rolling but not very frequent and doesn’t have the speed nor the depth the other seven does. Like I had told you before when I last spoke to you I’d really like band numbers and colors of the parents of these 7 birds I still have I’m stocking 5 of them and using them as breeders. I’d like to have the information for my pedigrees. I’ll get you band numbers and hopefully you can give me the information to better format my program. By the way my buddy who’s getting the 6 squeakers from you is Jeff C. Roosevelt Stafford
Blue check bronze Hen -08#861 30 feet fastest hen thus far. Black Grizzle Cock-08-#853 30 feet fastest cock= Foundation cock of my orange family. Bronze Grizzle mixed wing Hen -08#854 20 to 25 feet my worker in the kit frequent and fast. Red check W/F cock -08#809 30 to 40 feet nice but not as fast or frequent as the others Blue bar beard W/F Hen -08#836 20 feet nice ball foundation hen of my Yellow family crosses on Ruby Red check cock 40 feet. Blue check bronze Hen-08#843 20 feet balls up nice really good hen I haven’t bred off her as of yet. Red bar W/F cock -08#849 came in late was just flipping until maybe 6 months ago now going 15 to 20 feet have not bred him yet either. Duns check W/F Hen-08#857. This is the weakest bird of the eight she’s not very frequent maybe 10 feet going to fly her out again this year maybe she’s late. If she doesn’t up her game I may be getting rid of her will I start to downsize my stock. If you can give me feed back on these birds’ parents, colors/ band numbers as well as what line they came off. it would help me in my selections to insure the proper balancing moving forward with my breeding program to produce champion Birmingham rollers. PS I have no problem being added to your reference page. People in California are asking about these RK pairs. Right now I’m not ready to share until I win a few flies. LOL Peace be with you Bro and get back with me soon. The more information I get on my birds the more detail I can be with my pedigrees!
WOW INTERESTING!! 809 AND 849 ARE FULL BROTHERS. That’s good to know because 809 is considered my2nd best RK cock but 849 is started to come in deep when I last flew him first week of the year. He started looking good to the point I said let me stop flying him for now don’t want to loose him to BOP. Now that I know he’s full brother to #809. I will stock him and use him as a breeder as well. I would love pic of the parents as well as band numbers if possible. I have 5 young late Aug hatches off of the best hen Blue check bronze#861and red check#809 cock three rounds Gave me 3 recessive red W/F 1 blue check bronze with red bars and 1singe hatch red check self. Hope they aren’t to deep have yet to really fly them much. Might just breed of them they haven’t flown much and are the first round is 5 months already second round is 4 months and the last one is only 12 weeks I should be able to start training that one with no problems. The other 4 I may gave waited too long to get them kitting? What you think?
WOW IT’S AMAZING YOU SAID THIS!!!.I paired her up with red check #809 last year for three rounds each time the squabs died. I broke them up and just flew her in the kit she was breaking really good and blurring up dropping about 20ft. I flew her with a utility kit this past January and it didn’t even seem like the same birds I mean her velocity seem to increase at least by 50% needless to say she’s stocked now. I may work her in the breeding program now this year! I’m really excited now to be getting some history on the birds. I always knew they were great birds from what I’ve witnessed in the air but knowing the background just add more depth when choosing a mate for the birds as well as keeping the family balanced.
Wow MIND BOGGLING !!!!!! #861 SPINS SO FAST HER FEATHERS ARE ALWAYS PARTED ON HER BREASTWHEN SHE LANDS. SHE ACTUALLY SNAPPED A TAIL FEATHER I MEAN SNAPPED IT IN HALF WHERE IT WAS JUST HANGING. I COULDN’T BELIEVE IT SHE IS DEFINITELY MY BEST HEN STOCKED HER LAST YEAR GOT 5 YOUNG OFF HER AND #809 HOPE THEY AREN’T TOO DEEP
(PICTURE BELOW) (HE CARRIES GRIZZLE YOU CAN SEE IT WHEN YOU PULL HIS WING OUT) HE ABSOLUTYSMOKED FOR 50 TO 60 FT. THE GRANDFATHER WAS A 19 YEAR OLD COCK THAT CAME FROM AN OLDTIMER NAMED JOE JOHN GOTT,IN MO. WHO BOUGHT 3 PAIR FROM JACKANETT, EARLY WHEN HE WAS STILLSELLING SOME GOOD ONES, HE BREAD OUT OF THEM A COUPLE OF YEARS, AND CULLED 3 AND KEPT 1COCK AND 2 HENS, ALL THE BIRDS FOR 20 SOME YEARS ALL CAME FROM THOSE 3 BIRDS, THE GRANDFATHER I CALLED THE OLD SILVER COCK, (LAVENDER SELF) FLEW IN JOHNS KIT FOR 9 YEARS, AND SMOKED 70 FT, AND NEVER HIT. THIS WAS THE REASON I WANTED THIS BIRD. THE HEN IS A BLUE BAR SELF,SHE DIDNT ROLL, RK FATHER TO RK 864I can’t wait for them to ask what birds am I flying so I can say something you know nothing about RK PAIRS!!!!!!!!!!. I’ll be more then glad to advertise I’ve flown your birds for at least a year and they compete with everything I’ve seen thus far
What's up buddy, long time no talk , how is your health. Just wanted to say hello . Having good luck with the birds I got from you, also meet a guy at the LA convention this Sept. J Comer. Who is doing well with them . Let me hear from you I never did get any yellows from you!!!!!!!
Lee in Wichita KS. 03/23/2011
score very high but good for young birds under a year old. Very happy with the family. Would like to add the yellows and almonds to them. I also like that blue bar baldhead on your site.
Later Lee 06/25/2011
mated with a red grizzle hen from you produced dynamite spinners. The bird was a Gray Grizzle and his band number was: NBRC - 1190 - 07. Let me know if you have anything directly related ( parent or sibling )to this bird for sale.
