J-Star,
this is the simple true answer. 1. you have some very good flyers who are retired.. 2. The BOP {Peregrine Falcon's} are getting so thick, they are like flocks of crows. 3. And most importantly, they have been buying and borowing great birds from the West Coast. LIke Jay Starley, Jerry Higgins, Norm Reed and Richard Junkenett, just to name a few!! I hope I have helped answer your question.. LOL KGB

Well Kenny, since you opened the can, let us hear why. I am interested to learn why. Also I heared allot from the west coast people that they have Danny Horners Jaconetts from NC. I was told that he ships them by the 100s to CA. Just telling you what I know.

J-Star,
Danny Horner got his birds from the west coast. Some of the new fancier's that want Junkenette's are getting birds from Danny, but he is just shipping birds he got from the west coast back to the west coast.. The goods still came from the West coast. Kapish? KGB

PS. Junkenette got his birds From Jerry Lynn, David Sanchez and Richard Espindoza. These guys got most of their birds from Joe Houghton and Frank Lavin to name a few. All birds went back to Pensom's loft. West Coast,, See why all good roller lead back to the west coast.. Loyd Thompson of Canada also had Pensom based birds. West coast! All Good rollers can be traced back to Pensom and the West coast in the USA, Unless your one of the guys importing from the UK these days.. KGB

Horner got his birds directly from Richard jaconette back in 1979. In 1986 he brought in a cock from Haas in Texas who also have the same family from Richard because he lost a good kit of cocks in an overfly.

Kenny stop with the none sence. The way you are posting sounds like if people don't have the KGB line, their birds are worthless. Please don't be negative about everything including the well bred "pure" BR just because they are not from your loft.

From reading the posts here, I see allot of color breeders in the west cost more than ever. If the west cost talks about purity and make an issue about it, then how in the world they keep colored, muffed and crested rollers in numbers!!! If that is the case, then color birds are better than the pure birds which against your preaching.

People lookup to you and respect you. Be a leader in a positive and productive way. Putting families or birds down just because it is your openion and it is not your family is unproductive and completely out of line. Don't you think!! That is my take Kenny.

That is poor management. Horner birds are known to be 25 to 35' pretty much bred for competition. They kit like glue and love to fly. Small birds and some are at 5 to 6oz. Some the birds come deeper. They have great control and are 'pure' never been crossed with any others for colors or anythin else. Clay Hoyle in NC has a hen from Danny that rolls 80' and back to the kit. Now adays Horner is trying to put more depth tohis birds. I like his family are very easy to manage from every corner. His famly is devoid from every breeding faults. Ellies McDonnaled family is Jacs. There are allot of fanciers who have the Jacs. It amazes me how people put other birds or family down so theirs look better.

Hey Jay,
I sure don't mean for anyone to think that. My birds are just good honest rollers nothing more..No better or worse than others. Hey, I heard Danny Horner was going to fly at the convention. Did you go and did you get to see his kit fly? I was wondering how they looked? KGB

Thanks for understanding Kenny.

He flew a young bird kit and did not do much at all. The weather was extremely hot that day. But I was disappointed with what I saw a long with the big name flyers also. Seams like they did not prep their kits to give a commendable good show except for Greg Tusdale(sp).

I thought it could've been a strategy not to show their good kits due to the collection of competitors from around the country for the conventions and not to show their birds potential to not give others an inside info of what to look for to beat them. That is only my opinion.

If I was a flyer on the list for the convention, I would have prepped my birds to be at their best performance just to leave a lasting impressions in allot of minds. That is just me.

Jay,
I agree with bad weather conditions and no time to prep the A team, even the BOP is a good reason to not open the door to your A team, but to not show their good kits due to the collection of competitors from around the country for the conventions and not to show their birds potential to not give others an inside info of what to look for to beat them.
I just do not see why anyone would do that.
Just sounds silly, Sorry.
If I knew that people from all over the country where going to step into my backyard to see my birds, I would want my birds to look there best. Even better then a big competition fly. But thats just me.....lol

Ray, I agree with you and that is what I said also in my earlier post. however, what I wrote was only my own gut feeling and my opinion only and I could be mistaken. That is how I felt at the time because you see the birds workrate and performance capabilities but you can tell that management was not there even at the top name fancier lofts which led me to come up with that conclusion.

You did say that if it was you, you would try to put up your best. You know, I just don't see how a fly day could get any better when some of the best flyers in the country are coming to see your birds. Sounds nerve racking as hell. I know I would not sleep.....lol

Jay,
It is an absurdity to even suggest that the Carolina men did not fly their best birds for the alterior motive that you suggested...Why didn't you just ask me, my friend, before making such speculations? You've been watching too much conspiracy TV, I think. (or been hangin' around KGB too long!) LOL! Anyway, I assure you that the best birds were flown. Remember that all three guys, Jay, Joe Bob and Clay all lost their A-kits to overflies and hawks or some combination thereof. Some have lost two successive A-kits.
So what was flown by those three, were young bird kits...the same ones they competed with...the best they had. You are right, the birds were in no way in competition shape. Someone with your experience in the sport should recognize that some of the guys' birds were heavy in the molt...some had been plucked and parked all summer and were just getting into shape....and one or two, including Horner and Collins, usually lock down mid September and would not risk their best birds to hawks. I put my best birds up, though it was 90 degrees and 90% humidity, as did Charlie Stack...which you didn't mention, by the way. (Charlie and I were the regional qualifiers in both the World Cup and the Fall Fly, just to refresh your memory!...but we don't really count as one of the top fliers, right?! LOL!)
YITS,
Cliff
