Our friend Barbara McKell called the other night to check how our little “Annie” puppy is doing. We couldn’t be more happy with Annie’s progress and look forward to getting her into some birds this fall. Barbara has another beautiful litter of Brittany puppies available in Utah. The litter of puppies will be ready for their new hunting homes this week. If you are interested you can call Barbara directly at her home (435)384-2923 or on her cell phone (801)592-7602. She is willing to deliver pups anywhere in Northern Utah.
Our friends at Rooster Valley Pheasants had a litter of healthy hunting puppies this past week. Max loves to sit right down and watch the puppies nurse. The momma pup named “Polly” was very good natured about the intrusion. Their were 3 males and 6 females in the litter and should be some dang good hunting dogs. They are all mostly white with liver heads and will have very light ticking like their father Duke. It will be fun to watch these puppies grow and develop. If all goes well, we will have a litter of our own next year at this time.
This week I released the chukars into the bigger grow-out pen where they will spend the next few weeks. They are learning to use the big waterers and are starting to fly in earnest. The heaters are only used at night now and will be turned off completely by the weekend. At 6 weeks we will put blinders on them and move 400 of them to the big outdoor flight pens at Rooster Valley Pheasants.
