Jim, nice article on Harold Ray. I’ve been down to his place a couple of times for field trials and once to breed a dog. I’ve never seen a recall pen on his place other then his quail flight pen. What style of Johnny House or flat model recall pens does he and Doug use? I would like to see more article on the Smith Plantation/Harold Ray or Doug Ray. Would also like to know more about the Plantations in Georgia that are open to the public. Thanks and keep up the good work. David Holmes
I would like to make a suggestion. This is something I have done and still do. Have you ever heard of rolled roofing? It’s a big shingle in a roll. I use in any thing I have with a wooden floor. It keeps the wood protected from moisture and contamination from feed, water and droppings. It will add a lot of life to the floor also. You can put sand on top of it in a Johnny house and sprinkle some stock salt on the sand to help cut down bacteria growth. I use the Stalosan F to do a better job of controlling Coccidiosis and bacteria.
When you clean out the house just remove the sand and roll the roofing up, take it out, sweep it off and reuse it several times. If it gets real nasty just put a new one in and take the dirty one home and spray it off and use the next time you clean. You can rotate the roofing form cycle to cycle.
Many people don’t know what Stalosan F is .
I think anyone that is growing quail or even has a holding pen for quail should understand what this product is and how it works. I know you have used it for years, so please give us a quick rundown on this product.
Stalosan F is a dry powder broad-spectrum disinfectant that will control a larg list Bacteria to includ E-Coli, Colstridum and Salmonell
(plus 38 more). It also controls Coccidia, Parasites and Viruses.
