    They got hit pretty hard with Barry. Robbie assures he is on it, but wanted to send a note for prayers for him and his family. Lost a lot of birds but still standing tall and on it! Go Robbie!

    I talked to him this afternoon and he is a go getter! Right back on it and reminds me of the Duracell Bunny! Haha
    I just recently met him and wow what a guy is all I can say!

    I texted mr Robby this morning after i read this last night and here is what hes sending out

    Direct quote

    "Losses were minor for us this time - only loss around 2,800 younger birds between 2 days old and 4 1/2 weeks old ( some were young bob whites in flight pens outside ) & loss 3 fully loaded GQF incubators that were hatching at time of storm - breaker tripped and chicks piled up in hatching trays and all three were a total loss - egg production drops during a tropical storm or hurricane due to the barometric pressure dropping - production went from around 7000 eggs a day to first day of the storm 182 eggs second day 214 eggs - birds are up back to about half production as of today Wednesday morning- historically they are back full force 7 to 10 days after a storm passes - thank God it was not as bad as they were expecting - I should recover fairly quick this time and very happy about that - thanks for your thoughts and prayers for the people of South Louisiana"

    More from Mr Robby

    "This one will be a quick recovery - I am the most disappointed in the fact that I lost a lot of Quail I was raising out for a research program for LSU - I notified them yesterday morning I was going to be a bout 6 to 7 weeks behind on their complete delivery thank God it's a three-year research program and they have a lot of cushion time - sorry for the voice dictation with horrible spelling -at this point I am so busy that's all I can do."
