  1. I use them in my hens with boards under the perch area set at a angle and hinged to the back so not sh** really goes on the grids
  2. I use about 15 percent pellets during the moult and then when babies are in the nest I put a Handful in each box with fat seeds of a morning so they get easy to digest first feed .This year from December to pairing I plan to feed 5 parts barley 1 part layers instead of just barley and my racers will be in that to mid March as they don’t rear .

    Anyone feed Beyers corn ? i normally feed Bamfords or VL I thought I would try Beyers and I find my birds do not clear the maize the same normally they clear maize and would leave other grains but I noticed it’s not the case with Beyers Anyone else notice this ?
  4. Do any members add vitamin C to the water at all before or after flight ? would it be any use for short races or only suitable after a long hard fly
  5. interesting older topic this Had the cocks out 6 times and first time today they flew with speed as a team , pleased with them so far I have them on tight rations at the moment they are a little under weight which is ok for me just in a ounce a day since mid December unless it’s a minus tempt then I give a little more good to see how others are going

    Natural hens

    In two minds what to do I have my 20 cocks I keep looking at the hens although some very good fanciers have told me for sprinting not to race there hens As I seem to get by with the Vicks but I do have 7 extra hens plus I have a 4 retired cocks that I haven’t bred out of but kind of put them to one side plus two June bred cocks that I could add to the 4 . i am weighing up if it’s worth it or not

    Natural hens

    How interesting pretty much exactly what I was heading towards in my head I have some lovely yearling hens and I like the idea of celibacy but thinking as we all do more and more and I started thinking of a yearling hens on there first nest ever potential for 6-7 weeks of her experiencing the first pairing to eggs to young plus they would be super fit by the time they are paired by flying unpaired during March i am in two minds to be honest

    Natural hens

    Anyone race hens on natural for sprinting at all if so do you train a fair bit or flag at a certain times I have a idea of just pairing 6 hens so they sit eggs from early April rearing youngsters in May so it’s the first nest of the year etc
