Keep your hens in good nick,don't let them pair up.feed 50% barlay no heavy mix,feed them a racing mix on basketing day.so they are not looking for food when you put with the cocks.If they leave the barley your feeding too much.

Any feed that they will eat. Not being personal at all … but I must ask 'What would be the difference'?


You need only control their' feeds according to how - if and when - they would be racing. Then exactly as any race week.

Yes keeping them 90% fit and ready to bring up to 100 fit if possible.

Remember 'Only' fit birds can be trained to get fitter. (they should be allowed to become fit via themselves... you, nor anyone else can make a not fit bird fit). That takes time and patience till they become 'loft Fit'! Too many, far too many pigeons are trained when not even mentally fit. Big cause of losses.
