How are you all getting on in preparation for the coming season? Just weaned my youngsters and will split the old birds (Sunday) which are on pot eggs.That gives me two weeks to the first race on the 17th April.Good luck to all for the coming season.

My birds are feeding first round which will all be weaned across around a weeks time. Have a few latebreds kicking around which will receive some training just shortly, other than that they'll do as they please.
Felt like chucking it during the winter after losing 4 hens to hawk but looking at the team now I'm really looking forward to season.
Regardless of when racing starts I'll be ready.

Natural old birds now sitting first round and will be fresh for later races. Trying something new to me racing celibate cocks and hens, will start training after Easter cold snap.
