breaking old birds

i had 3 pairs of race birds locked up in the stock loft after moving 2 years ago . wishing to reduce "prisoners" I thought i will try & break them ! all 3 years old , will it work ? they had the last 3 or 4 flights cut on one wing. (not yet moulted out) .

walked a

so five "older birds" to join the team again. i also had a 5 year old cock , raced at the old address, could i break him too ? had him in a cage on the grass for a week . he was also "cut down" but just the 2 last remaining flights.

tried him out yesterday , and he took to my woodpile , which is nearly 6 foot tall , and near the loft. looking around for 10 minutes or so, other birds were flying around. next time i looked , no sign of him ?

he wasnt here when they were called in around 4pm , well i thought , another gone :emoticon-0127-lipssealed: . maybe too much to ask of a 5 year old.  almost back in the house ,,,, and he came back ,,, and ,,, flew around , and around for over an hour and a half .  so he done a 70 mile round trip back to the old place, then flew for and 1 & 1/2 .

just wish i had tried to break them when i moved down .
