Feeding Young Birds

Recommended Posts

I have been feeding "GEM" YB Corn, & I was wondering if members keep the young birds on the Young Bird corn all the young bird season, with may be a mix of barley as & when??.

If you do turn to another mix, what do you feed? Our YB race's start at 105 mile then go up to 200 mile for our last YB race, I give them a few peanuts a week before their 4 last race's.

They are all federation inland races. Apart for the 2 BICC Guernsey, & Falaise Races.

Fred it depends what you want from young birds, I expect and want my birds to win from day 1, so my young bird feed would be considered watered down, and it's very rare my young birds will see a pea unless it's on a sunday to recover the muscle lost from the race
