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

For me it isn't a watered down, but for those feeding heavy protein mixtures it would. Best way to describe it would be similar to Vanronaeys Maurice Cassaert depurative but with added fats
