Got question is can old birds go along with young birds when out flying round the loft? But then they both live in different lofts will they know which Ines to go into. I have so far always fly them separately.

Thanks

Matthew a tip when your old birds moulting put a cardboard box in a corner with the lid cut off and most of the feathers will end up inside the box and put some hemp seeds in there feed once or twice a week it helps in the most all the best in rest of the young bird racing
