The first race has finally come, we sent 48 birds to Salisbury , 96 miles to us.. The wind is not in our favour and is the worst wind we can have but returns are the order of the day . These birds are getting prepared for bigger races in 2 weeks time. Fingers crossed for a good race with good returns.
We have been very busy weaning the young birds and preparing the older birds for the coming races. Racing starts in 2 weeks and we are a little behind but hope to send a few to the first race on the 19th of April. The weather has been awful this last week but looking forward it is going to improve tomorrow afternoon and for the coming week.
Our training is also behind with no birds being trained yet, we are not panicing though and we will be there in a few weeks. The season is long and we do not want to throw birds away for the sake of sending them early.
2014 team - we have a good team of birds here and have high expectations. fingers crossed lady luck is looking down on us in 2014.
I will post more once racing has started.
