45 hours and they will be basketed!
The birds have continued to be pushed these last 2 days. They have been yesterday and today. Today they went 28 miles line of flight, and recorded 1306 ypm. I am over the moon with them. Tonight I have tried a few little tricks with them to improve them still further. I was going to train them again tomorrow night, but feel they have worked hard enough for the last week. They will be loft flown tomorrow evening and then prepared for the race. I am pleased all 8 new youngsters have excelled in their training as they were totally inexperienced prior to this week. I hope they do themselves justice now in the race. To say I am excited is an understatement!
