The birds have received a well earned rest day today. They have been trained for 7 of the last 9 days with one of those free days taken up with the race from Swindon. So apart from last Friday they have been worked and worked hard every day.
I let them out this afternoon and they enjoyed a bath and lounging around the garden. It was nice to see as they have earned it. They were out for about an hour in total. I fed them on return to the loft and they will have one last training toss tomorrow evening - probably from 27 miles - in preparation for Saturdays race.
At the moment the race is due to be on Saturday but it would not surprise me to see the race put back to Sunday as the weather appears to be somewhat better. But which ever day it is, Rasbull Rockets will be fully prepared and waiting!
