I have split 4 pairs of the race birds and the hens are currently in their own section with the cock having the nestbox to himself. I have a further 4 pairs which are still sitting youngsters and once these have been weaned off they will be split as well. Once this has happened I will start exercising the birds daily - cocks and hens separately.
I have also been looking into joining the Welsh South Road National for the coming season. I have always fancied having a crack at this and feel this year I have the numbers to give it a go. The birds will be trained in the same direction as I train for the current South East route and then I am planning on giving 2 or 3 races on the South East route before switching a few of them to the South for the National races.
