Overfly can be good or bad. Actually won the Smiths Falls one with a young bird few years ago. Only day bird. This weekend flying from Merrickville another 15 miles or so longer. So 325 miles for me. If the race is around the 1050 mpm mark I should do good. I do not have speed birds.

Mark. Open loft, 20 mile toss last Saturday. Tried to get them tossed again but so far weather not cooperating. Have to get a 40 miler in either tomorrow (Tuesday) or Wednesday. Sitting eggs about a week some of them. Others chasing. Just usually send cocks. So far. Feed is low protein and restricted. Hoping for a tough one. May 27th tracking. http://www.tillsonburgdrpc.com/Old%20Birds%202017/New%20May27Race.PDF  Just compare the route taken.
If the birds do not do as expected I know were the fault is. Just have to look in the mirror! Getting rather tired of looking at myself.....

No training in the usual sense today. Extremely strong winds, clouds, light rain showers. However old birds were flying (not continuously ) for over two hours. Young birds were not out yesterday and were anxious to go. Half will fly an hour or more. So just let the young birds out to join with the old ones. Leave them out few more hours. They are really booting around! May accomplish two things. Extra exercise plus some old cocks do not have hens. Hopefully they will pick some young ones. More motivation.

We had the same problem today Hal.

VERY windy and worse than that, we have great gusts at over 70 km per hour.

Young birds should have been trained as they have a race on Saturday. Old birds also, but I think will be OK to miss a days flying.

To remedy today's blues, we have just bought two Ad Schaerlaeckens stock birds. Hopefully that will be with us in a week or so. The courier costs could have nearly bought us another bird - 120 euro! Wow!

Well, got them in a few minutes ago. Young and old flew most of the day. 8.30 am to 5 pm. They really love the wind! Strong S.W forecast for Saturday. We fly from the East.
Yearling blue cock decided to go in the YB loft. Good for him!! All others trapped in to their own lofts. So I assume. Have to look. Stock birds fly out also.

Blue pied yearling from Ganus parents never mated this year. Short of hens. Now in another flying loft. Spare hen or two there I believe. So looking promising. Weather not good for tomorrow. However, training old birds is basically to get them in to condition. They know the way home. So joint flying again tomorrow, old and young.

Knackered. If one is not winning or placing in the top one must change methods. The only methods that work for me from the distance, are what I have used for years. Keep it simple and basic. I would love to win the short fast races also but do not have that type of bird or the know how to fine tune them every week. Have won them years past. More by luck than judgement. Won a 200 mile Young bird race by 20 minutes. Fast one. $500 won. 5th place I won a donated prize. Muscovy duck! Male. Spent the money quickly. The duck stayed with me for 2 years. Farm and a pond available. Canadian winters tend to get harsh. Cold outside he would peck at the screen door. Thought Muscovites liked cold? Let him in he would sit beside the small wood stove in the kitchen. Got him a mate come Spring. Quite a brood! Come Autumn and door knocking again (about a dozen by then) swapped with a Portuguese flier for some Fabrys. They cooked them all for a family reunion. My culls every year, dozens of them, I give to a guy who sells them for meat. Not since wood pigeons I shot in the UK have I eaten pigeons. Nor eaten tripe and onions, other good stuff. Sheep head from the butchers, cook and split and eat the brains. Oh well, we all adapt. Just wondered. Kangaroo testicles a delicacy in your country?
