Read a post from Mark little while ago. Said he never seperated race birds. I tried that many years ago. But they laid like chickens. Would be easier not to seperate next year. One less loft to look after.

Do you bother to keep them from laying with those wooden eggs knackered? I was wondering if I should use them on my white birds to keep from laying?

No "wood eggs" I'm a cheap skate Rom SmileSmile just let them sit as such & when they get bored they just leave them etc. Cycle to cycle will be 30/35 days here & for me much better than throwing them out type of thing all the time. Have the odd cock sneak in at times between the sections, but he quickly get a good foot up the a**e so to speak Wink Wink. cheers

ive not separated some times, and eventually they stop laying, just turn the bowls over and close the nest boxes..........and lighten the food.
