David. Assume you live in town? Getting them out early may be advantageous. Not a problem here out in the country. Sometimes over two months old some years before I let them out. Usually works well. In fact first nice day my December hatched babies will go out. 12 of them plus some a little later.
Possum around today. Few dead on the highway also. Plus coons and a skunk. Traps baited with sardines and ready.
April some times has snow. Few years back first race was cancelled, ist weekend of May due to snow. However does not happen often.
Old birds 9 weekends of 2 races. Young birds the same. Month off in between is the current schedule.
