yes true........also often wondered if ybs weaned onto darkness are any different to ybs put on when the clock alter, will they be more moulted, or will they hold the moult longer.......or will they perform better ?

always like mine to have a week before going on the dark but I wont be darkening again to chase yb prizes but that's just my opinion some guys love yb racing I am happy for them to be fed well and gain experience if a win comes along that's a bonus ...its the consistent ybs you want not the 1 win wonders Laughing
