do members think the more you basket ybs for training, the easier they are to catch as the birds are calmer and seem to know the drill......? I find mine are, they become easier to catch the more you catch them, or is it just I get better at catching them...? scratch Razz

We catch ours in the dark so not to stress them chasing them around the loft and we use as many baskets as possible

I have a flap in each loft. Saves carrying baskets in and out. Just back up with the van. Using plastic chicken crates mostly. Will hold 25 or so.

Easist way Hal Smile Smile In, out & on the way in a few seconds type of thing Wink Wink. The cattle folk here Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes back their units up to the loft & then use an ajustable cattle type ramp to load up the differant tiers as such Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes. For me Wink Wink I'm a catch & grab type guy & a bit like our Ray here.
