Rhiannon has been one of our principle breeding hens of the last few seasons…she is a really beautiful hen with a quite incredible performance pedigree. Her daughter Ivana is becoming a very worthy successor.
Yesterday was our fifth young bird race and first natour race of the season.
The young bird race was shambolic to say the least with a number of our birds and many other of our clubmates birds coming home with ‘fat eye’ virus symptoms. It was a miracle how we had such good returns, and lets hope things improve during the week. It is some knowledgeable fanciers belief that when you can see the ‘fat eye’ symptoms the virus has actually passed and they are over it. The next few days will prove that one way or the other.
