This week we decided not to send the youngsters in the club due to the virus affecting the young birds sweeping the area. We will review the position during the week to decide if we will send next week. At the moment we have a strong team and they are our future old birds so we think it pays to be careful.
We did however send 10 hens (nine yearlings and one two year old) to Niergnies the second Natour race of the season and was happy to have all ten in the result at Provincial level against more than thirteen thousand birds.
