Our decision to skip most young bird racing this season due to the heat and sickness in young birds and just concentrate on the ‘Natour’ (Natural) Any Age races that are much later in the season is probably the right thing to do. The first Natour race took place from Niergnies last Saturday with an entry of 13,346 birds and the Young Bird race from Fontenay had 7,099 birds on the same day , demonstrates this is the way to go for most fanciers as the Young Bird Seasons get more difficult every year.
Seventeen of our twenty prize winners were young birds including our first three birds timed and three were older birds.
