widdowood cocks have 4 or 6 looses before raceing starts then no more training should do enough arond home



same when we had them on roundabout but hens got lazy later on and had 1 short training toss in mid week later on in season but if they working well then no training

In my club we cant compete with the top widowhood or roundabout flyers inland except on hard flying days ,different story though when it comes to channel and the hours on the wing get longer then natural birds have a better chance, this is why we are giving the roundabout system a go to compete for inland prizes .

my birds are fled on the round about system and to tell you the truth i wouldnt go back to any of the other systems.my team consists of 28 cocks and 28 hens the reason for the big amount is because i race in a few clubs,greets green sfc with the wolverhampton fed,super club also ocker hill club.both worcester fed,mcc,and last but not least,central counties m/week this club sending up to 900 birds.i train my birds before the first race from 15 miles.after the first race no more motorway training they are just fled around the house twice a day for 45 minutes.with round about you are not leaving a good hen in the loft being wasted Sleep sorry peeps i know im going on a bit but im a really lonely man ah Laughing Laughing Laughing
