hi mate feed same as cocks would be feed
put them on v perches and dont let them land on the floor
have them out 2 times a day 12 hours apart or as close as possible for 45 mins each time.
make sure tehy see a cock on friday do everything like you would with a widdowood cock but using the hen,
always have a cock in the box on return from race

same as u wood do widowhood cocks but lock the hens up in each box

only come out when letting out training etc

you have to put em back in there boxes first few times but they soon get the hang of it come in and go in themselves
