What members basic system for feeding race hens in a widowhood system
Is it the same as cocks or a different base feed , once or twice a day feeding
Be interested in different ideas and theories I have my cocks system but plan to race hens more to give me more options now the peregrines are killing for fun this side of the country
I need more pigeons but I don’t really want more work by keeping more birds

Can't help you much on this one Neil, my experience of racing hens as OB is very limited
