Finally this blue hen is one of Pete’s she returned next morning from the Guernsey race last year. First race this year.

I don’t have a problem with jumping birds in at this distance.
I did worry last week that the 2 hens would have come off their eggs and been looking to lay again as they were sitting 19 days on Friday, but when I went into the loft last Friday I found an egg shell on the floor. When checking I had forgotten to throw the eggs away so all 4 had hatched LOL. So they are going feeding 6 day youngsters.
Weather looks reasonable for a Saturday lib with a light NNW wind.
They certainly look well enough Andy, hope it's a good and successful race for you bruv.
All the best.

Doing a great job with them Andy, well done.
You can never lose a homing pigeon - if it doesn't come back, all you have lost is a pigeon.
