Hi Guys,
Looking forward to my first old bird season racing cocks and hens on roundabout.
Just wondering how much you feed cocks and hens morning and night?

Hi josh, you will probably get a few different answers here but mine get 1/2 ounce in a morning and 3/4 ounce each in the evening and as much as they want when returning from the race. Best of luck with your first season.

I’ve never been one for measuring amounts, but when I used to race widowhood I used to feed light early week and building up to heavier at the end of the week.
Now I race natural and on open loft and are concentrating on the distance there is food in the loft all the time.

I too race natural and aim to feed around 1 to 1.5 ounces per bird per day of their mix but they do have Beans and Layers pellets add lib. For the short to middle distance races I would cut out the beans and pellets until the distance increases.
All the best for you're first season Josh, hope it's a good one for you.
