I am just figuring out...

    Hi everyone, I've just got 4 chicks feathering up nicely (from different hens obviously) but they are all brown! Both fathers of each nest are brown but both mothers are black and white, I was wondering if the time of the year had an effect on the colour of the chicks, a bit like temprature and...

    Ok so I understand how racing kinda works. My question is when birds are released for a race do they fly back to their own loft or to a designated central location loft? If they fly back to there own loft arent some loft's closer than other from the release point? How does this work?
