    good luck youll be busy that roundabout seems to much trouble to me but depends how much time you can spend with your birds, im putting all my ybs on darkness, ive been reading up on natural flying if you can suss natural thats a hard 1 to beat so ive been told and not just long distance either.

    when u thinking of darkening your ybs and what times you opening or closing it off? i was thinking let mine see the natural sunrise but then others let them see it get dark so they can perch and im going with that system me thinks

    sounds good how long you leaving them on darkness i was told they only need 6 weeks but others say leave longer, also what i meant was if you fly widowhood you only need to spend 2 hrs roughly aday but like you said on roundabout you have to fly both thats 4 hrs aday,let us no how well your hens and cocks perform this year compared to previous years, i can see why your thinking of trying it as most say the hens do great from 70 to 700miles, as you no its my first year racing but 2011 i need a system to fly but i only want to fly a small team no more than 6 pairs
