    How far to train youngbirds?

    Post by Bob on Tue Jul 06, 2010 10:31 pm

    I have been taking my youngbirds traing for about a month. Started at 5 miles then 10,then 20,then 30 then 55 which is about the place of the first youngbird race. All birds beating me home. I then took them 80 miles to the second race point but when I got home none were back. it was 3hrs before the first came home and the rest that came back one at a time. I got 14 of the 31 birds I sent back. Should I send the birds ferther or rest them for the first race in 10 days?
