Just picked her up at 20 weeks old, female red tail, bred by a friend of mine in Manchester, she's just under 3 lb so is a nice size, well pleased with her.

Silly question Wid
But how long before you can fly her .

Another silly question
What stops her just flying away from you

Hopefully she should be flying free in about 4/5 weeks time and entered on game shortly after, it's all about weight control so basically she will stay with me because she knows I have her food, in time as we bond she will start to look at me as her hunting partner and that me and the ferrits provide her with chases on rabbits. She will also be coming to work with me clearing pigeons from a couple of local factories

Its something I have thought about getting into for a while but I must be able to afford the time so as to do it properly, I have always loved birds.
A chap I just went to France fishing with has about 6 birds including goshawks and a merlin and before we left I was lucky enough to say hello to them :thumbs:
In the past he has had golden eagles and such like!
I hope I didn't bore him too much asking about them :red: :laughs:

Hopefully you will take the plunge and get yourself a bird Alan, I garante you won't regret it, this is my fifth bird and probably my last as I turned 50 this year and the birds can live over 30yrs in captivity.
