    Hi David yes I did now that to be fair I was just looking at how other people would do it with a bird that they new nothing about and was wondering if any body would worry about diet and and stuff like that .and yes I no I spent a great deal ov money already on all sorts and telemetry is on the way lol .I have bean doing some digging in to the back ground of the bird and found out that she is name beauty and was born in Derbyshire in 2003 and that the guy lied about its age and how long it has bean free lofted for I have bean working with her none stop and she is doing OK but not what I would call great she is great in doors and will fly to the fist but she has some bad traits [BANNED TEXT] out side on the bow she doesn't want to no at all she bates a lot [BANNED TEXT] approached I have got her wait down to 2lb 10.5 so she has lost 5 Oz but she is still not responding to well out side I think it may be the fact that she has bean locked away for so long and I'm not sure if her age is something to do with the fact that it has imprinted in her head any thoughts would be greatly appreciated regards ian

  10. My First Hawk...

    Hi buddy thanks you for the advice that is what I have done so far and she is getting better by the day and I agree to finding her home with someone that no.s about birds but I haven't done this likely I have a mentor that is a massive help and I have been round birds for some 2 years or so and have read many books so I am not a complete novice and I have a good home for her if this doesn't work and I am the boss so to speak [BANNED TEXT] it comes to the bird I have no fear of her at all .but main problem is food I don't want to drop her wait to quickly I have no idea what she was fed before and just wanted to no what everyone else would do in my situation thanks for the reply ian
