    When you get the bird you can keep the hood on and open the braces and the back of the hood to let a bit of light in and have a food on your glove and let it eat with the hood on to to accept it.

    Well every man dream the Gos was 1lb 11oz this morning and finally eat of the glove so let's hope this is a start of him.

    Good luck with him keep us posted on his progress. The brancher is something that I fancy doing in the future. There is a bloke in Ireland that flies a male that he reared from a brancher he does very well with him. He's apparently a very well mannered hawk. Keep me posted![/quot This is the first time I've went branch as I'm used to pr birds .as these bird are meant to be more steady bird and can act like a imp birds without the noise part. This is true Sean although I do know of one that turned out very noisy and unbearable. But that was due to the owner dithering about and not getting it out killing soon enough. I would get it killing as soon as its hard penned. This will be an interesting thread on its progress, looking fwd to it! Yes mate you could be right on that as I've said its my first branch as I can't really answer it if it will be noisy as lll wait only know myself when I start him .

    A 'brancher' is quite literally the time a hawk is likely to venture out of the nest onto the branchers.......Maybe 5-6 weeks roughly for a goshawk. Traditionally we wait longer to pick up a parent reared Goshawk, 8-10 weeks, which is after hard penning (all the blood leaving the new feathers), unless of course the bird is to be imprinted. ....but it's not set in stone & some have experimented with the 'brancher' stage, a bit too early to start training straight away, but normally out of the imprint stage, a few weeks of socialising before the serious stuff start..... That's the best I can do mate[/quot That's it's all in one mate but lll not start training him until a few more weeks as he's tail isn't fully grown yet or either wings .as these done right act like a fully imprint bird with the noise .
