Gyr/Prairie out

Recommended Posts

Got Max out of the moulting chamber today at 5pm,it was easier than i thought it would be ,netted,jessed back up and out in 10 minutes.He spent the next 10 minutes screaming and hanging upside down,but with my reveloutionary manning tecniques (i let him bite and foot me till he is as fed up as me)he was feeding on the fist by 8pm,his food ration had been reduced for two days prior.He is looking stunning now he has had a good moult and has all his own tail and primaries.

He is third hand mate,i think it was Armthorpe,he flys at 1.6 to 1.6 1/2.He will tell you he is to weak to fly at that and just not put effort in initially but put his weight up and he dots out and is off!

hi graham, she is a crow falcon coming up to her fourth season, her hunting weight is 1lb 11oz he has flew pere/sakers and gyr/sakers which were good birds but he really likes these prairie hybreads he says ther full of p!!s and vinager and thats what he likes about them some people dont like them for that reason but he recons it brings a little bit more in to the field if you understand what i mean kev.

very nice mate he looks well settled with the dogs good luck for the season kev.

It took two seasons for him to get solid with the dogs he really didnt like them at all at first. Then i lost him for 2 1/2 years, this will be his third season since he was recovered.

I took him out of the mew yesterday afternoon to get him sized for a new hood at a mates house, he picked up good as gold despite being really fat. I put him back in the mew as he still has 2 primaries coming down but another two weeks and we will be getting started.

 

all the best Dirtwinger
