Yes clipper an outside aviary,silver hen to a normal cock and she's down on her second clutch of 4 eggs.The cocks still topping up the youngsters but i've seen them feeding themselves on a few different things now so there away really,there my stepson's birds and they were given to him to get him started and interested in the birds and with them going great guns it's working and he's learning by the best way possible and thats by just sitting and watching it happen in front of him.

i would suggest putting some panels of glass up around your aviary to slow the hawk down but thats illegal.

It's not illegal if it's put up to prevent drafts rather than harm a bop,same as a bright yellow canary in a cage with a fish tank placed over the top to protect it from drafts,all legal mate :thumbs: .If a spar is stupid enough to fly into it then so be it but it ain't illegal,it's only illegal if you deliberatly set out to capture or harm a bop,prevention like veg bird mesh and fishing line strung up is fine.
