methinks too many go the imprint route with gos and mess it up lol always loads of imprints for sale, personaly id go for parent reared, deffo gonna try a male this season coming, see just how hard they are or are not as the case maybe
i can see the logic of imprinting and have seen a very good male imprint fly very well indeed. however i made such a mess of my first 2 sparrowhawks through imprinting (aggresive screamers) it put me off imprints for life, mind very little was known of imprinting back then
the way most imprints go nowadays shows things ain't improved much despite the books what wporks for one rarely works for another lol, I like me birds to know who and what exactly they are, I like the respect and boundaries I have with my parent rears, they allow me to work with them even forgive a little now and then and too me thats really summat, imprinting just takes that away for me , although Im sure its a very rewarding expirience and yeah its something I would try maybe do it for a pal then when it screams pass it back too him lol
