Yes i've flown 2 parent reared Goses, there not for me !, if i won the lottery, and had all the time in the world, perhaps ! , i like the imprints, i like it when you lose them, that they come back looking and calling, to find you !, and why not !, you've been there life as well !, they look at you as there parent.
have u flown PR gosses ?
Allways keep that in mind.
If a parent bird in the wild, fail to bring a kill to that bird, if that bird was hungry, it who attact the parent and scream at it for food, watch young Buzzards with there parents., they do it all the time.
If your thinking of doing an imprint, you must be able to think on your feet, ideally solve problems before they happen or not ideally as they happen, or worse still don't solve the problems at all, then you've got a problem on your hands.
As i said before, read the book again and again, it's not rocket science, doing an imprint is totally different to a parent reared, don't try and mix the 2 practices, it just won't work !
