Nice looking bird mate. I dont bother with leg bells bud, tail bell is ample sufficient imo.

Looks a nice size bird scotlandforever :thumbs:...

I wouldn't count the weight when he had food in his crop mate but would record it the next day When/If it had cast and empty, he could well of had a good Oz of food in him or more.

weigh him on a 24hr period, no need to weigh him every so many hours...

either way he looks very nice :victory:
