A quick update; no drama from the eagle today stepped up to the glove and on to scales.

Tried a small amount of hooding today lots of ducking and diving but made progress dont want to over do it.

Weight today 12 lb 1 1/2 ozs.

Still got feathers growing so no drastic weight reduction just yet. But may start soon.
