Default Falcons

I have a 2 year old lugger male and a 2014 female lugger been in together for 3 months . Not expecting nothing at all this year but the male as been displaying to the female ie head bobbing and chanting but the female not interested as yet . My question is how many of you have had first year young falcons laying .

I no they say 3 years to maturity but I've heard odd falconer say they've had or heard of first year young laying . I'm not bothered at all just curious . I no spars and kestrels and small falcons seem to be a little earlier . Hobbies ,Merlin's act
Thanx for replies guys I thought every one had given up on the iff lol

It is interesting to know what people have come across over the years and some people like to read these post just out of interest

Hello

Twice I've bred peregrines from a second year female. Two different pairs. Both scenarios the male was older, one three and the other four, but still virgins. Both times the second clutch produced the youngsters. First clutches were clear.

Good luck with yours.

Terry
