Weights pretty steady at the minute.After advice I feed DOC ,mice and mealworms. it's thighs are nice and full as is it's keel .It flies at 175-180g to the glove or to the lure and out in the fields it will follow me to the flying field.

It was a parent reared bird and a ****** to man but once I'd got that right everything else has been reasonably straightforward. The only problem I've had is with a little cere damage but thats down to my bad aviary building. I've Put the green plant mesh around the aviary to stop it flying ito the wire now so that shouldn't be any further problem until I rebuild in the spring.
