Default "Sioux" Socially Imprinted Male Goshawk

hello to the forum,
i have been fortunate to breed myself a male goshawk for the 2008 season i have called him "sioux" he is a cross between a german female bred by alan rothery and a finnish male by chris brown, to day he is eleven days old, when he is hard penned i will hopefully be having some sport with him hunting corvids and a few rabbits and pheasants.
he is a full brother to the hawk i flew last season frankie
http://www.falconryforum.co.uk/showthread.php?t=31256
if he shapes up like him i will be more than happy.
just a few pics to start with to give you an idea of his development.
keith

That's a nice bit of film where you're feeding the chicks!! I found myself concentrating hard and counting..to make sure they were both getting the same amount!!!

Hey.

Congrats on the gos. I flew a huge female African Gos (500g) many years ago and her name was also Sioux. What a bird, she killed many Indian Myna birds and Guinea fowl to boot. Hope you have loads of fun with him.

sioux is around 16 days old today , my neighbour called around today he was having problems with crows flying into his milking parlour and ******** all over the milking machine and generally making a mess, i said i would pop over with the rifle and shoot a few this afternoon to deter them.
i hung a few up around the shed and brought three home fresh minced them and fed to the young eyass for his afternoon feed, he really is coming on leaps and bounds now getting stronger every day.
