Default Raven Update

Just a quick post to let you know how training is going...really good hes now flying 100 yards to flying arena...funny thing is that he is very selective in who he likes...he will only fly to me in the arena and is still very vocal...i never realised how much food they put away...he is eating about 7 chicks a day plus fruit supplements and things like sweetcorn pasta and cheese...he loves grapes....i thought he had worms but the mute sample came back clear as a bell...has anyone else found they eat a lot of food...im putting it down to the fact he is still growing only being 60 days old...i had a situation the other day when he ate a 10p piece ...i gave him loads opf casting and he brought it up the next morning...could have been disasterous..anyway here are some pics

He is looking great!!! The raven I had ate lots, too. I fed him lots of fruits and veggies. And peanuts...he loved to play with them and take the shell off. They are very particular who they like. And they can really hurt a person if they don't like them. I miss the raven I worked with...he was so fun!!!
