It can puncture the hawk's crop and tangle not allowing the casting pellet to be rejected.

Remove fat (yellowish) and rump (pygostyle) as it is not pure flesh and would not benefit the hawk's flying weight.

Again, this is important if bones being smashed : Humerus being stiff, splinters and fragments being dangerously sharp (for the crop), better just disgard the entire bone.

Scapula bone shape is not to trust inside a falcon's crop either.

The worst is the connection humerus/scapula/coracoid as fork/hook. It has killed many birds that could not cast it back.

All this is not essential if the hawk is eating only flesh from the filet only, but sharp hawks in hunting weight tend to swallow anything offered to them.

Hope that helps to answer on how to prepare pigeon for Hawks.

Master Qassim you know you're stuff, but your obsession with Dildo's scares the **** out of me!

Again, preventive medics for tricho and cocci and worms will clear the pathologies, and some microbes make bird have immune system.

If the bird is sterile, it will never build immune system and resistance.

If it can't be stronger, it just dies.

Good thing about wild caught is they are often infected, and with preventive treatment for common pathologies to be cut down before cutting the weight down, the birds eat anything from sparrow, starlings, doves and pigeons, to any kill it catches...

One of the positive aspect of natural (tough) selection...
