quick falconry video

I filmed Chalkie doing a little bit of practice in the aviary, it's not a good video, but I thought I'd share... by the way it's a tiny bit graphic due to the food he eats!

Thank you! He's lovely.

Watching him fly properly brings a tear to my eye some times. I can get him to get so high while he I stand beneath him and then I call him down and he drops in at a huge speed. THAT is awesome. And then when we're in the woods, seeing him come from a tree and flying literally inches from the floor towards me is also very much so amazing!

believe me

for years I could never touch the food, I absolutely adore little fluffy chickens, but sadly it's life and it's totally natural, I made the choice and so I have to deal with it. For so long I wouldn't touch them but now I'm used to having to cut them up. Don't worry they're very much so dead when they come to me and they're frozen from when they're hatched... it sounds horrible but sadly nobody needs cockerels

I used to daydream about having a hawk or an eagle fly onto my arm from far away when I was in school, gosh it mustbe such a feeling of euphoria when they swoop down like that.,

i understand it must be hard at first but you got think theres much worse ways to go then being frozen like factory farming, being boiled, or Being eaten alive which happens alot in the wild. i dont eat meat but I hafta give it to my cats in there food and Im sure the meat in there was treated worse then the chicks. Sadly I guess this is life but yeah I bet it'd be hard

exactly my point, anybody who eats meat too should see no problem in my opinion, it's the same thing either way, if people eat chicken it's the same. I don't eat much meat, I eat quorn but I will eat it if I'm at a meal or something

Hey,
I eat meat - no problem. I wouldn't have trouble with frozen baby cockrels. However, I would be scared of the beak and the talons.

I'm happy for you, though, Daisy, because you seem to really enjoy the birds of prey.


Thanks Shivani for the awesome siggy!

My arms have their fair share of bumps and bruises from talons and beaks haha! But yes they are pretty scary. My Eurasian eagle owl has feet bigger than my hands!

Thanks nanay I really do love them!
