Chalkie is quite small for a Harris', not too bad for a male. He is a Peruvian though so they are generally smaller. He's really gentle. On my YouTube channel you can see a video of his scritches. He puts his head down for you to do it
My arms aren't too bad for scratches there! They look okay considering how much I get hurt. I love these bandages that stop you from scarring. I use them all the time haha!
I fell in love with Chalkie. When I went to pick up my Harris hawk I actually was getting a beautiful, well mannered female who was already taking fur n feather. I saw Chalkie, immature plumage, twisted legs and full of curiosity. He had way more personality. So even though he wasn't for sale I took him anyways. Best £250 I ever spent! He's wonderful. After 5 days he was free flying. They told me they couldn't train him.
