Hi Dave,

Good to hear that all is well. I look forward to more updates as the season takes off. Preferably with lots and lots of pictures!

All the best,

Jemimas eagles nice!


Zeus broke a primary recently-his only damaged feather, and he moulted it two days later-thankfully!!


Same as last year, Zeus either feeds out front on his mat, feeds on the glove.However now and again he has been having a frozen rat left in his mews- a tip from someone else, instead of a tiring, but to help take up some of his time and wear his beak. He's been taken out and hooded and returned and the rat placed so he cannot see it for a minute as I walk away and leave him. It's worked well so far and with no bad manners developing. See what he's like on weight I guess!
So far with other birds after being extra careful with feeding regime in the first year I have been able to relax it in subsequent years with no effect-see what happens!

Average weight is 9lb 12oz, and he is moulting like mad, I could definitely stuff a pillow with his cast offs!!

Yes all going well I will be there for the event with a few friends!

Zeus looks great and good idea with the frozen rat

What about putting it into some sort of timed dispenser so it drops about 15mins after you leave the mews

I was thinking of some contraption like this for my new harris
