Hi Ashley after flying gyr/peres, hood size can depend on what colour gyr its been bred with, but 95s are about the norm.

keep flying high

What kind of blocks? I've seen a fair number take an 18 Tait, but it's not really a whole lot of info to go on Congrats on the new bird!

Making a guess of a flying weight of 1lb 11/12, the bird would averagely measure 49-51mm behind the eyes. Every bird is different though, best to measure then find the appropriate pattern or block!

Understand it's best to measure to get the perfect fit but has hood will need to be made then your talking a couple of weeks with no hood!! So I'm hoping to get a decent fit for now and then if needs be, get a better fitted one. Has for the gyrkin, it's a grey phase Gary wall bird. Peregrine is a Tony ebb Welsh monster! Or a colin Asquith Scottish.

Thanks guys.

If you can afford it, your best bet is to get 2 or possibly even 3 sizes so you're guaranteed a good fit. A poorly fitting hood is one of the fastest ways to making a hood shy bird.

Get a couple of female peregrine hoods, one to fit a 28 oz or so and one to fit a 30oz and you'll be covered.

And if you aren't getting a hood made from Tait blocks, these numbers mean nothing.
