Default Albidus Goshawk: Is it a pure one?

Could someone please tell me how to tell a pure Albidus goshawk from one that's not?

I'm hoping to pick one up next year, but need to be sure - the price for pure is quite different from impure, my budget isn't the issue, but I would like an extension as well.

I need to get my facts straight, and where else better to ask than the forum. I noted on facebook, a harry pyle group no less, a lot of albidus stuff which was of great interest to me. But I'm afraid I'm still no better off, with my question I mean.

Also have a slight interest in Daphanea Eagles - how are these specifically identified? If you can inform on any of these questions, I'd be extremely grateful.

Best Wishes

Johny

Lol, yes, I may pick up a gyr by mistake

Fear not my friend (and Stu Bailey, Jimbo too) this is a much simpler question than has ever been asked, and not a repeat. Just tell me how to tell, so as I don't get ripped off, is a lot of money to fork out for a rip off

I'm
Looking at buying Robert kenwoods book on goshawks for his phd I think, borrowed it from a friend but only skim read it, sure some
Details where in there but only from studies from other scientist and I don't think there was as much data. Probable due to location.

Whatever you do Ash, don't get ripped off. Still waiting, always will be I think - how does one prove their Albidus is 'pure'? Lot of money to be made if you know the score, if you know the angles to play.

Don't care much about money Dean. Care about wasting it though.

All the best

The truth is that there is no purer out there and maybe in 20 years the maybe .they are not like falcons they take longer to get to pure and at the min they are all breed with the same cluch in the uk they have not got that meany blood lines to mix up with that I can tall you .and on my thread they are no bigger than Finnish and no good in woods and turning when needed and the is the truth but if you have got the cash then make the breeders day and good luck mate ow and don't forget they can change colours in year 2.
