Default My 50/50 male Gos

Here are a few pics of my Gos.
Last year, which was his first year, he hit a fence early on which nearly killed him, so he didn't get to fly much.
He has had a bit of a slow start this year but he is now getting there.

A couple more.

Thanks. That's why I like flying a Goshawk.
Get them going well and they will take on just about anything we can fly here in the UK.
Hopefully I will get a crack at some pheasant soon.

Nice Gos David, I take it he is parent reared. I see he has only had about half a moult, do you think this was due to his injury?. Anyway I bet you're glad to see him and going again. Hope you have a good and safe season , all the best Chris

Thanks Chris.
Yes he is parent reared.
His moult was a strange one. He moulted all but 2 pairs of primary feathers but only 2 pairs of secondary were dropped. He was slow to start moulting and he seemed to just stop at the end of August. He dropped one deck feather, but the second one only dropped about 7 weeks later.
I kept him in an open fronted mews where he was free lofted and kept up contact with him just to make sure he had no issues and as he was so calm natured I didn't think it would have been a problem.
Next spring he will go into a seclusion aviary and stay there until fully moulted...Ha ha
