Default "Ros" the Gos. 2005 Imprint Goshawk

I picked up my 2005 eyass Goshawk yesterday. He is a pure Finnish Bird and this morning weighs 1lb 4oz empty, He is 15 days old.
It turned out to be a five hour drive to collect him and it was an interesting trip! My slap happy driving style nearly made it game over for PCHay and myself a grand total of three times but at least the long journey home passed without incident.
He woke me at six this morning pecking at his food dish because he had eaten the two chicks I had left him with overnight so I butchered a quail and he wolfed half of it in one sitting.
He was weighed and prior to feeding him we did a little hood work. The hood was left in his tank all night<Btw>.
I popped the hood on him for about a second (Braces struck) and removed it. I repeated this three times then the fourth time I let it sit on his head (struck) and quickly placed his food in the tank, Then I removed the hood and dropped it beside him.
When he was full I picked up the hood and offered it to him, he nibbled it then put his head inside!
Good lad!
Will post pictures as soon as I get new photo editor software.
