Default Spike Hardcore Hawkers Male Gos

Since getting my imprint Ken myself and Steve(Hardcore Hawker) have been chatting about the Goses and the comming season. Some people were begining to think Steve Gos was just an imaginary object, however, I have some pics of him here. What a Cracker I am sure Steve can answer all the questions

Thanks for the pics Joe! Spike is a Gary Almeida male from a Harry Gilbert female called Hope, he is 57 days old and ready to take to the field his weight is currently stable at around the 2lb mark so quite a nice size also. And before i get the inevitable advice on the worn astro-turf and the perch needing a lick of hammerite Its on the list

He's a cracker steve, I especailly like the 3rd picture. Can't wait to see him in action on those phessy's, i'm sure you'll do him proud. I think this season and 1 more with the harris then i'm gonna be getting a male gos.

He looks an absolute cracker Steve, very nice indeed - I particularly like that forth photo, where he's laying down, still looks formidable at rest.

All the best with him,

Johny

Ps: Thanks for putting the pictures up Joe!

Thanks for the comments, the next stage is the bit i am not looking forward to, new felt hunger can definately change things for a while, but with daily flying and hunting opportuny, things should iron out for future seasons which is the reason for imprinting in the first place. i am looking forward to seeing his wings beat in anger and what type of hunter he becomes.
