Our guy has been at tame hack almost two weeks and he is flying stronger everyday. The first week I could feel his chest filling out more and more each day. Yesterday he was getting really close to catching one of the homers. He really put on some great chases trying to surprise attack and fly down some of them. We kept the pigeons locked in today and he decided to take one of the younger free range chickens in my sister in laws yard. He was fed up this morning in the giant hood, but I guess all that flying around made him want some lunch. I think we'll have to hack him down the road to spare some of the chickens. I know my inlaws don't like locking the chickens up. They were a little upset but I was smiling inside .
