Hi thanks so much for a great resource on manning and falconry!
I'm was just wondering if you had a good formula for calculating starve, flight and fat weight and how you went through the process safely?
I was interested to understand the process more. As im new to all this I've mainly been manning the birds, taking and recording their weight but I'd like to know more about preparing for a flight and starting training.
I'll be getting a captive bred barn owl shortly and was interested in working out how to now get a good start weight and work out how to identify responsiveness and a good fat, flight and low weight for the bird safely.
I'd appreciate any book names or tips you could offer? Cheers, Tom
