    that's good, you need birds that haven't been flown yet so they can imprint on your place as home, i live in the country so once mine were established i let mine out all the time, they fly around and land on my roof, you have to let them find their own way out so they will know how to get back in, trap training is the best, and always make a sound when feeding them, i shake a can full of grit, oh and make sure you always fly them hungry so it's easy to call them backin if need be

He lives just outside of New York City...hmmmm I still have to build a loft in the chicken coops..he said have the breeding prs in one and the babies in one..He tried to tell me I needed 10 prs...I was like no...I want to go slow...[​IMG]
