Brian, what a gracious offer.  I suspect that there would have to be a certificate of health though.  I know I am getting chicks from McMurray's and there must be a health certificate that I purchase to come through the border.  I will check it out though, thank you so much for thinking of me.  Beautiful day in this great life.  Cindi

   If I remember right all bird of prey or raptor are feather protected.  This means that if I have a feather I'm subject to criminal prosecution.  This was explained to me by a person who was licensed for raptor therapy and return to the wild.  This was after a friend of mine had a barn owl hit his windsheild in  front of my house in Georgia.  Some local folks wanted to kill it for the feathers and I got out there in time to stop them.  We covered it with a blanket and boxed it up.  Called the police they gave us the number to a judge who was able to care for the owl. 

    As far as getting hit by raptors yeah we lost a lot of chickens and friends of mine have lost many ducklings, rabbits, turkey poults and more.  Takes a lot to get permission to kill or trap one or not granted permission for anything.  Can be frustrating.

    But I have always marveled at hawks, eagles, owls and falcons.  I think they are cool!  Mindful that they are wild critters and not to be tamed, but cool!

Everyone said it couldn't be done. But he with a chuckle replied, "I won't be one to say it is so, until I give it a try."  So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin.  If he had a worry he hid it and he started to sing as he tackled that thing that couldn't be done, and he did it.  (unknown)

Thinking about it, I've lost more chix/ducklings to crows than hawks...they will swoop down, grab a duckling, carry it up about 60ft & drop it on a rock, then eat it. angry..When my daughter was about 8 she saw this & got busy making a slingshot out of sticks, rubber bands & hay twine..she was able to knock a few in flight & whacked em with other stix or laughed as they bonked into trees...kept her busy for days! Great problem solving, math, fine motor & critical thinking skills! evil That's my girl!!

Love the Birds of Prey, but there sure have gotten to be a lot of them in the last few years. Twenty years ago it was rare to see Great Horned Owl here.  Now I regularly see as many as four in the trees along my 1/2 mile long driveway.  Hawks are everywhere all year long.  Between the Birds of Prey, Bobcats, and loose dogs its just impossible to have any feathered livestock run loose.

Hey Brian, I remember dad having a pigeon which probably flew in to  powerline...As you probably know, this happens occasionally.
 Anyways, there was this bird(pigeon) see,   and it was alive after hitting a wire.......And ever time it ate, the pigeon food would fall right out of its body!!!...Same with drinking, the water would fall out!
 Dad sewed this bird closed and she lived!
 And this is a true story!

your friend,
john
