Day one

Caught at 1:00pm in Hadley, MA on a b.c. with 2 pigeons
1135g with a small crop.  Keel is round but not extremely so.  2 good large mutes in box and several small ones in box before manning.  Did well on glove, regaining on her own 2 out of 3 times and sitting with wings high and tight by the end of session. Would tear a bechin off and if she bit the quail well would allow her head to be pulled down to the glove but would not put it down on her own.  She ate every bite she tore off, flinging none of them.  Took to the hood very well although the fit is awful.  I need to make another.
