well, im starting to lose a few johnny house birds to predators and such and im down to about 20. unfortunately if these 20 go too soon i wont be able to get anymore until september and the wild bird population where im training is a little weak (definately not suitable to train) so to save some birds i bought some of those little quail harnesses and to say the least the birds dont fly too well with them on if at all not to mention it a pain in the butt to put them on and take them off. i saw LCS has a bird tether that straps to the foot of the bird and the weight of the tether is supposed to let the bird fly a little then fall down to recapture. is the tether a better idea than the harness? has anyone else used something to this nature? i just dont want to lose the rest of my birds and not be able to finish starting my young pointer.
