11 When feeding the bird they use a weighing scale. The scale must be reliable. Its important when dealing with small birds, as they may be endangered by even small weight differences when at flying weight. The successful hunting weight may vary, usually increasing as the bird is flown and develops more muscle. If it means blow the weight the bird will be low and weak. If it means above the range of the weight, the bird will be unresponsive in the field, lacking motivation to hunt or returning to the falconer in a timely fashion.

12 A falconer bird is usually housed in mews. The mews are carefully designed to prevent bodily injury and feather damage. During the day when not hunting the bird might be kept perched in a grassy field. Some Europeans feed meat based on its nutritional value to control how hungry the bird is. They feed additional roughage which is fur, so the bird can digest properly. Americans feed their birds whole foods such as mouse or quail. They eat a strictly carnivorous diet. N.p., 22/08/11.
