Swallow Gryphon by Magweno Swallow Gryphon by Magweno
The swallow gryphons should be migrating back North soon for the breeding season. This one got trapped in my aviary last year when he was trying to poach some of the quail food and I was going to let him go but he was sooo skinny I kept him in over the winter. I don't know what swallow gryphons like best to eat so I just fed him live mealworms, millet, chick crumbs and some lettuce. Turns out he doesn't like mango at all! Anyway after being fed by me all winter he's got pretty tame and is quite happy to sit in my hand and let me stroke him.

Not for sale outside of the UK, sorry. There are issues sending swallow feathers cross borders.
