Thirty-Six Stages for the Flying Tippler Novice


by E. W. Matthews

1. When the youngsters are five weeks old, they should be removed from their parents and placed in a loft by themselves.

2. For the first two days or so, food and water will be left for them at will. This ensures that they can feed for themselves.

3. Then they should be fed by hand and the water trough withdrawn and only offered after feeding.

New Moderator at FT Group

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for the support you have given this FT discussion group over the past many years. It was an idea that started many years ago with a “list” that was run by list-bot. I don’t even know if the domain even exists today. Is there anyone today on FT that was on my list-bot discussion group? Anyone remember it?
