They are ready to be let out if they've been trained, but word of caution. The first couple of times you let them out, the weather should be darn near perfect. No rain, no high wind, plenty of sun.........once they've been out a few times and begin doing some flying, you can let them out in less perfect conditions, but at first, give them every chance you can to have a successful "out of the loft" experience.

It is nerve wracking to release them the first time. They are scared, too, so they will fly on and off and go inside when they get scared. When I mean fly I mean just taking off, then going to the ground or flying on top of the loft roof, house roof and sometimes trees. Then they will make small circles. As they gain strength, they will make bigger circles. (I am talking about young birds here--not yet wing strong.)

My advice is to watch them. Make sure they don't get startled. That is the most important thing. Make sure there is no absolutely no hawks! My birds died that way. They basically don't have the strength to out fly the predator and basically they are too naive to recognize the danger.

Our forum member has this video which shows their training: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D3B1Su5fp2I&feature=related
