I've got a 16 week old english pointer. I started getting him bird crazy on dead birds, and he loved them. Got a few live quail today, and he's horrified of them. Any tips to help make him love the live birds? Thanks

IMO I would not worry about live game birds now. Let him b a puppy and just work on house/kennel manners, socialization, riding in a vehicle, etc. As he matures, and becomes bold then start letting him run and throw some good flying pigeons for him to chase. Then start planting some he can't catch and let him bump n chase and build the drive I wouldn't worry about birds for a couple/few months. Maybe Jeff from Lumpys Kennels will jump on here and help out. If u have early questions don't b afraid to ask and/or consult a Pro. Where did u get your pup? How is he bred? Love pointers Smile
