English to German translations [PRO] Science - Zoology / Ornithology / falconry
English term or phrase:hacking
This refers to a type of breeding in semi-liberty where falcons are bred in lands or open lands next to a falconers house and the falconer provides them with food but they feed the young themselves and are able to fly around instead of being in a chamber. Does anyone know the correct term for this in german? Thanks!
Explanation: I foud the word "Naturbrut" and it's explanation in an article about birds in general, but I think you can also use this word in a text about falconry.
Vogelzüchter sprechen von Naturbrut, wenn die Küken von den Vogeleltern ohne Zutun des Menschen bis zur Futterfestigkeit aufgezogen werden. Sie haben nur geringen Kontakt mit ihrem Pfleger, etwa bei der regelmäßigen Nistkastenkontrolle.
