Notes to answerer
Asker: Sorry, I am looking for a more technical word (with regards to breeding in captivity), the clutch of eggs laid by a raptor...any ideas in that direction? Please provide samples, thx

Asker: Is this the term that could be used both in general and in raptor husbandry? Thanks so much!
