Interesting report James. I have seen a "10 year period" mentioned before
when considering whether or not birds are "tickable" and I wonder what the
basis for this is - for some small birds this could represent 10
generations I guess, whereas for an Ostrich it might be barely 3
generations. I would personally have thought that 3 generations is a
reasonable proof of being wild, but this means the criteria would change
according to species?
