Keep Lady Independence and Sir Hatcher streaming online!
‘Lady Independence’ was hatched and released by the American Eagle Foundation. When she reached sexual maturity, she and her mate ‘Sir Hatcher’ took up residence just 5 miles from the American Eagle Foundation.
They have produced several young since 2013. The AEF named her Lady Independence, in honor of her mother (Independence). Her mate was named Sir Hatcher in honor of AEF friend, mentor and supporter Bob Hatcher—the man who made the AEF’s hacking program possible in the early 1990s.
