The new year brings a new predator to the farm.  I had my first owl sighting last night.  Coming home in the dark two nights ago I noticed one of the ducks trapped in the poultry netting.  I switched the fence off and untangled the duck.  Once untangled it quacked off happily to join the others.  I thought it was weird but I didn't give it much thought as I locked all the birds into their houses for the night. 

Last night I again came home in the dark to another duck stuck in the netting.  As I got closer and shown the spot light, I heard it.  The unmistakable, 'who who' of the owl, it had killed a chicken.  The duck must have given it more of a fight and both the dying duck and the owl were stuck in the netting. 

After a quick trip to the house, a few moments later I made sure that owl took its last bird.  This was the first time I had seen or even heard an owl up close.  While they are very good looking birds, I cant have this owl taking out my birds every night. 

Predators are all around the farm waiting to strike at any time, this seems more true during the winter months as food becomes scarce.  In this cause I only lost a few birds and I got lucky to be in the right place at the right time and was able to eliminate the predator. 

The attack shows me that this owl was going to keep coming back night after night to take bird after bird until it was caught or killed all of my birds.  Life and death are both constants on the farm.  While you don't ever want to lose any of your animals to predators it will happen.  Going forward we will take a deeper look into how we can all protect our animals on the farm. 

This time I got lucky to catch this owl in the act.  How have you fought back against predators?  We would love to hear about your predator issues and way you fixed the problem.  As always email us or leave a message in the comments.

Owls are nocturnal beings; I have not experienced an owl attack however there is a common misconception that owls are domesticated animals looking at the number of attacks of creatures on land and on air, it's necessary to do research if you are considering making an owl a pet. If you do decide to get an owl as a pet, there are classes, guidebooks and videos available on the precautions that you need to take.

I wouldn’t call it an attack to his animals. Owls are just hungry for doing what they did and that’s not the reason to kill them. Perhaps, the solution to that is you give them something to eat that and maybe it can prevent them from “attacking” the birds. When I read the title Owl Attack, I don’t why I suddenly felt the ache in my heart, probably because of Hedwig, the popular pet of Harry Potter. I know that it’s out of topic but it’s just sad and heartbreaking that someone would do that to an owl. Even when the owl is at fault, it’s not an excuse to kill such a beautiful and lovely creature. My advice is that you must be cautious so the owl will not threaten any of your birds and I hope that you can give the owls something to eat to prevent them from doing such a thing again.
