Good evening! Tonight I learned something very interesting about owls. I took my 7 yr old to a sort of hokie dokie halloween night time thing at a local botanical garden, and well there were some semi - tamed owls there with the people that owned them. The man with the horned owl said owls dont actually eat other birds, including chickens. But they simply get sick of them and dont want them in their territory. They will even put up with other birds in their area for sometime until one night.......kill! Oh and they can only eat things that they can swallow whole. I know this doesnt solve the problem of them killing hens, but I still found it interesting!
