Tonight I left garage door open making to brooder can be seen and accessed from outside. A barred owl actually flew into garage. I was alerted to owl's presence by dogs that actually caught owl and had it pinned down. I was surprised to have owl actually fly into garage. No losses incurred, even on side of owl. Owl did put talons to me when I picked it up. It weighed much less than it would appear based on appearance. Owing to how brooder is constructed I doubt owl could have gotten in even if allowed more time. Chicks were very much frightened by ordeal. Dogs had fun. Barred owl. Feather was its own. Even as held for photograph it stared at chicks in brooder so a very focussed critter.
