So I went outside to feed my chickens at 5 this morning and sometimes one or two of the chickens fly up on the edge of the run for a roost. Well I saw that two of them were roosting on the side so I went over to push them inside the pen. Well as I got closer I noticed these were much bigger than my chickens and when I was about five feet away I noticed they were owls! They flew away right after and I ran into the run to find out that out of 11 that were there last night only 5 remained alive! I can't believe this! I have never had an owl bother me. I usually tell others to get cats in this situation since mine keep away most predators. I guess I'll have to start locking them up at night, but is there anyway to deter an owl? I think I'll have my brother come over to try and remove it, but he's out of town for another week and I don't know anyone who shoots.
