Most of my birds are free range. Most of those retreat to roost that are relatively owl resistant. About ten birds have still insisted on roosring in trees which are not owl resistant. Great horned owls are coming in at about midnight each night causing all sorts of fun with those ten birds. They are knocking the chickens out of tree but not actually taking any once they are on ground. Normally owls will take chickens once they are on ground. I think my dog is stopping owls from finishing job or owls are treating activity like "tipping cows". I am also sleeping under stars once fun starts to drive owls off and place wayward chickens in desired roost locations. Owls are helping with that process since chickens will not return to same location once disturbed at night. Only losses were a couple weeks ago and that was a very small bird.
