For the last 2 nights we have heard owls in our front and back yard (we have an acre). My husband went out several times and shot up in the trees trying to scare them away. They keep coming back. They were here at dawn this morning and we got to actually see them... 3 large timber owls! I free range during the day usually from about 7am-5pm. Here is my question... At what time of day are these owls a risk? If I shorten the free range time to 9am-4pm, will they be out and hunting during those daylight hours? I have bantams and have babies right now. In the pen, they are secure during the evening and night.
