How do you stop owl attacks at night? I have had a bantam taken and another attacked at night

Help what to do?

icon_welcome2 Jon07,

Lock up your flock at night so they are nice and safe from predators. Make sure nothing can dig under a fence, jump a fence or get in from above. Then you will have peace of mind and sleep at night too.

I find the tawney frogmouths are one of the worst to attack at night and harass the budgies more so
