In due request of some people in different forums i'm on, I'm introducing to you guys my handfed captive owls; magpie, nightingale and cuckoo..

This is them a couple of months back as babies starting to shed their down feathers off - December 1, 2013
(Sorry 'bout the photo quality and the date stamp lol)









Unfortunately, nightingale and cuckoo has been sold and now have their new respective masters.

This is magpie now at 4 months, eating and hunting on her own - Again, sorry for the worse than poor quality. Took me a lot of courage just to zoom this in her face. She hates and will attack the camera at will. I almost died, you know?! LOL





Hopefully, i could take new photos again when she's off guard :D

I hear owls make really terrible pets.... so how are they in your experience? and what do you let them hunt?

Even as adults they are about the size of large pigeons plus they have ground-dwelling habits and prefer eating insects than larger prey like mice. They can and will fly if needed though.

They're quite easy to feed and maintain. Just keep an eye at them at night coz they love eyeing on my sugar gliders lol

Philippine scops owl. A small species of owl. They're captive bred descendants (grand kids) of my dad's wild-caught owls from 9 years ago
