Hi all, just thought I would say hello, to u all, since I recently packed up the sport, due to my health.  :(  I am in the middle of converting the loft at the moment, as I am converting, it in to an Aviary.  I am planning to get a couple of Owls in the next few weeks  ;D both will be imprinted ( Hand Reared ) from eggs.  I went to see the breeder, whom is breeding one of the owls for me, and he showed me around his aviaries, which where amazon, he had everything from owls to falcons, and he also had a big golden eagle.  The owl I am getting from him is a Barn Owl.  I took one of his barn owls out to fly.  I have attached a pic of him, for you all to have a gander at  :)

 

Best wishes to u all

 

Steve.  ;D

Did u all know that if your eggs get damaged in the nest, i.e. cracked, you can repair the eggs with a special silicone based substance?  I never knew that until I went to see the guy, whom is breeing my barn owl for me!  He had a couple of damaged barn owl eggs in his incubator, with he had repaired with this silicone stuff.  The chicks are alive and kicking inside the eggs, as he took me into a dark room, and placed the eggs against a touch, and you could see all the veins, and you could actually see the chick moving around inside the egg!!  :)  You learn something new everyday!!  :D

He did say, as long as the protecting sack inside was not damaged and no fluid leaking out, then it is quite safe to seal up, and the chick will be quite safe  ;D  I always thought myself, that once an egg has been damaged, the chick would die!  I was gob smacked when he said you can repair the egg!!  :D

 

Steve :)

 

Technology of today is wonderful, as long as the wee chick is unharmed by the repairing substance it's great. :) :) :) :)
