HATCHING EGG
AND
BABY OWL

STARTS WITH AN EGG, SO I HAVE GIVEN YOU A FASCINATING SIGHT OF AN OWL THAT HAS JUST USED ITS EGG TOOTH TO BREAK THROUGH THE EGG, IT IS A BABY EUROPEAN EAGLE OWL, ALSO I HAVE TAKEN SOME PHOTO’S OF A YOUNG BARN OWL BEFORE IT HAS GROWN INTO A FULLY FEATHERED BARN OWL

THE EGG TOOTH OF THE BABY EUROPEAN EAGLE OWL  HAS JUST BROKEN THROUGH THE EGG.

THIS IS NOT HOW THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO HATCH, I HAVE GIVEN A HELPING HAND THE HEAD HAD STUCK AROUND THE WING OF THE CHICH ,THIS IS HOW MANY DIE IN THE SHELL. THEY CAN NOT MOVE.

YOU CAN SEE THE CHICK IS IN NEED OF A HELPING HAND,SO I PEELED THE SHELL FROM AROUND THE CHICK, BUT IT HAD TO BREAK THE UMBILICAL CORD BY IT’S SELF OR DIE,

SO FAR SO GOOD IT HAS TAKEN 14 HOURS TO GET TO THIS STAGE NOW

LOOK AT HER NOW WITH HER BROTHER

THERE THEY ARE. POUNDA & TWOLIDS

LOOK AT THE CLOUDY EYES  this happens in lots of species of birds, natures way of protecting developing eyes, THEY WILL BE CLEAR IN  52 DAYS, (EUROPEAN EAGLE OWLS) SO DONT WORRY THEY ARE FINE.

BABY BARN OWLS

PLEASE PUT WATER OUT FOR BIRDS IN HOT WEATHER.
