Resident Predators

Although this magnificent owl is a predator and totally unwelcome in my chicken yard, I can’t help feeling honored by it’s stunning presence. We have two owls that are regular visitors at TBN Ranch. They are usually seen at dusk.

Owl, Arizona

This rattlesnake is definitely a predator I could live without…  unfortunately Arizona is home sweet home to them. With a little a lot of respect we manage to live together in peace. There have been probably 6 rattlesnakes found on the property over the last 10 years… not too bad. None of our chickens or chicks have ever been a victim.
