I am farm supervisor at Woodside Animal Farm in Bedfordshire and was wondering if you could help me learn some more about our European Eagle Owl - in particular some information on diet amount, frequency, habit and worming. He is a display bird with a large free flying enclosure
We think it would be great to build up some connections to places like yourselves to help educate and improve animal care on a whole
The owl will need a mixed diet of chicks, rat, quail and rabbit if available. We feed our flying birds chicks 5 days a week and a combination of rat and quail on the other two days.
When the birds are in moult, we feed chicks 4 days a week and rat, quail & rabbit 3 days a week.
We worm our European Eagle Owl once a year with Panacur with a dosage of 1ml per 1 kilo weight - however I suggest you to check with your vet before administrating.
