Barn Owls (Captive bred) These 2 we in a dreadful state after being kept in a cat box for 1 month. Both survived this ordeal & are now doing well.

Wild Little Owls, note the colouration of the one on the left. Yes this is a white Little Owl, very rare indeed & a wild bird.

Barn Owl (Captive Bred) Sadly this Owl was kept very badly in a rabbit hutch & from the injuries sustained we sadly had to put the Owl to sleep. The more Owls people breed in captivity the problems like this get more common. Think first before buying Owls
