Tally, president of the Oklahoma Game Fowl Breeders Association, said he has used a strobe light at night to keep owls away from his birds. ...
www.tulsaaudubon.org/conservation.htm - Cached - Similar ,,,, You might try making some flashing led lights to help keep the owls away.
Here are some, but they are expensive. http://www.niteguard.com/
I made my own... as well as use the niteguard lights, but still have had owl
trouble.
The best thing you can do is buy a good baby monitor and place the
transmitter
out with your chickens. Then at night when the chickens start squalling you
can get out
there with your shotgun to scare them away. If you catch them in the middle
of a kill
you can stake the dead chicken down and tie 3 traps to the stake and place
them around the chicken... kind of hide the traps with leafs and under the
wing, etc. (make sure you use padded traps so you don't hurt the poor little
owl) then the next morning you can go outside and very gently relocate the
owl.
If he has started visiting and killing your chickens he won't leave on his
own, and the lights won't scare him away. They may scare owls that are new
to the area... but not that old timer.
And for those that don't know, a Great Horned Owl will pull off the chickens
head and swallow it whole. Leaving the rest of the chicken. ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
"Motion Sensor Owl detects and scares away thieves! Its 360 degrees spinning head, glow in the dark eyes and loud "hoot" cause birds and squirrels to flee. Uses 2 AA batteries, not included. See order form for batteries. Plastic owl is 12"H. Sensor Owl; bird away; garden owl; garden owl decoy; garden protector; keep bird away; motion sensor owl; owl decoy; scare bird; scare bird away" http://www.finestsupplies.com/info/motion_sensor_owl

Remeber those singing "big mouth billy bass" things that sold at walmart that where set off my motion, maybe one of those (our some similar toy) would work.

I had a problem with some pigeons roosting on a ledge over my truck in the parking garage. I tried a few things then one day I had a half full water bottle in my hand and set it up on the ledge... That was two years ago and I haven't seen a pigeon since. That water bottle is still there. I think they get spooked by the reflections in the water when they fly up. What ever it is it sure has worked for pigeons.

call your county agent and let them recomend the proper dept of govt. to call. they have devices to lend you to run them off because the owls are probally federally protected . they will help you so you dont harm them.

I know you mentioned that you place was too big to do what was suggested but what if you could just do the netting or something only on the places where you park your truck etc...maybe hang a tarp or something like that.

I don't mind the owls in the area and I like the fact that they work great for rodent control. I just want them to perch somewhere other than my barn.
You guys have giving me some great ideas and I appreciate them. After summarizing all of the information giving I have came up with an idea. I will purchase a motion activate switch that will turn on a strobe light. I found a great plug-in type strobe light for about six bucks and a motion switch for about twelve. I already have electrical outlets there for the florescent lighting. I don't think the owls will like the very bright flashing light.

Thanks again for all the ideas.

pigeon spikes work great...ive used them on poachers, vultures hanging out in the big oaks that liked to take dumps on our cleaning station etc. Im sure it'll only take an owl once to fly up to the perch and impale its head once...then again, we live in a world of monkey see, mokey doooo
