Default Re: Captive barn owl egg laying

Much like poultry, a male is not needed for the production of eggs. Lone females of many species, kept alone in aviaries, will lay.
"But tell the Dauphin I will keep my state,
Be like a King, and show my sail of greatness,
When I do rouse me in my throne of France!"
Henry V Act 2.
