Owls owl

The Owl Rescue Centre recently welcomed two little miracle chicks into their family and watching them hatch is incredibly heartwarming.


The Owl Rescue Centre has been featured on Good Things Guy a number of times for all the amazing work they do. They not only focus on saving birds but also reducing plastic within the environment and ocean.

The two Spotted Eagle Owls were rescued as eggs about four days after their mother was found dead. The rescue centre has shared an update about the fuzzy little owlets. The little miracles are being celebrated because their eggs were left unattended for so long.

Dr Anya, a local vet from Pretoria took the eggs in from Adele van Eyssen, the woman who found them and placed them in an incubator.

The eggs were then sent to the Owl Rescue Centre where they thankfully hatched a few days later. Watch the amazing moment below.

Now a full three weeks later, the little owlets are doing well and making great progress in their growth.

“Adele van Eyssen’s from Pretoria rescued these little guys when they were still eggs 4 days after their mom had died.

Her local vet Dr Anya put them in an incubator and 3 weeks later.. Surprise surprise, we have 2 gorgeous owls. Absolutely amazing that eggs left for so long could be saved.

Big thank you to Adele and our brilliant volunteers Karien Smit and Lee Ann Hezlett”

You can see them being fed in the update video below.
