The owls themselves are adorable, they seemed to be well looked after and they liked the staff member, who was very nice. However I can't help but question how ethical it is to keep nocturnal animals in a small room with bright lighting durning the...More

Thank you for having a shop come. I live life that I matched the owl keeping in a shop with a person, and, as for the owl, all is not nocturnal. And an owl is an animal with a few exercising desires, but may sometimes...More

I am very sorry. About a smell, I am improved in future. Thank you for good advice. Though you came to the shop, I am sorry. You will not surely feel the smell of the shop when you came next. Thank you.

A must go!! The staff as well as owls are wonderful!! My favorite is the barn owl Hama 👍👍👏👏 it's quite quiet and you can hold and feed the owls.
