Question-whiteCan't get owls to appear

Please_share

I have been planting and harvesting all of the suggested crops to attract owls, but out of many harvests I have only gotten 7 owls to appear. Any hints?

Thank you all for the tips. Wheat really does seem to be the crop of choice.

I had my snow owl for a good while now..got it from planting many crops of pumpkin and pansies. Have the one from last year too! Once you win it it's your.s I am not sure how they are doing it this year..but I was 3 last year, but was only given one to keep. Not sure why. I hope it's not the same with the snow owls.

Also, be on the lookout, as I have noticed when planting crops and fertilizing the crops. When I leave the game and come back. 1/3 of my crops are unfertilized. So it's wasting my fertilizer too.. Not sure what's up with that.

I plant and fertilize 1 row of wheat through my farm and usually get 4-5 snow owls. I have 4 fields and 8 plots of wheat per row. I have 6 alabaster owls all in storage. When one was on the board - I did NOT get any more snow owls. So put it in storage in the inventory. I started getting the owls again. The snow owls do not count towards your maximum animals and can only be used once. The alabaster owls do count towards your maximum animals but can be used 20 times and will water up to 2 groves of trees. There is no maximum number of Alabaster owls that you can get . Just keep on planting and get as many as you can. BUT store them and use them later!!!

I've completed mine at this point, and it was almost exclusively through planting wheat, which I needed for order board stuff.

I was rather surprised today when I harvested a lot of fertilized wheat and five owls appeared all at once! Now I need only one to complete all the goals and get this Alabaster Snow Owl. Try planting the wheat.

I thought u only get owls from planting red pansies, pumpkins and onions.

Wheat seems to work best here...fertilized. i've already unlocked 1 owl and am half way to another. wheat. ;)

Having the same problem. No owls. Fertilizing crops or not,they don't show. and I have plenty of room on farm. I've grown all the crops,still owls don't show..what gives?

I only seem to get owls from onions and pumpkins. Hope that helps x

I have plenty of space for animals and am still not getting owls. We have had owls before and various other birds they all used to give 10 uses and then they disappeared these only give one( if you can get them!!) Then they did count towards the number of animals you could keep on the farm.I always fertilize all crops I plant so that doesn't make a difference either.

I have my full quota of animals and I still get owls, Johanna, so I don't think you're right about owls counting against that total and not showing up if you're maxed.

Mary, are you fertilizing the crops? I don't know for sure that it helps, but it can't hurt, right?

It's the grand prize bird you can use multiple times, regular ones only once.
If you don't get owls to appear, check your total amount of animals: owls count in it! Pasture or move to inventory all the prized animals you can to clear some room for owls :)

Does anyone know if you can only use the snow owls once ? I had 5, used them and they have all disappeared! In the past when we get any sort of birds I am sure they could be used about 10 times>

Ah ha: Zynga wants you to buy owl's nests! Last startup, I got a popup to buy owl's nests. #aintgoingtohappen #toocheap

Seems totally bizarre. I play all the time. Sometimes I get owls. Most of the time I don't. Doesn't seem to matter what crop. I suspect Zynga is still adjusting the algorithm. Be sure to stock up on wool for the owl treats. Eventually they will come.
