Only 1 Out of Every 100,000 Barn Owls are Born Black.

Black barn owls have an extremely rare, genetic colour mutation called melanism which makes their feathers dark. Only 1 in every 100,000 barn owls have this colouration! You don’t see black barn owls in the wild because their mother rejects them and doesn’t feed them.
