Best Answer

Owl castings otherwise known as owl pellets consist of undigested fur, feathers, bills, claws, teeth, and bones of the animals they prey on. It takes approximately 6-10 hours for a casting to form after an owl has eaten a meal and is regurgitated anywhere from 10-16 hors later. These pellets are a good way to identify the presence of an owl's roosting spot.
