For the pet available through the bossing rewards system, see Cornellius.

The Saradomin owl, a level 70 summoning pet, is one of the three God birds. It can be hatched from a blue bird's egg, and has three stages of growth: Chick, Bird, and Owl. When fully grown it counts as a Saradomin item in the God Wars Dungeon. It also has very prominent eyebrow feathers.

Bird's eggs can be obtained from Bird nests, which are dropped from trees while Woodcutting or obtained from the Miscellania Kingdom Management activity. In either case finding an egg is quite rare. To hatch an egg, place it in a pet shop incubator (found in Yanille or Taverley), and then wait for an hour before retrieving your chick (time spent offline doesn't count).

Every two minutes, your pet's growth will jump up by 0.5% (unless it's already an owl) and its hunger will jump up by 5.25% for chicks, 4.75% for birds and 4.1667% for owls. Chicks must be fed Ground fishing bait while birds and owls eat normal Fishing bait. It will take about six hours and forty minutes for a 0% chick to mature into a bird and further six hours and forty minutes for the bird to reach adulthood.

Having reached adulthood, the owl may be placed in the Menagerie of your Player-owned house.

At level 80 Summoning you can understand the Saradomin owl.

Although the mature owl counts as a Saradomin item in the God Wars Dungeon, (as long as it is present with the player and not in the inventory), the younger bird and hatchling forms do not count as Saradomin items.

None of the forms count as a Saradomin item to make Bandits aggressive.

Update history[edit | edit source]

The update history project is a work-in-progress – not all updates to this topic may be covered below. See here for how to help out!
  • ninja 1 March 2021 (Update):
    • After some feedback, the Ninjas have given the Saradomin, Zamorak, and Guthix god bird pets some Agility lessons. These follower pets will now follow behind the player at a faster speed.
  • ninja 1 February 2021 (Update):
    • The Saradomin owl, Zamorak hawk and Guthix raptor have been converted from object pets to interface pets.
      • If you own these god-birds already you will unlock them upon next log in - otherwise, they can be obtained by taking the egg from an incubator.
      • All three growth stages will become available on unlock.
  • patch 17 March 2009 (Update):
    • The god familiars (Zamorak hawk, etc) will now provide the same protection as god-related items while in God Wars.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Examine phrase "Lovely blue plumage" is a reference to Monty Python's famous "Dead Parrot" sketch.
  • Phileas, the Lumbridge Sage, has a Saradomin owl with him.
  • Its line "Oh, really?" is a reference to the O RLY? meme.
  • If wearing an item of Zamorak, the Owl will say: "How can you wear those tainted items?"
  • While the Saradomin chick is inside your inventory, the examine text will say "A chick". But when it is dropped, it will say "A fluffy chick."
