I'd say that it depends on the cats.....  Feral cats, for sure.  A hungry feral cat, absolutely.  A cat with a strong prey drive, perhaps.  I have 3 cats (2 of whom go outside, one doesn't).  They don't seem to take any notice of any of my birds, chooks included.  But they are individuals, I wouldn't extrapolate their disinterest to be representative of cats in general.  My guess would be that a well-fed domestic cat couldn't be bothered chasing the chooks, but again, it depends on the individual cat.
