This is taken from another thread that I didn't want to hyjack with my question. (Mouse Plague!! HELP https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=99745) Quote:I'm curious about barn cats and chickens sharing the same building. When they are made to find their own food, do they ever see chickens as a possible dinner? When we start our flock we plan on having them in their own special area of the barn / yard, locked away from the cats, but I worry that the cats might stress the hens by hunting them. Anyone have anything they could share on this subject? Thanks!
