    I'm thinking that this might not be one of your better ideas.

    Chickens are omnivores so yes they could eat a cat. But, they are not hunters so you have to do the killing, possibly skinning and feeding of the dead cat to the chickens. Seems to me a better solution might be a trap and re-homing the cat(s).

    From what part of the world do you come from?

    Domesticated cats are not normally considered a food source where I live.

    I'm sure the chickens would eat the meat though, they will also indiscriminately eat chicken after all..
