    My neighbors have ALOT ok kitty's, stalked my chickens, but never any bites.

    If a cat was to puncture the skin, what would I put on it?

    Cat bites can get infected pretty easily. I doubt that a chicken would hang around and get bitten, but I would just clean it up with a disinfectanct soap, and put plain Neosporin ointment on it. Then watch for any swelling or sings of abcess.
