    i have what might be a strange problem,i've just gotten a breeding pair of golden silkies,the hen is a bantam tiny little girl and our cat wants to kill it,the silkies are in a pen at the moment till my other hens are used to them so all connie can do for now is sit and look in but i'm sure as soon as i let them out she's gonna try something,i know that look in her eye! she's never showed any interest in the bigger feathered hens,i'm at a complete loss! sorry btw just noticed i posted this in wrong forum

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan :D

    Small chickens can definately be prey for cats. Keep her penned up.

    Hello & welcome! [​IMG]

    Our chicks are maybe 6/7 weeks old and the cat's too interested for my tastes. Until they're full grown we'll be keeping the chicken in the run. Good luck to you!
