My cat WILL NOT leave our pullets alone. He is bound on determined to catch one. We were going to free range the girls but he makes that impossible. Is there any way to train him to leave them alone?
Good idea.Is this outside? Maybe sit and wait with a hose set on 'stream'? I kept my pullets away from the cat (behind a fence) until they were big enough to not be 'prey' for the cat. I have one cat who really thinks he is funny. He chases with out intent, but I would rather he didnt chase at all. If I thought he had intent to capture/kill, he would have had the hose turned on him already. We have acquired a young rooster that has not been integrated into the main flock yet, but I am hoping he does not find the cat funny once he becomes the 'man of the house'.
If they pullets are still inside, maybe a spray bottle. Hiss at the same time you spray and the cat will associate the sound of the hiss with getting wet and react as though he is getting wet even when you are no longer using the water.
