We are now the proud parents of 3 new baby chicks, one black sex link and 2 Delawares. They are only a week old, so still in brooder but I have been taking them out to the grass w/me when the kids go outside since its been so warm. My cat however, is looking at them like lunch. For now, I've just been moving her inside when they are outside, but I am wondering if there is ever a time when you can trust a cat around the chickens - or how to let your cat know the chicks are off limit. I of course would never trust her alone with them, but I would hope once the chicks are full grown I can at least feel like I can turn my back once in awhile when I'm letting them roam the yard. any cat and chick owners with some tips?
