We hatched out 13 Dominiques tuesday and my daughter and I decided to take them outside friday since its 90* here. We set up a little fence panel in the corner between the house and the garage giving them about a 6x6 area in the shade. I had just sit the chicks out of a box and was turning around when this old tom cat jumped off a wall like a mountain lion u see on tv and right in the middle of the chicks under my feet, and had one! My daughter had a book in her hand had to beat it in the back and head to make it let go. Well the chick has a wound but I treated it and its ok. I dont know who he belongs to but he is dead the next time he comes here! I going to set him up and put the old 12ga in my lap for the nest visitation!
