Ok this is new, we've always had a cat that never paid any attention to baby chicks. I just put our newly hatched babies in a dog crate in the kitchen and I slept on the couch just in case they needed anything. I just woke up to find them frantically peeping and both of my daughters new kittens doing all in their power to get at the new babies!!!! I locked the kittens in the bathroom, but what the heck? I'm guessing ill have to put the babies in a room where the cats can't get them tomorrow, but this is a stress I wasn't anticipating! Suggestions welcome.
