    I have always been worried that my six cats would someday cause a problem with my chickens, but never the other way around.
    In the last few weeks my young group of chickens ( six 6 month old and five 9 month old) have started bullying my three outdoor tom cats. They run them off of their food and out of their houses. The cats are terrified of them! These aren't large chickens either, quite small.

    Anyone else ever had a similar problem?

    I will try to get pictures to post later.

    [​IMG]My poor kitties. My black cat is hiding in the doghouse. I ran the chickens off so the cats could finish eating. Maybe I better just feed them after the chickens have roosted from now on. Don't want a war to start.

    They are bullies! The little brats, lol! Poor kitties. They need to stand their ground, and show 'em who's boss.

    Well, I am glad to see mine are not the only ones. I found two eggs in the house the cats use today.
