we have 5 about 6 week old chicks. ive read on here that a cat will kill (and im sure mine would!) a small chick,but not mess with a full grown chicken. so my ? is, when are they big enought to be safe around cats? so far the cats seem curious,but have never attempted to attack. but im afraid to turn my head for a sec when i have them out in the yard,bad enough if a hawk would get one,but one of my own precious little kittys? that would be to much. and yes my cats do kill mice, birds, small bunnies if that matters!
