I have three young hens and every afternoon I let them out into the yard to free-range. A lot of the time this creepy black cat with yellow eyes comes from the neighbourhood and spy's on my chickens creepily. The chickens were so scared that they went berserk, they flew and ran all-over the place. once they were still in the coop when that cat came and they were so scared they were pecking the wire mesh so hard that their beaks bled. can cats eat chickens?
