    a rather sensationalized title for you tube, though still technically correct. My cat does tell tall tales...

    I have the same problem!! My hen was probably killed by the bobcat because she thought it was the household kitty and tried chasing it..



    If one of the hens was coming to close to the cat, the cat would think she's a threat, and "correct" the chicken, trying to defend herself. If she pulled a feather out of the chicken that'll explain the feather in her mouth.

    It probably watches the chickens like that because it doesn't want to be embarrassed [​IMG], my hens have literally beat up my cat..... [​IMG]
