    I have been bard rock free range and I leave the coop open so they can return when they want. I noticed a stray cat hanging around lately however it hasnt been messing with the chickens. But I just discovered why he hangs out here, he has been sneaking in the coop for the chicken feed.

    I live trap to manage the stray cat population. If friendly, test, vaccinate, fix, and rehome. You may have a local cat rescue or humane society that will help, or consider adopting him yourself. Unmanaged feral cats reproduce really really well, and have disease issues, and possibly are micrchipped and lost. Mary
