I haven't seen too many messages on here about feral cats. I know from 2 separate incidents that they are out there to get your chicks!! So watch out!! Don't discount them as a real threat. A feral cat took 2 and injured 1 of my 2 week old chicks about 10 days ago. That cat has been relocated. Last night we scared off another trying to get at my now 3 week old girls!! The trap is set for this one!! Just keep an eye out, they are sneaky and smart.
