    Hi I'm new to the forum. I've been looking at stuff on here from pinterest for awhile but just started really checking it out. I had a small flock of six hens since last march but they were just attacked by something. I think it was my neighbors big cat. Anyway I only have one of my girls left :(. She's an EE named Cuddles. Right now she's in the house healing up. Poor girl. She's my daughters and a very beloved pet. I'll be working on a new pen before she goes back out and I'll be getting some new chicks soon. Just wanted to introduce myself :)

    Thanks everyone. Yes I plan on doing some reading and trying to make the new pen better. I live in a neighborhood and know the cat was bothering them a lot. I didn't think a cat could kill a full grown chicken so that's where I was wrong :( I don't want anything to happen again. Cuudles seems to be healing well. Her legs still sore but better. She has two wounds that are healing nicely too :)

    Oh yes, a cat can take out full grown chickens, so can Chihuahuas or little doxies. If you can trap the cat maybe you could relocate her to an animal shelter
