I have 3 cats. I also have 9 chickens...my cats have spent hours throughout the summer with the chickens as in watching them from outside the run and from the garage windows (when the chickens free range). I took my smallest and mellowest cats in the run to interact with my 15-week-old chickens and he did pretty good minding his own buisnes until one of the chickens got too close and too comfortable. He started chasing the chicken, but to me it looked like he was just playing. I KNOW if I let either of my other cats out they wouldn't think twice about eating one..so I don't know what to do..it gets very tiring trying to put the cats away everytime I want to let the chickens free range. Plus the cats end up pooping in the garage...NOT GOOD!!!! If you could help me figure out a way to get them peacefully aquainted I would love it! Or tell me your experiences. Thank you!
