Hello, I am in desperate need of some advice. Our female Narangassett has been sitting on a nest in our field for a month and we just found out yesterday that she has 9 chicks that are only a few days old. She has moved them to various places around the yard and while she seems to be protecting them relatively well, we are having some concerns about our cats. We have 5 cats that are starting to "stalk" the babies and are finding her everytime she moves them. My question is.....should I take some of the babies and bring them in under a heat lamp until they are bigger or we give them away or is there something else I can do to prevent them from being caught by the cats. We are in no way planning to keep all 9, but are currently advertising and spreading the word in order to give some away. However, in the mean time, we still have the cat issue. I think they are more of a problem than other predators like racoons and stuff because they are so fast and she has so many. After watching her, she seems to be so overwhelmed with that many and can't keep up with all of them...that is why I am wondering if it would be good to bring some inside...so she has less to keep up with. If the cats end up getting them, it is going to be because they are trailing behind her not when they are with her. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. And we live in Missouri and are definitely needing to find these beautiful chicks some homes, if anyone is interested. Thank you in advance for your responses.
