Hi, I have raised chickens for many years. My cats have never bothered my chickens or even my little chicks, but they have been around them all their lives. I am sure some cats would kill chickens though. Just keep an eye on it.
My cat tried to stalk my chickens when I first got them. He soon learned, though, that he can't have them. I kept saying NO! to him each time he's start creeping up on them. Now he still likes to get into the coop - but he tries to eat their food rather than bothering them.
I had a cat eyeing up my three hens about 2 mouths ago i got feed up scaring it off so i sat (with a jug of water) and watched to see what the cat did...!
The cat jumped to the ground and started stroking my Light Sussex, She pop her head my looked side on at the cat them stood bolt up right neck in the air then a big brooooooooooooooooook
next thing the cat new the Light Sussex was at full steam for him but at the same time my other 2 hens jumped in the air wings open coming down feet first on the cat.!
I never new chicken where that violent?
My Sussex had a bit of fluff in her beak for about 10 mins just walking around with it
I never seen a cat since but as my girls our big i don't think cats are a problem but if you have some small hens I'd keep an eye on it
