I have an intruder in my coop and run. She is fast and sly. She hides in my flock. When I try to seperate my hens and coop them she runs into the coop. When I let the ladies go into the run she gets in the middle of them and sleeks out into the run. I have place traps. I have tried seperating them. I have tried feeding her away from my ladies but she stays tight within the flock. When the chickens move she moves with them. I'm to slow it seems. I can't seem to remove her. I know how she got in and will fix it once she is gone. She is bold enough to eat with my ladies. Taking suggestions. She is wild nothing tame about her.

When she's in the coop, block the pop door so she can't get out.
That closes her and the chickens in together. If the chickens go into the run she does as well. She hisses and claws at me or I would grab her and kick her out. She is to light for the trap I have:( .

Closes it up and wait till after dark when the gals are on roost.

Do you have other outside cats ? I have three outside cats that are welcome in the chickens yards and coops
My only animals are the chickens. Nothing against the kitten but it is unhealthy and I'm sure she's not eating properly. Chicken feed isn't what she needs. I'm hoping to get her out so she can find a better spot to live.
Cute as all get out seeing her sleeping with the hens on the roosting bar. I'm sure the smell of her deters mice. She just isn't where she should be to be healthy and happy long term.
