I have sent a complaint to my county's animal control about this one neighbor, whose cat is coming near my yard in my morning.. And today I found two of my young silkies with chick fuzz ripped off their faces. Now I can tolerate a cat going to the LF, but when you mess with my babies, you mess with me! Poor darlings were flighty and one had a swollen face. How painful and scary it must have been for them! It didn't finish them off so it couldn't have been a dog or a coyote, and no, raccoons are not where I am. Maybe in the mountainous areas about 50 or so miles away, but not in this desert. I have a pair of OEGBs in the enclosure the silkies were originally in, but the OEGBs are overly agressive to the silkies so I've been letting them free-range with 2 hens, a silkie roo, and some ducks. This neighborhood is usually a peaceful place, I don't get why people moved to a small farming community and don't care that their cat is a danger to my chickens. Ergh. I do have a chicken guard dog. But silly Bruno is in his teenage stage right now and I don't quite trust him yet with youngins unsupervised. I just really hope that animal control will atleast tell them "hey, keep your pets on your own property or else there's gonna be an issue".
