My 9 week old chicks are now out in the garage (old enough to have their own flat ). The last couple of days I've been letting them out supervised, to graze etc. Any low flying bird will send them scuttling for cover, but when my old ginger cat comes strolling up he is their best friend and they show no fear! I had to step in when they started pecking his tail! They are BO so I wonder if they just think he is another chick! They have yet to meet my black and white cat!! OGC often sends my old hen into a panic when he appears under the gate, but she is fox wary. I'm a little concerned - will they learn what is dangerous from the older hen?
