I hope I'm asking in the right spot. We have an outdoor cat that we love ALOT! and he's our "barn" cat. We are going to get our chickens this summer and I really would like to let them out to free-range for at least a few hours a day. My problem is how to keep the mighty hunter cat from attacking my chickens. I'm planning on full size birds and not bantams, but no rooster. I've seen alot about poultry netting for pasturing a flock, but I don't think DH will go for that just yet. We really would like to teach the cat to leave the birds alone. Is this something the chickens will teach him or will I loose a few before he gets tired of being pecked? Thanks!
