Here i have been debating if my little old cat could kill one of my chickens. No he hasn't but yesterday Spencer (the cat) left us a little surprise by the back door. Ok so it wasn't so little. He's brought home lizards, mice and even rats before. This time he brought home a squirrel. The worst thing about it is the head was off (and next to it) but he ate most of the head, neck, front legs and half of the torso!!!! It was a large squirrel too. It was the grossest thing ever. Now i have no doubt that my cat could take down one of my 21 week old hens. Good thing they are in a pen and not free range.
