    I live on an unfenced acre of Ag/residential land in south Florida. This morning, when I let my free ranged chickens out they took off so I followed them. My 4 girls made a bee line to a neighboors front step where she leaves food out for a number of cats (and likely wild animals) she feeds - there was food there and they chowed down. I already knew my birds were over there and she did previously mention chicken poop on the front step but so far things have been cool. . . they like our new puppy. Your thoughts?

    It shouldn't cause any issues. Many people in the duck section feed it as a occasional treat.

    They can eat cat food, but not too much.
