Sometime back I had an issue with a stray kitten. She made her home in my chicken barn. She stays with the chickens where ever they go. In the run, she is there. In the woods, she is there. Too bad she doesn't lay eggs. I don't have a problem with mice/rats so I guess she is earning her keep. She has some behaviors like a chicken. She likes to sit on the perchs with them. I guess the pecking order is that she is on the bottom of the list. The real chickens play/deal well with her. Today I went outside to look in the window and this is what I see... She sleeps in the nesting box.
