    I looked out on my deck and saw my 20 week old redstar chasing my cat - a confirmed bird killer.

    Finally he knows how the birds feel when he does it.

    Maybe the Redstar will kick some kitty butt! That'll teach the cat to chase the chickens!

    My cats are all indoor, and so far they've been pretty good. Pun'kin got spanked tonight for trying to play hockey with my itty bitty 13 week old bantam red frizzle girl Ruby, but that's about the worst that's ever happened inside. Outside my next door neighbor has cats that she doesn't get fixed so there is always a plethora of kittens running about. Well, they have tried to stalk my chickens but they get bored fast because the chickens won't run. They actually will saunter right up to the cat and peck it's eyes or nose to let it know that it isn't afraid. So for the most part, the cats ignore them, and I'm glad! My dogs don't really mess with them either, with the exception of my lab mix who has tried to chase them once or twice. She knows it's a no no though. It was funny tonight. My kids brought in one of our roos, our bantam white cochin Elvis this evening while I was at work and let him just chill in the living room til I got home. Well after I got home I let Elvis stay in the house for awhile longer. My little bitty frizzle girls Ruby and Happy were still running around and Elvis decided he was going to bully them and steal their food. Well my big furball girl Maddie, she's half Old English Sheepdog and half Chow Chow decided she didn't like the bullying so she got between Elvis and the babies and nudged him away. It was so funny to see two itty bitty frizzles go running as a big hair black and gray furball acts as their protector. Elvis decided he didn't like the challenge of a dog big enough to eat him so he escaped to the opposite end of the living room until the kids finally grabbed a flashlight and took him out to the coop. Normally Maddie doesn't even acknowledge that the birds are in the room. She does the same thing with our kittens, even as Jasper is yanking and hanging on her tail, lol. She just pretends he isn't there. It's funny. I'm often amazed and even more often humbled by the relationships animals can form with other species of animal, including humans. Next time Maddie decides to protect the girls, I'll have to get the camera!

    One of my roosters chases my dog constantly. The dog is now afraid of the roosters!
