Is there anything i can do to keep their cats away from my chickens? There's three of them (the cats). They sit on the wall AND on top of the chicken coop. I have yet to see them attack any chickens but they scope them out on a regular basis. I have 7 Americaunas and 2 silkies. The Americaunas seem to be too big for the cats to want to try out but I had two babies hatch about 5 weeks ago with one of my momma silkies and im afraid to let them roam free. They cooped up in a smaller space inside the coop and i feel bad not letting them roam around in the run. Is there anything i can do legally to keep the cats away from them? I work at a wildlife rescue, and was recommended i try bobcat poop dried up, smashed, and sprinkled around the enclosure. It works for a short while but its not really a long term solution. My dogs scare off the cats but they arent outside all day.
