Okay so we have two dogs and two cats. I need ideals on raising the chicks I am getting with cats?
Have your brooders set up so that the dogs and cats absolutely can not get at the chicks.
Neither my cats nor dogs have any access to my brooders. I had to install a door in my basement to do it, but I have them firmly separated.
have a wild 10 month old Rottweiler who thinks she is a cat this is what I did
at first I just had 4 baby chicks ( til chicken math took )
This is a 500 Varikenne(XL) with a heat plate they go under
Then when they outgrew this (and I added 4 more) they upgraded to this which has a top (29" x 29")
NOW they are in this 4'x4'dog exercise pen with a top of the same material
So the first two nights our oldest cat tried to get them, but since then they don't care. Today my chicks got introduced to their soon to be permanent home.
Raise your chicks away from the cat till they are full grown!
My cat is a monster till they are full grown! She watches them out in the run, licking her lips!
Once they are big she never looks at them!
KICK Their BUTTS!!!
My young dog got a good reminder tonight to not mess with the Ducks!!!
