    I would catch her in a live trap. The kittens should be easy to just scoop up. Call your local animal shelter and have them come and collect her. Or you just can keep your chickens up and don't let them out if you are planning on keeping her and them. I have cats and they do not bother them. They do like to run through a group of them to startle them to watch them fly. But they have to have some for of entertainment. We call it cat t.v.

    Wow, you need to protect your chickens. Keep them locked up unless you can be right there to protect them. Also, best for that stray cat to get spayed after weaning those babies. Can you take them to your local SPCA or Animal Control?

    I can't get rid of them because my brother has taken to them and would hate me for it, the babys will be gone in two weeks and then the mom will have a problume with the new roo as soon as he gets a little biger.
    (and the hen is still a live and seaparated from the others till she starts walking around shes one strong bird.).
