On my way to locking up the girls tonight, I heard A LOT of squawking, my initial response is to bolt toward the henhouse, and open the doors to see what is inside. As soon as I open the door, the neighbor's cat dashes out (as well as a RIR.) So I screamed like a girl and chased the cat off my property. And so now I am dealing with six discombobulated hens. Three of which are running around, one is in my arms, and two are in the coop. I herded them all back into the run, and I waited for them to go in. My smaller of RIRs keeps bumping into things in the run, and when she tries to go up the ramp into the coop (she prefers flying,) she crashed into the coop and eventually walks up. Once they were all roosting, I take the small RIR off and inspect her. She smells like cat, and her comb is bleeding. I don't want to jump to conclusions, since the whole coop smells like cat, so I'm going to wait overnight to see how the comb looks in the morning. I don't think the others will peck at her, since its super dark out, and they wouldn't be able to see it. So how do I keep the cat away? How do I treat the cut? And how do my parents and I talk to the neighbors about their darn cat?!
