    Looks like the farm kitty decided to try his hand at being a chicken!

    That is cute. Here is a question, do you have problems with your outside cat going after the chickens? We are getting chickens in a few weeks and have an outside cat (who became the outside cat after deciding my bed was the litter box on a couple of occasions).

    Hmm, I wonder what color eggs he will lay. lol Your cat looks similar to my cat. I was building my coop this weekend and took a break and my cat jumped into the nesting box too. She was checking everything out.

    We have had no problems with any of our three cats going after the chickens. From time to time we even throw our best mouser in the coop with the girls so that he can help control the mouse population. So your girls will be fine!

    Our cat barely even looks at them. He leaves them alone (even the chicks!).

    Your cat may be different though. I would introduce them slowly. If your cat shows any aggression towards the chickens, I would defiantly be cautious.
