Hey all, We have 2 month old white leghorns, 12 hens and 2 roos. Currently they are confined to a chicken run, but I'm wanting to let them roam. We also have a golden retriever who is inside when we are, and 5 outdoor cats, 3 males and 2 females. I'm not worried about the dog, he will listen and catches on quick... but I'm wondering at what age will the chickens not be a target for the cats? Or another question... at what age will the chickens be able to put up a fight with the cats? Currently the chickens are in the run protected with chicken wire... the cats just lay and watch them. Sometimes they watch behind rocks, and sometimes they sit right next to the chicken wire and watch. Usually there is always at least one cat out there watching them in the run. Thanks!
