Questions From You: Feral Cats and Chickens
Marshall Asked: Love the idea of keeping chickens in the city, but how do I deal with the huge amount of feral cats we have here in the central part of Phoenix where I live?
Greg’s Answer: Great question. I assume you are asking me if the cats will effect the chickens? I would say it depends. Typically an adult chicken is the same size as an adult cat and my two feral cats get along just fine with my chickens. I have never seen an issue with adult chickens and cats. The depends part comes if you are raising chickens from chicks. A cat will definitely take out a baby chicken. So just protect your chickens till they can do it on their own.
