Training cats to not eat chicks

training cats to not eat chicks

We like to let our new born chicks forage as soon as they can.

Sometimes one of our two cats gets interested in the small furry creatures and does something that looks like stalking.

Strider is the cute cat in the picture above, and we've only had to raise our voice a few times to get him to leave the chicks alone. I don't think it would be accurate to label that "training" because Strider just accepts orders like they're fact.
Huckleberry is a meatball?
Huckleberry on the other hand is one of those independent cats that ignores even the most simple request.

My recent conclusion is that training cats is an illusion. They either want to help or please you like Strider or act "Too cool for school" like our Huckleberry.

We've never lost any poultry to a cat attack, which might be because our cats balance out each other so well?
