As some of you know, I got some chicks and have been building a chicken coop in my backyard. I started on Monday and have been building it on/off between work. It seems like every time I'm out there, a cat is watching. On the fence, on the roof, anywhere. On top of that, we hear cats fighting it out sometimes in the middle of the night. I know cats can be deadly to chickens, and I intend to let my chickens roam the yard during the day. If there's a cat that becomes a nuisance, what's the best way to kill it? I know some of you are animal lovers, but with a redneck like me, it's about protecting the livestock here... and if the cat is a stray, then I'm putting it out of it's misery. On top of that, it's a public nuisance to allow your animals to go into other people's yards, so I could even have the owners fined for the cats being in my yard... BUT I DON"T WANT TO BE "THAT" NEIGHBOR... you know, the one that everyone hates... the neighborhood nazi who is reporting broken down cars in someone's driveway to HOA or something. I just want the damn cats to leave my chickens alone when they're roaming the yard. What's the best way to do that? No, I'm not covering my yard with chicken wire. I'm thinking like a taser or something. Or a bow and arrows. I can't use my gun... it would make everyone call the cops when I fire it.
