My barn cats share a water fount with the chickens during the winter. I only keep a heater on the chicken and horse tanks.
I've only had a couple of cats over the years that weren't chicken compatable. Those cats got culled from the rest pretty fast.
The chickens have a coop and run seperate from the horses. I do occasionally let the chickens out to scratch around the manure pile. The horses mostly ignore them.
My dogs are chicken killers so that's who I have to keep very seperate from each other.
