We have Welsummers and EEs in a mega run/coop that is completely covered on every side and the top is covered plus their coop attached. They get sealed in at night to protect from predators. Our ducks are free range all day and then get locked in a separate coop/box at night in that same enclosure. But - my husband brought home silkies. I'd like to keep them nearer to the house, like in our garden. I was going to put up a fence and then it would be house walls on the other three sides. I would also have a nestbox and coop that is locked up at night (coyotes, raccoons, opossums are out at night.) but there would technically be no roof on the run during the day. Is this crazy for silkies? I feel like I am protecting them less than the other chickens, but I also think maybe I went overboard with the other chickens. Thoughts?
