That's a question that is opposite of what is usually asked. It's my chicks first night outside (9 weeks old) and they are in a temporary coop because we are moving in two weeks. I've got four t-posts in a rectangle with tiny square hardware wire mesh around the perimeter, attached with zip ties and I added chicken wire across the top, also attached with zip ties spaced approximately 4 inches apart. On three sides I've got chicken wire on the ground bending up the sides against the hardware wire, held down by rocks. On the forth side, I've got an uncovered 3' high dog pen that does not have a covered top. I put my Shih-Tzus out there thinking they could watch over the chicks and deter foxes and raccoons. However, now I'm thinking I may have painted a bullseye on my pups. Would a fox or raccoon attack my dogs in order to get to my chicks? Or worse, coyotes? I live in extreme north Georgia which is sparsely populated and very dense with forest. So, long story short, my question is - should I bring in my dogs for the night and will that kind of temporary coop be safe?
