I want to close the hens in each night especially the first couple of weeks. Wife wants to just leave the coop door open so they can go in and out as they please to the run so we dont have to worry about closing them in at night or letting them out in the morning. The coop and run are built within a chain linked yard that is patrolled by an Akita so i have no worries about skunks or coons etc getting to the coop/run before the Akita gets them. We have the run covered with netting so hawks arent a problem either. Anyhow give me your opinions! Thanks!
