I am considering building another decent sized coop in the spring for my chickens that would not have a run attached. I would like for them to have the coop to eat, drink, sleep and nest in and then be in the yard all day. Does this work very well? Currently, I have breeding pens with netting over the top so that nothing can bother them, but since I am not breeding them right now, they stay in the yard most of the time anyway. I am not having trouble with predators. I just think it would be easier on me to do this in the spring and the girls would be happy too! I just need input if you all think this will work?
