We recently let our chickens out to free range. Everything has been going well, they go back home at night to sleep. However, one day we were gone till dark and came back to find them roosting 10-15 ft up in the tree above their coop. I let them stay there since it was dark and they were already asleep. That got me to thinking, I wonder if they are safer up in the tree at night? We do have have hawks and owls but they are much smaller than my Easter Eggers (the hawks are half the size of the chickens). Foxes couldn't get them up in the trees. We do have raccoons but if a raccoon tried to grab a chicken it could get away being up in a tree rather than in a coop where it doesn't have anywhere to go. Thoughts?
