My husband and I are new to raising chickens. 3 weeks ago we got 6 sweet baby chicks and had a coop built. We put it in a structure that we had intended to make the run. My husband wants to just lock up the chickens in the coop at night without securing the run with chicken wire and I am worried they will get eaten by something. The coop is well built, and appears secure with a couple of locks. We live in the woods on 3 acres. Does anyone let their chickens roam free during the day on their property while gone or have a coop without a run? I don't want anything to happen to them. Thanks in advance for any advice!
