    my coop is pretty much fort knox. i don't worry about them much at night. they are almost old enough to let outside, in fact i have as long as i'm right there with them. i won't have any peace until i get the top covered in some fashion. i think, during the day, hawks are my primary threat. can i use something as lightweight as shade cloth to discourage hawks?
