I have had my chickens since June, and so far I have somehow managed to make sure I'm home every evening to lock them up in their coop on time. This evening we will be away from home very late, and I don't have anybody close available to lock them in. Although their run is very secure, I have no intention of underestimating the abilities of hungry predators, and I don't feel comfortable just leaving the popdoor open. Normally, the girls are in to bed right around dusk. We are leaving a few hours before dusk, so I am thinking about just putting them in their house and locking it up early tonight. It is a 4x8 coop, housing my 6 chickens. I feel it is better to be safe than sorry, but I don't know if my chickens will be in there early, freaking out, wondering why they are locked up when it is still light outside. Okay to do this?
