I read about the predators that people are dealing with and it makes me worry about my new flock. Letting them free range is just not going to be possible here. We have 2 to 5 hawks at any given time circling overhead all day every day. Owls at night and two dogs that an owner will not enclose, and don't get me started on the coyotes. I would love to have them out in the yard but them getting eaten, even if I am out there, will happen for sure. My only hope is a tractor and even then, I will have to be present. We have thousands of ground squirrels and rabbits here and killing them will just put a small dent in the population. My question is, is it ok to keep them in the coop 24/7? It will give them a fighting chance to survive against the predators, but I want them to be happy too. Any thoughts?
