I have my premade coop ready to use. We made a 8 x 5 hoop coop to act as a run and will add to it for the winter. They free range all day. Currently I lock them into their temporary coop at night, which is inside a temporary run ( not Fort Knox like my hoop coop. If I put my coop inside the hoop coop (safe and strong ) do I need to still lock the coop? My ladies like to get out earlier than I can get outside. I figure the can move around in the hoop coop until I get the kids off to school and let them out all day. Does this work?
