Who's set up had the swimming pans set into the floor of a raised hutch style coop of hardware cloth? THAT is cool and secure looking.

You definitely want something covered and secure, their size makes them more readily grabbed by predators. Course I say that after a full sized 7 pound hen was taken down by a little hawk... she was literally scared to death, barely a scratch on her.

From my understanding they won't be able to fly from danger.
