We're in northern California and have only had chickens for two weeks. We've been thinking of leaving the coop door open for convenience and poking around the interwebs it seems that if your run is as secure as your coop, then you can just leave the coop door open so they can come and go as they please. We're really not sure if ours is secure enough. We did go a bit crazy trying to make our run secure but not sure. I was hoping we could post some pictures of it to see what more experienced folks think. We put green wire fencing below the entire run and covered it with several inches of soil and attached it to the hardware cloth of the run with u-bolts on all sides except of course where the door to the run is. Where the door to the run is, we staked the green wire with three large stakes. The door fits over these fairly tightly. On the top of the run, which is in two pieces, we figured a raccoon could possibly fall through. So we stapled down more green wire fencing to kind of bond those two sections into one piece. The girls want out of the coop as soon as there's any light in the morning, which is getting earlier and earlier. Would be cool to just let them call the shots instead of being blocked on us getting out of bed. Are we right in assuming this is secure enough? One potential weak point we're worried about is the plastic/rubber hinges on the door. Not sure if something could/would chew through those. Thanks for any advice!
