At night I have been leaving the coop chicken door open to the run so they can come out when they want in the morning. Now I am second guessing the safety of this. My thinking was that it would allow my 2 girls who are timid and low on the totem pole to get away from the more dominant girls. It opens to a very secure run, but I am now thinking that if a predator were able to somehow get into the run they would have free access to my sleeping babies. What does BYC say about this? My husband thinks I am worrying unnecessarily. Of course, he built th coop & run and thinks he created Fort Knox, lol.
