One enclosed run, but 2 seperate coops...

Will it work to have one run that the chickens share, but 2 different coops for them to sleep
in at night? Or will they not coexist peacefully like that. I would love to open up both runs
to make one big run because one is awfully small, but I don't have room to put all the
chickens in one coop. The one big run would be about 300 sq. feet for about 4 standards and
9 bantams. Right now I have the 4 standards in one coop and 3 bantams in another plus 6
bantams on the way.
It will work. I had the same thing until a fox got 3 of my hens. They will choose which one to sleep in and that will be their coop. I had 5 in one and 1 in They shared the same run and coexisted together just fine.
