I have read lots of threads on here about putting your chicks into the coop at night and I was wondering if that is a MUST? I have a coop and run/yard that all the chickens go into at night but many of them seem to prefer to roost in the high roosts of the run rather than going into the coop. I know it is hot here right now and I do have ventilation but they stay in the run. Is this a bad thing? The run pictured has hardware cloth all the way up with additional welded wire to about 4 ft. The entire thing has a 24" skirt that is buried. I have had no attempted attacks on the coop/run at night (did find some coon prints) but have had 2 attacks during the day by dogs... one successful where the dog pulled the plywood off the coop- reinforced with 2x4 and 2x6 for his next attempt which ended in defeat. So my question is.... do I have to run them into the coop at night or is the run/yard okay?
