I was thinking of spending the night away from home. My chickens are in a coop with a very secure run around it. They have been in there for a year and we've had no preditor incidents at all. Not even evidence of digging around the run. So, I'm wondering how many of you would leave the chickens overnight? This would mean that they would be in their coop (they go in on their own when it gets dark) but with the pop door open (they are silkies and sleep practically IN the pop door just inside the coop). I have forgotten to close the pop door twice in the past year and it was fine. However, to intentionally leave it open all night when I am away seems like it may be irresponsible of me. I don't want to lock them in the coop for that period of time, so this is really my only option...other than just staying home.
