    Definitely not! A tent is a flimsy piece of fabric, it would in no way stop any type of predator. You need a solid coop made of wood or metal or plastic.

    I went camping with my dog once, he decided he needed to go potty, and so scratched his own dog door through the side of the tent in nothing flat. And yes, I was in the tent at the time.

    Point is....tents are not at all predator proof.....
