With the long days, my chickens have been spending their evenings until 7:30pm or 8pm out in the chicken yard. And then they start making noise (too much noise for the neighbors I fear) around 5:45am, so I let them out. Someone told me I shouldn't let them out that early because of foxes. I don't even know if we have foxes around here (SF East Bay). Just want to make sure I'm not putting chickens in harms way just to keep their screaming down in the mornings. Clearly they're the bosses around here.
