In the Brooder
- Apr 12, 2010
Opinions please: My coop is attached to my run, which is locked and predator-proof (*knocks on wood*). I lock my girls in the coop each night for added security. I am going out of town for 3 days and have a "farm-sitter" coming once a day to take care of all the animals. But she is coming in the early evenings. I hate to have her lock up the girls in the coop at like 5 p.m., especially when it's hot all day and still hot in the coop at that time. Dare I have the farm-sitter just leave the coop open so they can go in at their usual time? And, if so, will the girls feel "insecure" with their coop door being open all night? What do you all with predator-proof runs do? Thanks!
