Hi Everyone. I have a small coop -- 5 feet long by 4 feet wide by about 2 feet high -- raised off the ground on legs. I have a ramp up to the door, which opens into a run of about 10 feet wide by 10 feet long by 4 feet high, surrounded by chicken wire and covered with clear plastic roofing. We lost a few chickens to disease and are left with two nice hardy ones. It has been our practice to close and latch the coop door every night for the chickens' safety. Once or twice it wasn't latched properly and they busted out into the run in the morning but nothing happened to them. My question is, does everyone think it's necessary for me to latch them in every night? The run is pretty well constructed, and while cats and hawks have come to stare hungrily at the chickens a few times, nothing has ever gotten in. We are going out of town for the weekend, and I'd have to find someone to let them in and out every day. I'd still like to have someone come check on them once or twice and make sure their water isn't frozen and get the eggs, but do you think they would otherwise be safe? Thanks.
