I lock mine up tight around dusk. Speaking of which, just found a neighbor's cat they keep in the "garage" stalking my girls. Just released my Germann on it. Git the kitty girl! Even during the day, have to keep watch for predators. Dog was out with them but never saw the cat until I showed her. Caught Lily sleeping on the job. Okay, gotta go look for my dog who is way to happy to go for a chase/run.
