Should I put both in the coop at nite as well?? I was hoping to avoid this but feeling bad
Your thoughts are appreciated. Thanks
We have kept the food inside the box of our chicken tractors for protection from rain, and one thing we have used is a one gallon plastic bottle with a horizontal cut across maybe 1/3 of the bottom at the depth we want the food or water to come, then cut straight up to accomodate the chickens' necks and finish with a triangular shape at the top, but not cutting too close to the top of the bottle. The chickens can't scatter the food as well since they have to stick their heads in to eat, and when the food gets low we just knock out the residue to clean out before adding more food. Or for water we just dump out what is left and wash it a little with a brush before refilling.
