Time is something that I do not have much of lately, I keep up with reading the post, but usually to tired at night to even think about commenting....I get cranky when tired..
The yard is full of dandelions, give me some day idea's besides just feeding to the bunnies... nothing to involved.
FYI, when I saw Rose the other day she was still talking about bunnies.... Do you have any you are selling for meat yet? I have a friend who was interested.

I don't keep my feeders in the coop, only because I find they don't eat enough when I have, but, to each, his own.
Best view in the world:
Awesome! I'm surprised you have any grass left though!

I've been around farms & animals my entire life & wanted to be a vet when I was a kid. It's accumulated knowledge & a lot of it applies to poultry as well as other animals. So I guess you could say, I have 40 years experience with animals & 4+ specific to poultry. (Plus I do a lot of research.)
I try to avoid food & water in the coop whenever possible. It's just not worth the mess. I don't have time or money for the wasted feed, wet bedding, & having to constantly clean it all up to avoid feed & bedding getting moldy & birds getting sick or dying.
I don't leave food or water in my coop at night either. My girls free range all day (as much as you can in a fenced in yard) and only go in the coop during the day to lay.
