I have 4, 8 week old hens with a coop and tractor run, if I put the chickens in the coop at night, do I need to put water and feed in there.
I have the feed and water out in the run and would take it up at night to keep the mice out of it. With the enclosed run would I still need to close them in at night? I'm thinking of added some heavier fence wire to the chicken wire that is already there for added protection.
I am currently bring them into my garage in a 2' x 4' box with a removable wire top at night and then take them out in the morning.
Any suggestions would be great.
