We will hopefully be getting chickens next week if we can get the coop finished this weekend. So I realized I should prob think about feeding them. Can anyone link me some good directions to make a feeder and a waterer? They need to be smallish/compact to take up less space in the coop. We would like 8 chickens so big enough for that many. Would it be a bad idea to build a small box off the coop (similar to a nest box) that I could put the feeder/waterer in? I like this idea but then only a few chickens could get food/water at one time. Other ideas would be really appreciated. Or if I end up buying something (there are 2 feed stores near me) what kinds are best and what should I avoid?
