I cannot believe I left them in their coop all day no food or water.
How bad is it for the hens to go the whole day without any food or water. I have fed them now and given them loads of water but is it bad for them?
Glad to hear they are well :) I have food and water inside the coop and water outside in the run, I don't wake up early and since they have a large coop I know they are perfectly okay spending some of the morning inside the coop. On rainy days I tend to keep them in the coop all the time b/c I don't want rain coming into the coop floor.
