    Chicken Nipples

    Ditto to everything Gallo said, and to add- You are going to be so happy you put the nipples in there. My girls adjusted to it so quick and easy. The water is always clean. My only regret is I didnt' do it sooner!

    Feed and water: in or out?

    I keep my feed and water out. My hens use their hen house only for laying eggs and sleeping at night, the rest of their day they are in their run. I've never considered putting their feed in their coop since they are only sleeping in there..
