Hi all! I'm a BYC newbie and also a newbie to raising chickens. This site has helped us tremendously before we took the chicken plunge and in those initial few weeks, not to mention helping us build a coop, etc. We have 6 pullets of various breeds that free-range during the day. We let them out of their coop/run (pop door still not made/installed yet, which so far is working out due to summer temps) in the morning and they roam around our property on their own all day, returning back to the coop by 7:30pm in their own. We lock the coop/run door at the end of the day. My girls are ~18 wks old (4 of them) and -12 wks old (other 2). We keep a waterer inside run that uses nipple system as well as a trigger feeder, also in the run. The girls use both, more frequently in early mornings or evenings... Occasionally, we see them returning to the run during the daytime to drink/feed. But they are usually outside, foraging and exploring. Lately, I've been noticing that as soon as they are let out in the morning, they will run out and start drinking from any water source they may find, whether it's a rain puddle on the driveway or standing water in an empty flower pot. Is this a sign that I should be providing additional water for them outside of the coop? For those who let their birds free-range, do you provide additional waterers elsewhere on your property?
