    Both, Find a dry spot outside for the food and definatley put it it at night, however make sure the water is not to deep, because they sometimes lie in it and drown, especially if they cannot see because its dark,( or are you putting a light in?)
    Make sure that the bedding is cosy and they can huddle together and keep warm.
    Good luck

    Wood shavings is fine. You can put food both inside and outside if you wish but I'd just do one feeder, it's less to mess with. Water though, I tend to kind of put everywhere.
