    I've read that it is best to keep feed and water out of the coop. They will have it out in the run the only time it will not be accessible will be at night. Thoughts and go!!!!

    Thats perfectly fine as long as you are 100% committed to letting them out at daybreak. If not, then it maybe best to keep water in the coop, at least (or get an automatic pop door).
