I just moved my 7 week old pullets out to the coop. I have a hen house that has a light bulb on to give them a little bit of heat - which I will be slowly weaning them off. My question is about feed. In the brooder, I had food and water at all times and they ate even late at night. In the coop I keep the feed and water in the hen run. Should I also have feed and water in the hen house? I close the door at night for warmth and protection. So if I don't put it in they won't have access to water or food until I open the door in the morning.
