The coop is made and I bought a 2 gallon waterer to hang under the hen house(which is two feet off the ground). The coop is 4x6 to house my 6 chickens(at least 1 is a rooster which I'd have to rehome). I'd get more chickens, but would limit myself to 8 at the most. The nesting box is exterior and I'll be putting up two roosts that will extend the full length of the coop(six feet), one higher than the other. I was considering saving even more space by putting the feeder outside too. The run is NOT predator proof so the chickens would be locked up for the night. How early would I have to let them out in the morning to get to their feed and water and how late would I have to lock them up? Would mounting the feeder under the coop be sufficient enough in keeping the feed dry in case of a rain storm? Thanks for your help!
