In the Brooder
- May 3, 2015
I have 6 week old chicks. They are in a coop within an enclosed and covered run but I let them free range as long as I'm with them. So far I have been keeping food inside the coop and the run. But I'm wondering if it's necessary. I let them out into the run every morning at 6:30 (I'm trying to find an automatic coop door to fit my opening) and they always run straight to the water - but I had read no water in coop. So I don't want to take their food if they need it - but I want to set up a grandpa feeder in the run eventually. So I guess my question is can I stop feeding them in the coop or do they still need it?
