In the Brooder
- Jun 20, 2016
Our chickens are about 3 months old. I've been just filling up our chickens feeder any time its empty (usually twice a day). Their coop really isn't that big and we put their feeder and water in the coop at night. I feel like they might be kind of squished in there with their water and food and my question is if they really need them in there with them at night? We don't usually put them in until 830ish at night. So I'm wondering if it'd be ok if I stopped putting their food and water in the coop with them at night and just feed them when we let them out in the morning? Is that how most people do it? This is probably a stupid question but this is my first go at chicken raising. I've been thinking of it sort of like our dog I guess, we leave her water and food out for her at night...
