I've been keeping my feeder and waterer inside the coup but also have a water source outside in their run and yard. I'm getting an automatic waterer due to the mess the girls make - should I install it inside their coup or out in their run. The door is shut at dusk and opens at first day light. Thanks in advance!

I would put an automatic waterer outside in the run. I have one and it still drips when they drink from it. You don't want that inside your coop. I keep feed inside so it doesn't get wet and moldy.

I keep the food inside to keep it dry and away from wandering songbirds. I keep the water outside so that any mess falls on the soil and not inside the coop.
