I have seen several posts about people having their water outside the coop. I currently have a water system that will be shut down for the winter and was wondering about the pros and cons for having the water and/or food outside in the run area. I have had the food inside, but recently moved outside and they seem to be fairing well. I had a concern with outside critters getting into the food, but so far, i have not had an issue. My coop is pictured below, which is in the back yard surrounded by a 6 foot chain link fence.. so double protected! what is everyone else doing?
