    From what I have read, a lot of people only have water in their run to keep the coop from getting wet. They have food available in the coop, but not sure about outside. I know a lot of people put down stuff for them to forage for.

    I only have food inside the coops because I don't have anywhere outside that it won't get rained on. I only have water inside during the winter, otherwise I leave it outside in the shade.

    I keep food and water inside the coop and also in the run. I have room in both places. At night, I bring in the food from the run and turn the waterer in the run upside down.
