    Hi everyone,,,I'm new to chickens and the babies arrive in June! We're working diligently on the coop and run and have an important question. We plan on keeping the girls locked up at night. We are considering PVC feeders as seen on Pinterest. Should we have food and water sources both inside and outside the coop? The permanently installed PVC seem better suited to inside to discourage nighttime varmints. I need some feedback from the experts...thanks!

    They won't eat or drink in the dark, but they will be up looking for food and water at first light.
