    My girls are new here the first couple days they were outside all day then in to sleep now I have noticed they spend way too much time inside. All their food and water is outside fully fenced 8x8 run. Lots of room for the. 6 hens. They come out and i fill their feeder and scatter left over veggies then back inside???

    Are you heating the coop? Also, of you post photos of your coop and run, it will help people make recommendations.
