I bought a pre fab coop from ware, the chick n cabin and am struggling on a good spot to place the 24" metal feeder with holes and the water dish. The only place I could fit the feeder was in the upper enclosed space adjacent to the optional nesting box that hangs on the outside. I bought a plastic cup that I attached through the wire mesh on the upper platform next to the roosting bars. There really arent any other locations i can reach or wont be pooped in. I built and attached a seven foot run. I have added very little feed to the trough though they did clean out all vegetation in the run. It also has been raining alot. Can they not be eating because the enclosed spot is fairly dark? I could add a trough to the pen each morning but that will be a real act of contortion. Need some dvice for a newbie please.
