    my coop/run has limited human access. the roof of the coop opens and i can reach in through the door to the yard of the pen. the bottom of the pen is open so the other option is to lift the pen and grab what i need. my issue is with the waterer. right now, im lifting the lid of the coop and pushing it in to the yard of the pen through the coop door.... id really like something i can put on the far end of the pen and fill from outside the pen. any ideas? ive got the food covered... i use a paper funnel through the chicken wire to get it in the bowl...

    You might be able to use a bowl and a watering can with a narrow snout, but the bowl would still need to be pulled out for cleaning, as needed.
