Our current coop is about 4' high and I have to walk in to reach anything, so it was a pain to fill feeders. So we rigged it so I have access from outside the coop. We're building a new coop that will be tall enough for me to walk into without stooping so I thought maybe outside access isn't so important with it. I'm afraid that making them accessible from outside will allow moisture to build up in the feeder somehow (although this has not happened on our current setup, in which the pvc goes into one of the nest boxes which have outside access). Also in order to make them accessible from outside we'll have to build something that sticks out of the side of the coop-it's enough that my hubby is building this new coop for me and he hates building stuff, so I hate to ask him to do any extras like this. Anyway what do you think?
