I see alot of quesstions about whether or not to hang feeders/waters and also read recently that some people feed the chickens like on a schedule...morning and afternoon feedings BUT I am wondering if its a good idea to keep feeders inside because of critters trying to get the food. The doors are open during the day I sometimes get snakes, squirrels and mice and don't want any one to be hiding inside when I shut the doors. Doesn't anyone else get visitors to their food? I usually keep the food out side of the coop and put the feeders inside an empty can at night. There are so many different opinions Maybe there isn't just one "right" way??
