    Hi! New here and hoping to move my 4 girls into their new home today! Question, would you put their feeder/waterer inside the henouse or in the run, or both? I was hinking of putting their food and a smaller waterer in the henhouse, and putting a bigger waterer in the run. Ideas?

    Thanks, Meredith

    That you choice mostly but if you do a search you will see this is a commonly talked about topic. I put water inside and outside food is inside and they get treats and goodies thrown out in there pen.

    Me too. I keep a big waterer outside, and one inside, but keep the feeder inside, partly because I'm unwilling to feed my expensive organic layer to sparrows, doves and other birds. If your coop is big enough, I think this is your best bet.
