    My girls are 8 weeks old and living in the coop and run full time. When they were in the brooder they had food and water 24/7. Of course, they also had light 24/7 so "night" had no meaning to them. Now that they go into the coop at night, and sleep in the dark, I have been leaving the food and water in the run. I just wanted to ask if that is okay at their age. They don't still need to eat all night, do they?
