I just moved my flock of six out of the brooder and into the coop a week and a half ago. They have been using their run for about a week and I don't know if I need to put the food and water outside during the daytime while they are in the run. As of right now, there is some lawn in their run and they are pecking at it all day long. The run is about 30'x12'. They are really sweet but not very smart and I can't tell if they are eating their crumbles or not. I have found them a couple of times in the coop, but they are always laying next to the pop door if they are inside. I want to make sure they are getting the nutrition that they need to be able to be great layers in a few months. Does anyone else put the food and water outside or do you have two sets of feeders and waterers? Thanks for the help. This is a great website and forum and has given us so much information since we are new to all of this!
