    I just built my new coop and run and i was just wandering should I keep food and water in the coop at night with them? I keep it in their now but thats because they had to stay in their coop for a week or two until all the new stuff was finished.

    Keeping your feed and water in the coop is just dandy, no problem. I think most people do this, I do and I have 65 chickens.

    I always keep thier feed and water inside, that way other preditors don't miss with my chicken's feed.

    Mine are inside the coop too. Used to have them on the floor, in the begining, but hung then as soon as I could. Works much better for me & they stay cleaner. [​IMG]

    I have my feeder and waterer
    hanging inside and it lets them know
    thats their space. and no critters can get to the feed.
    they play out in the run. also covered and safe from pests.
    and the rain or snow or the hot sun..mostly rain this month. LOL
