My 7 chicks have just moved out and I was wondering if they need food and water at night. Should I move the food and water to their sleeping space? ( right now its just outside of the coop) will they new the option of it at night?
Unless they have a heat lamp on them, they will sleep all night and will be fine with the food and water outside as long as they get out early. Chickens don't see well in the dark so they never get up to eat.
Whenever mine were under a heat lamp, they'd be up off and on all night. So if it's not a big hassle, I'd put food and water in with them so if they're up, they have access- water at the least. How old are they?
