I have 30 chickens of several varieties- most brown egg layers. I live in a climate where it occasionally has hard frost in winter, but mostly just rain. The waterers never freeze. My question is- do I need to have water in the coop? My chickens have a 10x30 enclosed yard (which is mud this time of year) and are let out every day to a 5 acre pasture. I let them out when its fully light in the morning(around 8 am in winter- lots earlier in summer). Their coop is about 8x10 with 7 nest boxes .....plenty of roost room, but i'd like to eliminate any more moisture in the coop...i currently have a hanging 5 gal plastic waterer inside and it gets bumped alot. Would like to move it outside and have only their feeder and oystershell inside. I have a galvanized 5 gal waterer outside in their small pen also. Do you think i need to keep the inside waterer ? I also have 2 five gallon bucket nipple waterers outside but they do drip a little and i dont use them inside at all. What do you all think?
