I've seen mixed suggestions so was wondering what everyone's reasons were. Should I provide feed and water inside the coop or outside? My coop door will be on a timer so I guess this will also dictate if the door stays open throughout the day or closes after the chickens leave. Right now, I was thinking about water both inside and outside, but feed only inside. I would set the timer to leave the doors open for a couple of hours in the AM and open a couple of hours before sunset in the PM. I was hoping this would limit other things getting at the food and also encourage all birds back into the coop in the PM since they would only be foraging throughout the day (they'll have plenty of foraging room..about 1/2 acre). What's everyone's thoughts on this plan?
