    How many here have a feeder in the run and how did you weatherproof it? I have room in the coop for a smaller feeder but would like to give the girls the little bit of extra room. Being in the snow belt gotta worry about snow and rain quite a bit. What are some of your tips tricks and ideas to weatherproof your feeders.

    I feed in the coop, and roofed the run in 2015. It's wonderful!!! No rain or snow, and feed can be out there too. Mary

    I covered a section of my run. Works great. Keeps feed dry and gives the chickens a place to go outside in inclimate weather.
