    Some one is always home so refilling is not an issue but do not want to constantly do it. also i do not want so much out that the water and feed goes bad.
    should i feed in the coop so it stays dry and water inside and out?

    I am thinking two 3 gal waterers and 1 11lb feeder. Does that seem about right?

    I would do just one 5 gallon waterer and a 10 lb feeder, which is essentially the same as what you are thinking.... [​IMG]
