Since I have a small 4x4 coop people have suggested that i keep the food and water outside in the run.

I really like the idea of a pvc feeder and nipple waterer. But the area we live in gets a lot of wind and heavy rain, I worry that the feeder will get full of water. How do i keep it dry?

In the winter the temps are in the single digits to teens. Which means the water will freeze without a heater. Is it ok to switch between a nipple waterer during warm weather and a standard galvanized heated waterer when it's freezing out?
