    OK, I know this is probably a stupid question, but, do I put the feeder and the waterer inside the coop itself or do I put them in the run? Thanks.

    Not a stupid question at all and people do both for various reasons.
    I keep water outside, especially in cold weather because of condensation and humidity in the coop. I do use a nipple system inside some of the buildings though.
    I keep bulk feeders inside so they can eat as soon as they come off the roost and also to limit the loss to wild birds.
