Hi. I need some opinions and expertise. I just got chickens and a coop. The coop is small with a little run. I plan to get them a tractor but for now I give them supervised "forage time". Lol Anyway, the interior is pretty small for these three hens. As such, they knock all their crap around. The previous owner used stainless steel dog dishes fopr both food and water. Well, as you can imagine, they get knocked around. The waterer is always full of bedding and everything is soaked everytime I go to change it. I looked at gravity fed waterers and am worried that they will take up too much space. I bought a small chick waterer which they knocked over. Their house has a sliding door which allows them out into the little run area. Is it ol to leave their water outside and leave their door open all the time (even in bad weather)? Is there a better waterer I can put inside? I am at a loss! I went to water them just now and again their coop was soaked. Poor girls were so thirsty! Thanks for any suggestions you may have. I want to do my best for them.
