Should I bring my feeders in at night?

It is not necessary to remove feeders and drinkers at night unless you are worried about rats, or if the weather is forecast to be particularly bad.  Very cold (freezing) weather can make plastic drinkers and feeders brittle, leading to breakages.

High winds and heavy rain can lead to wasted food and broken/damaged drinkers and feeders.  Your chickens do not require food or water in their coop overnight. It is important to remember to keep feeders and drinkers out of reach of wild birds and rodents at all times to reduce the risk of disease transmission.
