We are going camping during Memorial Day weekend (3 days). My chicks will be 5 weeks old. How can I leave them? Have a neighbor come by a few times a day? Hire a pet sitter? Will they be in the coop by then without a heat source? I wouldn't feel comfortable leaving a heat lamp on while I am away (garage brooder or coop). They are a few days old right now and in the garage. I check on them constantly since this is my first time raising chicks and I'm only a few days into the process. At the moment I'm having a hard time imagining leaving them. But I know 5 weeks is going to be much different that 2 days old. Thanks in advance for any help. I did a search and I found a similar question but the chicks were 8 weeks.
