We have gotten ourselves into a situation where we will be out of town from Saturday morning through Sunday night and we don't have anyone to look after our chickens. What would you do if you had to leave your chickens (36 of them) for 36 hours and they weren't going to be checked on during that time? Will they be okay? Their coop is really small and they are only in there to sleep. Leaving them in the coop the whole time is not an option. We have a 250 watt heat lamp on in there since the temperatures are so cold (high teens, with single digit wind chill). Normally I close the door after they've come out in the morning in order to keep them from laying in the nasty coop but with the cold, I've left the door open so that they have another place to go that is out of the wind. I usually feed them in the morning and check on them throughout the day. I know that I could leave enough food for them but our big concern is water. Thus far, we've been getting by without a warmer, since I've been around to check on it throughout the day. We realize that we are going to have to buy a warmer for the water before we go. What are our options for something that is big enough to keep enough water for them but also use a standard waterer? Anything else I should do? Obviously, these are unusual circumstances and we usually have help lined up for them. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
