Hello, I have been reading all the post here for several months. I have gathered some great info. on building and preparing the coop. The chicks are 8 - 9 weeks old now and looking good. My question(s) are how many days can go between egg collecting, since I can not get up to the farm everyday ? Would 4 to 5 days be to long ? I really need a long term waterer also. The feed is not a problem I have a 100 lb. feeder. I purchased a 5 gallon waterer. I have 8 chicks. I assume I will have to get hide of a couple, multiple roosters ? The enclosure is 10'X10' - 6' tall chainlink. Welded wire bottom and top. Thanks for any info./advice.
