We will be going out of town for a week the end of October, we have had our 2 BO's for 10 days and they are getting pretty comfortable with us. I believe them to be about 4 months old, no eggs yet. My concern is this, we have been letting them free range all day, they go in the coop to roost at night and we let them out in the morning. We will have someone to come over to check on the girls, but, while we are gone, they will not be able to free range. Should we start shortening the amount of time they are free ranging out in the yard so it won't be too much of a shock to them when they are "cooped" up for a week? They do have a 6-8 ft run.
