My wife and I have a family thing 7 hours away and planned on being away 4 days. Here is the problem: 1. We have 4 chickens - two 6 week olds, one 4 week old, and one 2.5 week old 2. They still are coming into the house every night. They have not spent a night in the coop. 3. Someone can come by and check on them daily, but not at sunrise or sunset. Our concerns: 1. They will not put themselves to bed. 2. Tonight will be their first night sleeping in the coop. It's Tuesday. We leave Thursday. We aren't concerned with: 1. Food and Water - we have someone that can do that 2. Temperature - I'm in NC and it's in the late 70s at night. I didn't put the roosts up in the coop so the others would cuddle with the little one instead of roosting. 3. They spend everyday (dawn to dusk) in the 8x8 run and are super happy there. They have been doing this for over a week now. All of them including the little one. 4. The coop is inside the run. So, they have full access. My question is: Should my wife stay home with the chickens? This is an important trip and we can't take them with us. Our options are to pay a pet sitting service to put up the chickens or make my wife stay home.
