Hello, tomorrow I need to go to the city for about 12 hours and my baby chicks are about two and a half weeks...three on fri...I am ok with the feed...they are in the brooder in my home..and spoiled...I hold them and play with them everyday...but I usually give them fresh water in a saucer about every two hours. I have bowls and such, but don't want any accidents while I'm gone or them running out of water. Are they old enough to not drown if I put water in a bowl? They are very perky and they might tip it over...I just don't know what to do, but I need to go and the only way I can will be about 12 hours. One hour trip one way...I could take them with me, I'll be staying at my daughters, but it's a big ordeal to take the brooder and the chicks...she has dogs and a cat.. a loud husband and two teenage girls....and a small apartment. Any ideas?
