    Hello, thinking about having chickens for eggs. Not sure it'll be worth the time and responsibility. I do like my 3 day weekends and a week away on occasion.:cool:

    I'm not sure how a form works. I'm real slow but I make lots of mistakes.

    Hello and welcome! If you are going away overnight, you will need to either have an automatic coop door or can just ask a willing neighbor to close the coop door and let them out in the morning. (Bribe them by saying they can keep any eggs they find ;)).
    There is lots of great information out there, just be aware that you will need to have someone take care of them while you're away!
