Hi, Just wondering how long chicks can be left for? As in, if I were to go away over night would I be able to leave out plenty of food and water for them so they would be okay? They aren't going to be shut in over night, I shall leave them to range in there run... which is VERY VERY everything proof.. so shouldn't let anything in. But they will be able to enter there coop as well to nest. The foxes stear well clear since they have a run in with my dog last week and lost. Thanks Drew.
