We just went out of town for a 2 days and hired the 12 year old neighbor to feed and water our chickens (we have not family close to use to help). We also let him take home the eggs to enjoy with his family. However came home with to the chickens not being feed. Which I really upset about. The poor things went most of the day without any food and a small amount dirty water to drink. So how do you make sure your chickens are going to be feed and water when you go out of town. Do you trade care with other chicken owners? If so how do you find them? Do you just put extra water and food blocks? I need some ideas. We don't go out town much, but I want to make sure my girls are take care of when we do..
