I thought I had someone to brood out some chicks for me, but that looks like it has fallen through. My issue for doing it myself is 2 trips this spring. The first will be the latter half of next week for 4 days. The second will be for a week at the beginning of May. If I was to bring home some babies today, could they be left for 2 days (my mom checks on the other animals halfway through usually)? If I picked some of the older chicks from the bin, would they be outside in the coop in 4ish weeks? I'm in the Deep South here, so I don't really think the temperature will be an issue by then. Our TSC says that this is their last week for getting them in, otherwise I'd wait for after the first trip. So part 1: are they ok to be left alone for 2 days (with enough food and water obviously) at a young age? Part 2: if I grab some of the older looking birds, will they be outside by May? How about if they only have the tiny ones available?
