I'm new at this... I am trying trouble shoot for November when I am planning on taking a vacation. I will have neighbors looking after my mini-flock but am concerned if they miss a day collecting eggs. I don't want my girls to start eating their eggs or sitting on crushed ones. I have automated pretty much everything else ( food/water). I would be happiest if my neighbors only had to make sure the girls were alive. (I'm planning on installing a web camera in the coop too.) Any thoughts on how to get them to stop or slow down? Am I being a kook? Thanks.
