We plan on taking a three or four day vacation this coming summer and not sure what to do with our chickens and ducks. We have eight chickens and two ducks that free range all day. Let them out early in the morning and put them away at night. Really don't want to keep them confined in their coop for a whole three or four days, we have my grandparents come check on our cats usually but now that we have chickens I'm not sure what to do. They can't come at night time due to poor vision so they wouldn't be able to lock them up at night or anything, plus it would be a burden for them to come twice a day. I have suggested paying our neighbors as they're very kind and would probably be willing by my parents say no and say we'll just leave them locked up and have my grandparents come by and give them food and water. Problem with this is that around the time we'll be away we hit highs of sometimes 115 degrees or higher and I fear for their health. Any suggestions? We have no other family to stop by except grandparents because the rest of us will be on vacation. We can trust the neighbors but my parents dont want to make them do it. Not sure of anyone else we can trust with them either.
