I will be getting my first chicks in just about 1 week (!!!!!) but I just found out that both my partner and I will have to be out of town for the weekend of June 6th (when the peeps will be just about a month old). We have other pets and normally have our petsitter come in once per day to feed everyone and make sure they are all ok, but will the peeps be too young for just a once-a-day check? We could take them with us (just 5 chicks), but I'm not sure which would be more stressful for them, being home but only having someone come in once a day or travelling for 5 hours twice in a weekend. There is a chance that our petsitter could come by more than once, but it might not be possible. We would be out of town Thursday afternoon to Monday afternoon. I don't want anything to happen to the babies but I just don't know how self-sufficient they are at 1 month old.
