Hi, I just joined this forum because my husband and I are going to be moving into a house in Portland, OR in a few weeks that has an awesome chicken coop and 10 chickens in the backyard (being left behind for us). We've never had chickens (though we've wanted to for a while) and I know we have a lot of research to do. But I have a few immediate (and very naive, I know) questions that I thought someone out there might be able to help me with. 1- We'll be arriving about 48 hours after the current owners vacate. Will the chickens be okay for this time with no attention? I assume you have to give them food and water every day... 2- Is there anything we can do, or shouldn't do, in the first few days to get the chickens used to us? Do they attach themselves to people in such a way that they will be distraught at their owner's absence? thanks!!!
