Since i am getting chicks and i am gone for about half the day , i want to know if leaving them alone is bad. That is my biggest question.
Yup, we only look at ours twice a day most days, too--just to check on the feed and water dishes. I've never lost a chick (that wasn't already "off" when it came from the hatchery).What they said. Most of us work and are gone most of the day. When I'm brooding chicks, I check on them twice a day most days. I have very low mortality rates.
