need advice, we are leaving on a trip tomorrow for 4 days. my chicks are only 5 weeks old. they are in my bathroom too big for their thing they were in. i have 3 bigger chickens outside in coop but they are mean too the little ones. i dont want to put them out in the pen and section it off. i am afraid something might happen while we are gone. so again i say they are in my bathroom my sister said she would come once a day to feed them and clean the mess. and i mean there will prob be a big mess. do yall think they will be ok left inside? i didnt start taking them outside til about 2 or 3 weeks ago. please help me with this delima my husband is sick of hearing bout it.

If it were me I would leave them in the bathroom. There is no way I would chance something happening to them while u r gone if they aren't already out in the coop. Is there any way u can block off a part of the bathroom so that the mess isn't as bad? Can ur sister come like 2x a day? That would really cut down on the mess. Have they outgrown their brooder? Do u have some type of dog box or crate u could put in the bathroom temporarily? Just some suggestions.
