    Okay, so I am going camping for 3 days (2 nights), and do not have anyone to come check on my chickens! [​IMG]

    I figured I can leave a BIG feeder full of food, BIG water jug.. What else should I do before I leave them? [​IMG]

    Security around my coop is "okay" but I am in the city and not many predators around beside occasional opossum.... (thats what I fear)... [​IMG]

    Any other suggestions?? I am leaving for the feed store soon so I need responses and suggestions as soon as possible! [​IMG]

    Thanks BYC'ers!! [​IMG]

    I would put TWO things of water at least. Maybe even three. and maybe more than one feed container.
  3. I wouldn't suggest much other foods than their main feed. Some people like to keep veggies around the coop to keep their birds busy and happy but I think that would hinder you more than help you. The more food you have, the more 'visitors' you'll get. You really don't want predators while you aren't there.

    Have fun! [​IMG]
