Thank you so much! This is definitely a stressful enough trip to get ready for without worrying about the chickies. But, I FOUND SOMEONE TO CHICKEN-SIT!!!!!!! Pretty much the last elderly man in the neighborhood that I hadn't asked yet He seems pretty excited. We talked this morning and he kept asking how he should put the chickens in the coop...no, they will go by themselves. But how do they get up there? They climb the ladder. So how do I catch them? LOL I originally thought the $150 or however much the pullet shut door is wasn't worth the price, but I am really having second thoughts now! That piece of mind is worth A LOT. Thanks for the support, everyone!
