I have 7 older hens given to me by a neighbor about a year ago and just ordered 10 new chicks. Originally the chicks were supposed to ship after April 5th when we get back from vacation, but there was a mix up and they shipped yesterday. We leave at the end of March for 6 days. The chicks will only be 3 weeks old and I am very concerned about leaving them alone for a week. They will be kept in a separate coop placed in a barn. We may be able to get a neighbor to check on them, but will that be enough? Any suggestions?
