So, we will be leaving for a two night weekend trip this next weekend. As of late, I've been checking the food and water daily (although it can a day or more before needing refreshing). I can have the neighbor little girl check on them for that. She'd probably like to make some money. My main concern is this--I don't have a finished coop yet, I have their run and their brooder box is out there that I close up at night when they get in it. I live in a warm area the temps are 85 day and 60 night. Can I just leave the box open in the run? They can put themselves to bed and get up whenever? We don't have any real predator problems, hawks and whatnot, but the run takes care of that. What say you, gang?
