My hubby and I are leaving in a week for our first trip since we got our chickens. We've arranged for someone to come by twice a day to check on all the animals and feed and water them...especially the chickens. I just gave my BIL his first chicken care lesson last night. He's good with animals. He's taken care of our cats and dogs many times. Since we've added one rabbit, eight adult hens, and six chicks (seven weeks old when we'll be gone), we've more than trippled our number of animals. Anyway, I'm feeling like a mother that is leaving her baby for the first time. I'm freaking out. Any advice?
