There's someone in my area (Seattle) who's got chicks available now for a reasonable price. I wasn't planning on getting any until Ideal starts hatching out the rare breeds in Feb, but... I'd love to get a head start so I have layers sooner than June or July. The trouble is, four days of the week I work away from home and leave the house at 5:30am, arriving home again around 7:30 or 8pm. My questions is whether they would get enough care if I just check on them before I leave and once I get home, plus before I head to bed around 11? They would be in a nice room that's attached to the house but has its own entrance and would have plenty of space, several feeders and waterers, and a couple of heat lamps so there would be room to spread out. The other three days of the week I'm at home and can spend plenty of time with them. Thoughts? Thanks!
