I am new to this wonderful forum!!!! I appreciate the support and community that I see here!!! My DH and I were looking into getting a small flock of baby chicks this Spring. My DH and I travel...anywhere form 1-4 nights once or twice a month. My question is...what do you do with your chickens when you travel? Can you have chickens and leave them for the weekend? How old do they need to be before you leave them? How do you prepare their coop for times that you will be away? We are new to the country...we don't really know anyone well enough to ask them to look in on the flock. Sorry for all the questions...but I want to make sure that we can take care of them the way they need to be cared for...before we make the purchase and commitment! Thanks!!!!
