    On average how long can we leave our birds on their own? My hen and I want to travel some. Without any preditors around and with auto feed/water, is a week too long?

    Hello! I'd be a little scared to leave them for that long as they could go through their water and feed quickly. I think there are waterers and feeders that have a large container to the top of them that releases a little at a time??? Is it possible to have someone just check on them in the middle of the week?
