I will be leaving for about a week in Nov. I have an automatic feeder and waterer which will keep them fed and watered. THey are laying 9 to 10 eggs a day I have 8 nest boxes for 11 chickens. If I don't have someone come and collect the eggs what are the odds they'll start eating them. I was planning on having someone come over once during about 3 days in to collect eggs. But don't think I'll be able to have someone come each day. I know it depends of the chickens, but I'd like advice from those who have went on vacation. I have some barred rock mixes, EE mixes, production reds and a speckled sussex.
