Vacation Chicks...

If my broody hatch goes well (my first hatch!), I'll have baby chicks around the 17th of June. Unfortunately I go away for a week on vacation a week later. I'm trying to find someone who can come by my place and check on the babies/their mother daily; if not, I'll put the babies in a brooder and take them to a friend's place to stay for the week. BUT...will I be able to reintegrate them with their mother when I get back? Or is a week too long for them to be apart? I hate to end up having to brooder-raise them! Any thoughts? Anyone ever tried this?

Thanks! I don't want to split them up, but whew, a week seems like a long time-- I'll try to get a chicken sitter to swing by instead then. Fingers crossed I can find someone.
