There is a certain amount of responsibility that belongs to us once we decide to keep and look after any being - human, animal, whatever. Take the necessary responsibility to see to it that the chickens are looked after and protected while you are away. Whether this means planning well in advance to provide a secure solution before you make plans, or asking someone to look after them, this is what is required of us when we decide to embark on this journey. If you are feeling guilty, then do something to make it feel right. Whatever that is.So I’m leaving for about a week. Will it be ok to keep my run door open at night because I don’t want to leave my chickens in their coop for that long?
