So we are getting our baby chicks on/around the 21st of April. We were so careful to discuss with or circle of friends if they would be willing to watch over our flock during our June vacation that we completely forgot we were planning on going out of town on Easter. I am worried about several things not the least of which would be leaving a heat lamp unattended in my home for any length of time. So, to my original question: A. Would you leave them in the care of a dear friend who would check in on them a few times during the day and double up with another friend to do the same if necessary? B. Would you take them with you? We do have a mini van so plenty of room in the back. Approximate trip is 2 hours. C. Would you bow out and let your spouse and child go and give your regrets on Easter Dinner due to your poor planning and idiocy? I'm such a dope.
