I'm sure this has been asked 1000 times before, and I know the general answer so I'll give you my situation. We should be getting our baby chicks the first week of April. We were hoping to take a vacation around the end of May/Beginning of June. Our next door neighbor has had chickens for a long time and offered to take care of them while we are away. The coop is built and is ready to go for when they are, I was just wondering if the time frame for them being ready to go outside would work with when we are looking to go away. And if not, would it be extremely stressful to transfer the birds to a brooder setup that he has in one of his sheds?
