Totally new to this forum and to chickens, doing my research now to get some chickens for eggs after the winter. I am doing this at a community garden down the road, so for me to go to it every day will be hard to do. -Can I set up water and food for a 2-3 days and let them go in and out of the coop as they please? -Will they use the coop or do you have to heard them in? -Will they go into the coop to lay eggs as often? I have a fenced off area it has 6 foot fencing, I plan to add a roof and a small coop for two chickens.
