Absolutely! Put out extra food and water before you go. I would go with already growing pullets without a heat lamp for your first batch. Chicks are an adventure in and of itself. Full grown hens are easy to lie about age and even easier for you to get ripped off with (personal experience). Basically all the common breeds are friendly. If I had to recommend a few:bmt123 said:Hi!
I am new to chickens and was wondering about a few things!
Can we leave the chickens alone if we are going away for the weekend?
Should we get baby chicks or full grown hens?
What is a freindly egg laying breed?
