HELP!!!! GOING ON VACATION, WHAT TO DO WITH MICE!! Empty HELP!!!! GOING ON VACATION, WHAT TO DO WITH MICE!!

Hello! I need a bit of help here.

My family and I are going on vacation to AZ in about 2-3 weeks, and I don't know what to do with my 3 female mice.

We are leaving on a Thursday and leaving on Monday (5 days, 4 nights)
This is how the schedule will look like:

Thursday: Feed them right before I leave.

Friday: ON VACATION

Saturday: ON VACATION

Sunday: ON VACATION

Monday: Come home and feed right when I come.

So basically, I will be gone for 3 days. Will they be fine with that? Should I just leave an extra food bowl? Don't worry about the water, I have 2 water bottles. Basically these are my questions:

1. Should I leave extra food?

2. Will they be fine if I leave the extra food?

Thanks, anything will help!!! Worry Worry Worry

I have been ok leaving the mice with a lot of food, but I would recommend having a friend check up on them.

I've done it before in a pinch, though I prefer to have someone come check in on them. It was fine. They didn't notice I had left. Laughing 

 They will need extra food, so get a large bowl and fill it up with more than you think they'll need. It's good to know how much they eat in a day beforehand. Get a backup water bottle in case one fails, bowls will dry out.

double their food, esp if they're picky eaters. make sure their water bottles are full.
typically, they'll be okay for a week or two on their own!

if you can, do have a friend check on them!

alternatively, you can get a relatively cheap small animal carrier (for reptiles, amphibians, etc), modify it for a water bottle, and bring them with you!
we use modified kritter keepers! the mini is $7, and the small is $12.
