Chicken sitting

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I have a small coop with 3 hens.  I'm going to Italy in April (hopefully).
Anyone have any ideas on how to find a chicken sitter?
I'm participating in a chicken coop tour next month so hope to network then with other chicken keepers.

I think your chicken tour is an excellent place to start!

ask a dog sitter if they would sit your chickens for you, some do branch out into other animal sitting not just dogs and cats. That might start some new well appriciated business,especially with people hurting for money. I had my mother in law watch mine for a week. Shes a good woman.

Teenagers in high school make good slaves. 
Call your local hs and ask them to recommend one who's looking for a job.

Breathes there a woman with soul so dead who never once looked up and said,
"Gee, what can I do for Joe Bryant today."

The best laid plans of mice and men go oft' awry.

Go to a feed store or tack store and put up an ad for some FFA or 4-H kids.  They're usually pretty good.

Or maybe find a snarky old neighbor guy who would volunteer his wife to do take care of things...

Give a starving man a fish, you are a friend.  Teach a starving man to fish, you are a mentor.  Talk to a starving man about needing a boat to fish, you are a consultant.

How about the next door neighbor?   They can collect the eggs for themselves while you are gone, as payment.  Or even here..maybe another BYC'er lives near you?
