I'd checked sittercity.com a while back wondering if we could get chicken-knowledgeable sitters for vacations. We've used a petsitter for our cats for years but I doubted we'd find poultry sitters. But they were there! I think you can search by type of animals and read people's bios and experience. This is what I plan on using for our getaways. I like our yard and all, but nothing compares to a Caribbean escape when it's chilly and gray for months here.
