    This may sound crazy but what does everyone here do when vacation time comes around?? What to do with your chickens??!! There are pet sitters around but I've not heard of anyone caring for your chickens. My husband is up for a promotion and thus may very likely have to travel to NYC for at least a couple weeks and I DO NOT want to stay behind!! However, what do I do with my two little chickens?? I'd be indebted if anyone had any good ideas!! I have NO relatives or anyone who can move in here and care for them. My MIL would be the only prospect but knows nothing about caring for chickens therefore I'd be a wreck the whole time!! I just don't know what I'd do with them. I hate to miss out on this opportunity though??!! Again, any suggestions would be appreciated!! I'm in Riverview, Florida btw, in case there are any chicken sitters in the area!! Sigh....

    My neighbor will be caring for my flock while I am away on vacay. Maybe you could ask a neighbor.
