    I've been looking to have a live-in Nanny/housekeeper for quite a while now, who will watch my kids and animals on 2 days per week, in exchange for free rent (Saturday and Monday, while Hubby and I are at work), but have not found anyone who "fits our family". (On several occasions, when prospective roomies see my "fuzzy Seven" in the yard,they get a funny look on their face, and basically run off. So, I thought I'd see if any of my chicken friends on BYC have a relative or friends who goes to
    Chattahoochee Tech (Paulding Co. Campus), which is 5 minutes from our house.
    We are offering a really nice, brandnew, furnished room with adjoining bath (room overlooks green backyard and our brandnew chicken coop;)), rent free, in exchange for 2 days of child- and animal care (so far, 7 chickens and 2 cats, but working on getting 2 goats, as well...).
    I'm just going to put this out there, and we'll see if anything happens!

    Have you posted an ad at the college? There might even be an early childhood education major that would fit.

    Quote:Yep, I posted one 6 months ago, and an Early-Childhood-Ed student inquired about the room. She came by, loved the room, loved my kids even more, then saw Chuck, our rooster, strutting his stuff in the front yard (when I saw THAT LOOK on her face, I already knew...[​IMG]), and we never heard from her again. My hubby's niece came to see the room, too, and then asked me, if I'd consider "keeping the chickens penned up".[​IMG]
    Come on, chicken people!!! Send me some student relatives, who love chickens, and perhaps even wouldn't mind helping me milk my goats, once I get them!!!!!

    Who knew a few chickens and a rooster would be such a biggie? [​IMG] I hope you find just the right match!

    I hope you find someone... I will be looking at some point myself, but I think I will look for a vet student here that needs a place for the summer!

    That's a great deal. Kids today amaze me. I'd jump at that in a minute.
    How old are your kids?
