    We have an excellent house sitter who stays there, as we also have 3 dogs (which I oddly don't miss as much as the chickens) and he is wonderful. He makes sure they get their cabbage tetherball, their daily bucket of 6 grain scratch and he turns the heat lamp on at night and off during the day for my chicks. I'm sure he plays with them as well.... I trained him myself! (The house-sitter) So knowing they are well cared for is great...but I feel like a junkie without my "fix" when I can't have my chicken time!

    Oh how lucky you are....my house sitter, my sis in law moved to Seattle and my brother in law doesn't like pets very much so he feeds my zoo but not much else....so I'm looking for options since we want to be away for 3 weeks.....we shall see!

    My chicken sitter takes photos of my hens when she goes to visit and texts them to me. Usually with funny captions. Like "Really, mom gives us all the meal worms we want. You should go back and get us more, please!"

    It's the only thing that let's me enjoy my vacation. Otherwise, I just worry about my girls.
