    Hi
    I have come up with this idea of looking after people's chickens when they go on holiday.it seems like a good idea to me but I thought I'll put the idea out to you to see what you all think and to see if anyone would use me if they went away. I would only charge £1 per chicken a day.what do you all think of it please let me know.

    [​IMG] It would be interesting if folks listed their locations and availability for 'pet sitting'. I pay someone $35/day when the Princess and I are on vacation. She is insured and dependable.

    Hi :welcome

    Good idea but I would maybe do a set price for looking after them as flock. £1 per bird would cost me too much as I would also have to pay for the cats, dog and horse to be looked after on top of that. With my chicken hobby (oops addiction) the cost of care would out way going away!!

    Are you in the UK by any chance?

    Deep pockets and short arms? - I've heard that said about Yorkshire people as well, so maybe i should keep quiet [​IMG]
