    Hi I am new to this forum although I have been reading it and keeping chickens for at least a decade. Now that we are retired my husband and Iike to take off for a few days or a week once in a while. Our chickens are in a mostly self care set up but the eggs need to be gathered and just eyes on them to make sure nothing unusual has happened. Anyone out there interested in trading hen watching?

    Welcome to BYC!
    I'm a bit far out for such a swap, but do know there is quite the "urban coop" movement in PDX so hopefully it won't take too long to find someone near enough to be able to take you up on this. Have you tried asking at the place you get your feed and other supplies at - whether a staff person themselves might be the right fit for what you are looking for or if they might be able to help you network with some others in your more immediate area who also keeps birds and might be looking for the same sort of flexibility? Do you have any neighbors that could pop over - especially a neighbor child who might, with mom/dad's help, be looking for a chance to experience chicken keeping on a temporary basis?
