    I'm going on vacation for a week and we have a house sitter coming to stay at the house. She is a good friend of mine and a college student, we are also paying her very well. I'm creating a schedule and an outline for her that details everything she needs to to.

    I am making her clean out and refill the ducks nasty pool water, but I was wondering about the chicken's poo board. Do you think that I should have her clean it every other day like I do? Or should I just let her leave it, and I'll give is a good clean when I get back. The board is filled with shavings and I just take a kitty scooper and scoop out the clumps, throw it into the run, and just add a couple more handfuls of shavings back on the board.

    Try leaving it for a few days and see how bad it does/does not get, then decide.
