    Checking to see if there are any BYC members in our area who might be interested in forming a sort of "co-op" for chickie care while another member is on vacation? I'm thinking that something like this must exist already, but haven't found it yet.

    We live 30 min. north of Raleigh. We'd be happy to "chickie sit" for others in our area, and are looking for someone do so the same for us when we're gone this summer for a week.

    I'd be interested but I'm out in the mountains.

    Great idea! I'm afraid I may never go on vacation again.

    We appreciate the feedback. This trip, we were able to set them up on auto feeder & waterer, with a cpl of relatives to stop by periodically to look at them. Main problem is that they'll have several days stuck in the coop unable to free range.
