"Chook Sitting" - Christmas Holiday break

chook sittingIs anyone interested in babysitting our three chickens over the Christmas Holiday break? If you would like to see if chickens would be suitable pets for your family, now is the chance. There are three beautiful hens (two bantams and a laying black hen) who need to be cared for over the holidays. If you are not going away, and have no other pets that might frighten the girls, this may suit you. We would provide food, grit, straw and water bottles for you to use. Hopefully you may have a secure cage/shed to house them in the evenings. If you are interested, could you please see Marianne so arrangements can be made as soon as possible. I am anxious to get them cared for by our school community and ensure they are safe and well cared for as we hope to increase the number of hens we have next year and increase community care of the chickens.
