Chicken, rabbit and house sitter
We are off on our hols for two weeks and need someone reliable, clean, tidy and trustworthy to look after our two lovely much loved elderly house rabbits and our three chooks in our quiet cottage in a lovely village. Our rabbits and chooks are used to having someone around frequently during the day. They are good entertainers! We would ideally like someone who has some experience of caring or sitting for rabbits and knows a bit about what to look for if they are not well. The same applies to chickens. But we will also give some tips and will be easily contactable while away.
Our Home & Location
We live in a cottage in a village with a lovely garden at the front and a small garden with decking that overlooks fields at the back. The neighbours are really friendy and happy to help you. You will need a car but Southampton, Winchester, Fareham and Hedge End are easily accessed from here. It is quiet and secluded but near to places and there is a pub that does good food within walking distance.
Responsibilities & Pets
Feeding the rabbits 3 times a day and providing company plus cleaning their litter tray and keeping their area clean and hay and water changed/ topped up. They will also need picking up every day to check their bottoms. The chickens need letting out of their coop in the mornings and feeding, then letting them out to freerange and putting them back before dark and shutting up in coop at night.
