Your chickens don’t mind being left locked in their coop for a night while you are away for the weekend.
For 2 -3 nights away, you may ask your neighbour to pop over to check the water, give some scraps and laying mash and to shift the coop to fresh ground.
Any longer than that and your chickens will start to miss you a lot. Your kind neighbours or family friends may offer to let your chickens out once a day and look after them in return for their fresh eggs.
As an alternative, City Chicks offers you the following service:
Holiday Care for your chickens!
We can look after your chickens by having them while you are away. They will be fed and watered until your return.
City Chicks clients only pay a small amount a day for up to 4 girls to come back and play with old friends. We will feed them, let them play, have snacks and scraps AND free range. Just email to see what availability is like.
Holiday periods get booked out early so let us know the dates as soon as you are wanting to holiday.
Please note_ the chickens MUST have been sold to you by City Chicks. I am sorry but we will not take chickens from other origins.
PRICE IS $13 A DAY FOR UP TO 4 CHICKENS. WE FEED AND PLAY WITH THE GIRLS.
