Chicken Sitting at Sunny SIde



This last week has been a busy one. My good friend over at the Sunny Side Bed and Breakfast went away on a much deserved vacation. She needed someone to look after her chickens while she was away. Luckily, I only live a few minutes away so I volunteered to chicken sit this week. Twice a day me and my kids went over there to take care of the chickens. In the morning I let them out, cleaned up the fertilizer...I mean poop, made sure they had fresh water and food. Savannah had fun playing on the kids 4 wheeler and Atlanta hung out in the swing. Every evening I would make sure the chickens were in their coop, collected the eggs and locked them in for the night. Since my chickens are not laying yet, I asked to keep the eggs as payment. She also bought me a 50lb bag of feed for my girls. I also got to chick sit as my friend is trying to get rid of 25 baby chickens. She brought them to my house and Savannah and I have had fun taking care of them. It is always so cute how children take such pride in taking care of animals. Every morning she asks if it is time to feed the baby chicks. It has been a very rainy week and every time it started to rain hard, Savannah would worry about the baby chicks. She is such a caring girl. Over all we had a wonderful week chicken sitting and it made me long for a life outside of the city.




* if anyone lives in the Tampa Bay area and is interested in buying any of these baby chicks, comment and let me know!!!
