genuinely knew and loved chickens
I’ve just got back from holiday, and Simone was House sitting and most importantly, looking after my precious flock. As you may recall it’s a fairly complicated sit, in as much as a. There are some fairly complex medication and care needs and b. I’m pretty neurotic about them.
I have to say Simone was amazing; I asked you for someone who genuinely knew and loved chickens not just someone to let them in and out and chuck food at them. And boy, she really does – and she loves wildlife too. I felt confident with her from the start. She combined a really good knowledge of chickens, chicken health with a real love and affection for them. She kept in touch throughout my holiday; sent me vids and pics and updates which meant I didn’t feel so far away from them; and she went above and beyond – cooking them treats and spending time with them; cleaning out their coops and she even picked some flowers and made some food for us for our return – and stripped and washed her bed. I was pretty gobsmacked.

It really was the first holiday away where I’ve actually felt able to relax and not wanted to come home early – and I’ve used House sitters before!
