My sister will “babysit” just about anything.
I’m pretty sure she started babysitting as a teenager. I remember her watching a bird for a friend, and taking care of the horses up the road. Early in her married life they had dogs so she would watch friend’s dogs for them while they were on vacation. That naturally led to checking on people’s houses while they were gone – including my parent’s house and cat.
I think the latest thing she watched is the craziest.
It was a chicken. This was no ordinary check-the-coop-and-gather-the-eggs chicken. This chicken lived in a tote and was being raised for food. It’s name was Nugget.
While we were at my Mom’s house she brought it in from her vehicle to show my kids. The dog in the video lives with the chicken quite peacefully. She was watching the dog too.
Did I mention that she has 4 kids of her own? I think the only pet she has now is a rabbit. Hmm..maybe she has a good thing going. Watch a pet for a while. Show/Teach your kids about the animal. Send it home.
So if you need a home for your chicken while you are going on vacation I know a great sitter.
