Ruffles Hen Visiting Service

Kingsdon

About this listing

As lifelong animal owner and very experienced house and animal sitter I’ve looked after many hens over the years, including my own and will always ensure that your ladies (and gents if you have any) are given the same kind of care I would expect to give my own hens. I enable you to go away confident that your feathered friends will be loved and cared for during your absence so you can relax and enjoy your trip. If you have other furry and/or hooved friends I’m very happy to ensure they too are given the highest quality care.

In the photos you can see my own half dozen hens that I had some years ago – 2 Araucanas, 2 Araucana/Black Rock crosses and 2 adorable Speckled Sussex ladies. I loved the variety in eggs, the colours of their shells were so pretty. I currently have 3 ex-coms (ex commercial) ladies who are growing in confidence every day and keep going with a regular supply of eggs.

Cleaning practices

When you book me to take care of your hens I will arrange a visit to meet you and your ladies (and gents if you have them) so you can show me your daily routine so that I can ensure continuity of care during your absence. If there are any treatments required I will ensure I know how you prefer these to be administered, and your preferred options should anything require further attention while you're away. If you have any other pets you'd like me to provide care for I'm more than happy to do this.

Terms & rules

  • Additional rules information
  • If you live within 3 miles of my home I don't charge extra for fuel, if you live further afield I will need to factor in a fuel cost. This will be based on the current mileage allowance of 45pence per mile which will be split if I am visiting more than one client on any one day. I do ask for 48hrs notice of a cancellation or change to your travel plans or I will request payment of up to the first 2 nights booked.
