We are extremely fortunate though that the 'children' are close at hand and 'take over', sharing the dog sitting, house sitting and the poultry.
Weekends are usually the time for the extra chores that don't get done during the week. Mucking out, buying feed, checking the electric fences, moving the arks etc. so when we know we are away these need to be fitted in during the previous week.
If we need to be away during the breeding season, hatching needs to be carefully planned so we don't have chicks hatching over a weekend and any chicks are at least a few days old, so we are confident they have found the heat and are eating and drinking well, before we leave.
I probably won't get the chance to 'blog' this weekend but will hopefully post and add photos to my Instagram and Facebook page Please do pop across and may be follow/like.
