Position: Hobby farm temporary help
Organization: Applelane Farms
Location: Milton, Halton Region / GTA, Ontario

We want to go on vacation but we've gotten too many birds. We're looking for someone who would be interested in caring for our birds for a week or two. We have about 70 chickens plus a small flock of guinea fowl.

It's not a lot of work each day. Probably about 1-2 hours per day.

We're willing to talk about some financial compensation and also trading for chickens, chicks, fertile eggs or possibly guinea fowl keets. We have purebred black australorps, americaunas and can breed some interesting crosses of Easter eggers.

While we are away there will still be family members on the property. They just won't have time to take care of the birds.

If you are interested we'd be happy to talk.
