We are looking for a house sitter to care for our parrots from 30 October until the 11 November. The main responsibility of the house carers would include looking after 4 Rainbow Lorikeets, 2 Scaley Breasted Lorikeets, 2 Green-cheeked Conures, 1 Blue Tongue and 2 Indian Ringnecks. We have a few wild birds in care including 1 Butcherbird which requires food. Sometimes wild Kookaburras also visit. Cleaning of cages and preparation of food requires approximately 1 hour per day. Beef or lamb hearts are required to be chopped up for birds that eat meat. Two dehumidifiers require emptying and starting again daily. The pool needs the sock changed every other day. The occasional clean-up of leaves on the terraces would also be nice.
We live in a pole home which overlooks rainforest, a creek and has a short bush walk within the grounds. The house is located 3 kilometres from Kuranda.
If you like outdoor living then you'll like this house. Must be a non-smoker.
