Looking to visit family or friends in Boulder over Thanksgiving then look no further.

We live in a 4 bed renovated house in a mature neighborhood on a corner lot. The sub-division has a wonderful family atmosphere with some beautiful out lots to explore. All of our neighbors are very friendly. We are a short drive or bike ride from the Boulder Reservoir.

We are looking for someone who can take care of our chickens. Depending on the temperature they will require fresh water 2 times a day if it is below freezing, preparing their food 2 times a day (as early as 7:00am) and then removing all the food bowls every night just before it gets dark. Making sure everybody is accounted for and safely roosted. If it snows heavily we will need a small area cleared for them to enable them to move around the run (no serious shoveling).

We would also need the sidewalks around the house to be cleared if it snows but we have a cordless snow blower now that I treated myself to last year, ah bliss.

The garden will mostly be closed up but one or 2 beds may need venting during really sunny days. I have a greenhouse and usually that just involves checking that the pumps are running, raising and lowering the shutters in the am and pm, watering plants maybe a couple of times and feeding the fish. Again, nothing too strenuous and takes about 5 mins in the am and 5 mins in the pm.

Unfortunately, we don't have dogs or cats as we have allergy issues so prefer people who don't keep pets themselves.

We are non-smokers.

So if you fancy spending Thanksgiving with family and friends in Boulder send us a message.
