We have a 2-year-old labradoodle, 2 guinea pigs, and three chickens. The chickens need food and water and egg gathering. The egg gathering involves letting the rooster and one hen loose into the backyard, then picking up the broody hen (who is very inert) and taking any new eggs out from under her. The guinea pigs require keeping their food, hay, and water dishes filled and their cages cleaned every other day (a quick job as we use mostly towelling). The dog must be in her crate when no one is home. We could do with someone coming over several times a day to let her out and play with her (and let the chickens out and close them up at night), but it would also be nice if we could find someone to spend the night. This is extra and not required. We do have a guest bedroom and the dog may sleep in the floor there with the carer.
