And yes, the luxury of having a place to store that much is a...
These places will be closest to Evanston, but still not accessible unless you are driving.
My local feedstore does - it is decent hay, and priced over what a grower might ask. But that is to be expected.

Making sure I have barn full of hay before the last cutting is done.
Accomplished by the middle of July.

Your proposed fee scale 1 & 2 is pretty close to what I'm paying for a farmsitter to come 2X daily, feed hay, grain w/supplements (morning only), refill water (no scrubbing buckets) & pick stalls.

Ducks are also messier than chickens.
Larger, "greasier" poop piles everywhere.
And if you have drakes, they are the rapists of the poultry world, making roosters look like gentlemen in...
Not saying there is not a real problem, but:
I feed at around 7A.
By the time I am finished with chores and ready to go back to the house - generally before 8A - I check & usually horses are done...
