Maybe someone can advise me on the best way/worst way to move a flock about 30 miles on the freeway. I'll be moving their coop too, and all my trailer logistics are solved, it's the birds themselves I wonder about. Can I just keep them in their coop for the move, or do they need to be confined in small cages for transport? Should I black out the windows? I would sure be interested to hear anyone's experience with such a project. The hens are in their prime laying year, so I would prefer not to slaughter them just now.
