Raising some chicks for a family member out of state. Has anyone successfully brought 3-week-old chicks through airport security? Is it possible?
Bringing chicks through airport security?
Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
Not chickens, but we brought our cockatiels and parakeet through the airport when we moved a few years back. We put all three in a small dog kennel and kept them under the front seat like any other small travelling pet. I think we needed a veterinary sign-off of health and a fee to the airline, but otherwise everything went smoothly.
It will depend a lot on the individual airline, I think, as their pet policies can differ. IDK if chickens would be more or less regulated than parrot types.
