So, I'm going to pick up a few new chickens this weekend. Adult birds, most likely. I have a silly question...the drive home with them will be about 7 hours. Will the birds be ok in cardboard boxes in the car (with proper ventilation, of course)??
I'm thinking they'd be just fine, but I thought I'd ask, just in case!! It will only be 7 or 8 hours, tops, before they get home and into their pen. The last time I brought chickens home I was only travelling 15 minutes away, so a big cardboard box was just fine!
Any other tips or information on making sure my birds get home safely would be greatly appreciated as well! Though I'm thinking that several hours in my car has got to be better and less stressful for them than shipping them through the USPS!
