We're moving (finally buying our own farm!) and are wondering about how best to move a flock of chickens. We have 9 chickens and are moving 2,000 miles. It's a 4-5 day trek driving 6-10 hours a day. We have a large truck and are bringing all of our furniture and stuff in an attached trailer. That leaves the entire 8 foot fully enclosed truck bed for the chickens. Tentatively, we're thinking about putting down a tarp and putting chicken bedding over it. While we're moving, we'd put the chickens in 2 large dog crates. Then, when we aren't driving, we'd open up the dog crates and let the chickens roam around the truck bed. There's enough windows that crack open where they could get ventilation, but that don't open enough for a fully grown chicken to get out. We'd also strap the dog crates to the side of the truck bed so that they aren't sliding around or moving during the trip. Has anyone done this? Does anyone have any advice? Thanks in advance! The chickens come from an NPIP verified flock. They're up-to-date on vaccinations and have a clean bill of health. We have all the necessary paperwork to move them across state lines. Strictly asking about logistics of moving a flock of 9 chickens!
