It seems that I may soon be facing a cross country--or nearly so--move soon. I just started the chicken thing this March, and I currently have one standard and one bantam rooster, five bantam hens and twenty four standard hens all different breeds. They give us tween 10-20 eggs a day. I hate to start over, but I am concerned about getting them there and the transition. Does any one have a past experience moving or shipping a flock of this size a long distance? What did you do? How did it turn out? how much did it cost? I am not sure of my final desination yet but it seems that it would either be upper midwest or northern west coast. I now live in Maryland on the east coast. thanks!
