We are moving back to town. We got a great deal on a home we couldn't turn down. Lucky the town allows 6 hens, no roosters in the city. The huge problem is I have 15 hens, 2 mallards, 1 pekin. How do I decide who moves to the new coop and who moves to the freezer? I love all my birds. They have been a saving force in my life, when I got sick and almost died, (I went through 5 massive surgeries in less than a year), looking out the window and watching them in the yard gave me hope each day. Now I have no idea who to take. I know I'm allowed 6 but the yard at the new place would only support 4 tops. Plus I need to research small coops to see what size to build to house 4 hens. I never had this problem before. My current coop is my 24x24 barn with 3/4 of acre of grass for them to roam and a pond for the ducks. I swear this is more stressful than the actual move of humans.
