So I get this bug that I want chickens. I pour over web sites night and day, I'm reading all I can and start building a Coop nothing huge just hoping to have 4 layers for the family. I spend many more days pouring over web sites about breeds then feeders then waters and every thing I can think of...but... I don't know how to get them home I'm looking to get pullets I'm not quite ready to try baby chicks out. but how does one bring a chicken home? I feel dumb asking but I haven't been able to find a relevant thread. I have a friend with a medium sized dog carrier would that work? How many might I fit in something like that? Anywhere I'd be picking up birds would probably not be more then 30 minutes away. I have a pickup truck to move them...please enlighten this poor newb thanks!
