June 1st is the start of hurricane season and I live in FL. A prime spot to get hit. I've never evacuated with chickens before but what's the best thing to do? I always have to evacuate as we live in a small island between the river and the ocean and we get horrible flooding. The authorities come door to door and kick us out of our houses so of course I have to take the animals with me. Does anybody have a good packing list of what I should bring if I do evacuate this year? I only get about 2 days of notice before I have to board up and leave and so I'm determined to get all my prep done for the animals this weekend. I have 3 hens and an Indian Runner Duck I have to take with me. This means sneaking them into hotels along with 10 of our big snakes and monitor lizards a dog and a cat. So what should I bring? And what's the best way to transport them? ANY advice helps. I'm scared this year is gonna be a big one!!
