    So, I drove 3 1/2 hours this past weekend to purchase some silkies. How far have you all gone JUST to get chickens.

    I'll be driving 3 hours round trip in a couple of weeks to pick up some.... I hope at least that it doesn't fall through.

    I had a gal that drove 8 hours one way last year to get some chicks from me. That was crazy, still hard for me to believe!

    6 hours one way. Of course when you live in Texas you can drive all day long and never get out of the state!

    I drove from High Point, NC to Mt. City, TN 3 1/2 each way. Beautiful scenery though. That is how I talked DN into taking me. And I had to buy some after driving that far.

    So far, only an hour one way.

    But I've had folks drive 3 hours to get hatching eggs from me.

    when I was in college I made a road trip that was pretty long....6 hours from Minnesota to Illinois, then after leaving there I had to drive the birds back to the farm which was another 9 hours (did this all in one day). Then the next day had another 6 hours to drive back from the farm to college.

    On another occassion I drove from Minnesota to Indianapolis for a show, brought home a bunch of birds to Nebraska so I think that part of the trip was 14 hours...that week we put A LOT of miles on the car cause it was Thanksgiving. So after dropping the birds off in Nebraska we went back to Minneapolis the next day, then to Waterloo Iowa the next day, then back to Nebraska the next day, then back to Minneapolis the next day.
