    So I am planning on going to a show soon and was just wondering a couple of things...
    1. what is a good way to transport them back to your home? I was thinking a cat carrier.
    2. Should the chickens I purchase be kept in separate carriers? I am looking to get a silkie, a polish and a wyandotee, should they be kept seperate if they are from seperate vendors?
    3. Do people usually carry their carriers into the show with them? Or will i be the lone person walking around with a cage.

    Thanks all! Really excited for my first chicken show!

    well.......I guess that depends on how many quarantine quarters you have at home. You could keep them all separate or you could put them all together and hope none of them have any diseases that pop up.
    Cat/dog carriers work great just make sure you disinfect them when you are done using them.

    Unless I buy from the same person and he had them together, I always put them in separate carriers.
