    We are preparing to move to another state with our girls. Years ago when we moved here we just moved them with us - no health certificates, etc. The world seems more complicated now. Wondering who has moved their flock recently and whether they went through the red tape or just flew under the radar and moved. Thanks for your help.

    Good morning and welcome to BYC!

    We didn't have chickens (or any other live animal for that matter) when we moved from south FL to north FL last year. We got our girls once we came up here, but now I can't imagine living some place that wouldn't allow me to have them. The best thing I can suggest is that you check out the local laws before you move to find out what they say about keeping chickens.

    It would be awful to move some place that didn't let you have them at all. There are too many stories about people having birds and then finding out they are not allowed where they live.
