I have 21 chickens and plan to move from Southern California to Mississippi in about a year. I want desperately to take my hens with me. Does anybody know about state agricultural regulations or check points or health certificates needed to move chickens cross country. I have nightmares about getting to a state line somewhere and having my hens confiscated because I did not get permits or whatever....If anybody has any info about transporting chickens safely and legally, please share that info with me. I know what I need for horses to travel (Coggins), but I cannot find anything about hens, and my vet just stares at me and scratches his head, thinking, "Why would anyone move across America with chickens?" He is a large animal vet and does not "get" my chickens! Thanks so much for any help.
