We need to move our four hens to a new area in the school where they are going to live - does anyone have any suggestions as to how I should manage this? Should I move everything and then leave the chickens in their (9ft) run and coop for a few days (not sure that they would like it, but I can see it might make them feel safe) or leave them in for a night, then let them free range in the fenced area that we have prepared for them the next day - shutting them up as usual at night? It is a good size but not as big as the garden they are currently in. 2 of the chickens are 16 weeks old and have been with us since hatching and the other two arrived two weeks ago and are a few weeks older. And could they come back to my house in the holidays, for example? I have no idea whether chickens are portable - any advice very welcome - I am sure someone out there has had to move chickens.
