Hello! We have 6 chickens, assorted breeds, and 2 Indian Runner Ducks. The problem is, we are moving from a house with acreage to a house in the suburbs. Here is our plan: 1. Give our two ducks to our old horse boarder (we are friends and they will take great care of them!) 2. Rip up & relocate hen house (already have plan set up) *Meanwhile, the chickens will stay in a stall during the night... They have done it before and grew up in one so they should be fine. 3. Disassemble Coop... How and do we need it? (I will go over this later) 4. Set up new "free-range" plan (they will use half our lawn, a large square plot with plenty of room and privacy 5. Transport chickens (HOW?!) So, we live in Washington, where some hawks and eagles live. Other animals aren't an issue because we have a fully enclosed yard with private fence. Sorry if I'm rambling, but we are debating if we bring the coop (which is as tall as the large coop and spans around two sides, making it 2x bigger. The only reason we would do this is for the birds of prey, but are wondering if that is a problem in our area... Have been accustomed to birds of prey constantly flying around an in many cases, stealing our chickens! Also, does anyone have experience disassembling a coop (cage enclosure)? It's held in by support beams underground. Problem is removing the chicken wire without destroying, removing supports and frame, and bringing it all over to be reassembled (possibly differently) or stored (depending on previous paragraph). Come to think of it we do have access to a big pickup with a long bed and tall canopy! Another small issue is transporting. Back of a pickup truck in a net is out of the picture. They're family, not poultry! I guess we could use a pickup with a canopy in safe cages going 5 mph! The main route is only 5 mins but includes many hills, noises, etc. This can be avoided with an alternate route that includes a smooth dirt road and only one long upward hill. Also meaning we an go slower! We've also heard that if you put them in your car, your chickens go crazy being seperated from half their group for even a half an hour. How do you suggest going about this? -Transportation (Chickens & Enclosure) -Enclosure (Protection from birds of prey) Thank you we will take any advice or opinions!
