Low and behold I am moving. I am not happy about it, but it is a must at this point. I cannot keep my ladies with me at my new place but have a great friend who is going to keep them in her backyard for the 6-9 months I need. She lives close and I can still perform daily duties, see my ladies, etc. My questions are: 1. How should I move them? Boxes with air holes? It is only about a 25 min drive. 2. If I cannot keep their current hen house, what kind of issues do I face introducing them to a new one? 3. What kind of laying interference will this cause? 3 of my 6 birds are laying now, the last one just laid her first egg today. I figure I am moving them in about a month or less so most of them will be laying by then. 4. Any tips on what I can do to prepare them? Prepare the new space? Any advice is greatly appreciated. Cheers and thanks everyone! Happy laying!
