We will be moving before the end of the year to Florida, from the St. Louis area. This includes our 2 greyhounds, several cats, 2 horses and I would like to take my 25 pullets and roo. I have become quite attached to my little flock, have raised them from chicks hatched this spring, and am trying to make the decision to take or not to take them. I have a friend who is willing to take them and I know they would be well taken care of. I need to make that decision in the next couple of days, so if I do leave them my friend will have time to get their "digs" together. Anyway, I would love opinions either yea or nay on just how hard a move like this would be on the birds. Should I buy transport boxes or make them? How many birds should I put together in a box? My husband suggested putting them loose in the tack room area of our stock horse trailer, but I am sure that is not a good idea. I can imagine them flying into the walls and hurting each other in the process. It is probably a 15 hour drive or so and we would drive straight thru with only short necessary stops. Is there anyone who can direct me to the best links for chicken transport cages? Any and all information will be much appreciated. The move itself is emotion packed, but transporting animals just adds to the mix. Thanks.
