    We have 15 pet chickens. They are free range. We are thinking about moving. Anyone have ideas about how it will affect them? One rooster (hand raised) is particularly territorial. They are all used to where we live. They have their wander/come to eat/wander schedule. They sleep in the trees next to the house. They nest near the house. Our rooster spends a lot of time on our welcome mat. ETC

    It will take a bit but they will adjust just like other pets.

    They'll get over it, probably in one day.
    My chickens travel back & forth between PA & VA and they're comfortable in both places, although they are not thrilled about the ride in between....
