I will be doing a move soon that will be 13+ hours and I want to take my flock along. I am looking for suggestions on how to transport that will be best for my chickens. I will be using carriers and crates and will it be best to leave alot of space per chicken or making sure they are in there with only enough space to lay and move a bit. Like say a carrier can hold 3 chickens comfortably with some room but only putting 2 in would be alot more room for them. I was thinking less space for the trip they wouldn't fall around as much if brakes needed to be applied quickly or going around turns. I don't mean overpacking either that they are on top of each other. But just enough space to allow some wiggle room to turn and stretch etc. Also, what type of bedding do you suggest for the trip that would be less mess and help with odor. My last question I think for now is, where to transport them. I was thinking in the van would be best but is there enough ventilation for them in something like a uhaul truck??? I wouldn't think so but I was thinking I might be able to make the crates more stationary in there so as not to slide around?? Any other ideas would be appreciated!!!!
