I'm going to be taking 10 eleven-week-old hens on an eight-hour drive to their new home. I've never transported chickens before and I'm looking for suggestions. We plan on catching them early in the morning while they're sleeping and before they've eaten. My idea is to get a very large cardboard box from a moving company, put a layer of pine shavings in the bottom, cut lots of ventilation holes and take them that way. (We don't have any cages.) I'm assuming they'll be just fine not eating for the eight hour trip, but should we give them water part way through? Any tips, suggestions, encouragement is appreciated! Many thanks in advance!
