So my husband and I take a small road trip every week to pick up hay for our horses. It's about an hour 1/2 trip 1 way and we LOVE taking our various pets to show to the employees. Everytime we come in they rush over to us asking what we brought today. For us it's an opportunity to educate people about animals (we make other stops along the way and show off our beasties, we especially love being able to let little kids pet them) AND to socialize our animals. It's good for everyone. What I'd like to know is would it be too stressful to take a chicken. My Frizzle cochin is really friendly and I think he's be a great conversation piece. Your average person thinks of RIR or white leg horns when thinking of chickens and have NO idea of the variety.
