    So I am moving from MO to CO. I found several places that allows 6 hens, sadly no roo. I would like to bring my best layers with me. What is the best way to transport my girls with minimal stress (and smell to me). Do you even recommend taking them, or should I just get new ones(which makes me kinda sad, I love some of my girls).

    First check with the agricultural department of the state you're moving too about the restrictions of bringing your chickens into the state, there are often health certificates that need to be obtained....unless you're just going to fly under the radar.

    I've seen numerous discussions on this, there are a multitude of options.
    The advanced search will find you several threads about moving chicken long distances.
