I have my family’s home that is more inland so trying to arrange to bring them there. The dog crate we have is not big enough for all of them however, I could put 2 of my young ones their brooder bin for a day or 2 because they are still fairly small (12 weeks). We have plenty of food and water for them though so that shouldn’t be an issue.If they can't be in a safer place, they will have to take their chances outside.
How about having them in a big dog crate? It's not for weeks, just do it.
Have enough food and water for them too!
Drive everyone to a safer location, now, or set things up to be as safe as possible. You need to plan for extended power outages, so enough water and food are essential.
I'm hoping that your house is built for this, or drive away!
I didn’t think about the cardboard boxes, I have a few of the extra large ones laying around. Thank you!We always just brought them in the house in whatever cages or very large cardboard boxes we had. We laid plastic down on the floor and put the cages on top of that, in the living room. Newspapers changed often for the droppings. If your bathtub has a shower door you could keep them in there. Even a small room or closet with plastic sheeting on the floor will do for a short time. Best of luck to you.
Do you have a garage or secure to the ground storage unit? I don't have a cage but if things get bad I'm doing to put them loose in the garage.Currently trying to prepare for the hurricane heading straight for me and have no idea what to do with my 4 hens. I only have 1 dog crate and I don’t have any room in my house I can fence off for them. Any suggestions?
