We traded our old chickens and got the new ones today. I had to get my 6 into cages this morning to take them to the new farm. I couldn't catch 2 of them and Mom had to help. When I gave up the chicken wrangling, my mom said,''You have to help me get them in the dog cages or you have to shoot them."so I then got to helping and we got them in the cages.
The car ride with 6 chickens was horrible. Dad forgot to leave his truck, so we had Mom, 4 kids and 6 chickens in a mini-van. If you think that is bad. On the way home we had Mom, 4 kids covered with chicken poop and 22 chickens in the mini-van. It stunk so bad.
There was chicken poop all over us..... all over the inside of mom's mini-van....... all over the 2 dog kennels we used to transport chickens........... all over the 4 wheeler (we used to get the dog kennels full of chickens to the coop)........... and all over us (did I say that?). It was a disaster. We spent almost the whole morning and half the afternoon chasing chickens, cleaning chicken funk off things, moving chickens and cleaning the coop. Here are pictures of our new chickens.
