If I collect my hens, how should I transport them?

When you pick up your hens they will be already boxed and ready to roll, when in transport they fair better in the boot of a car or hatchback, do not sit with the box on your lap, or put the hens on the back seat, the prefer a dark and quiet area when being transported and too much stimulation can stress them out. On very hot days try and keep them as cool as possible, do not give them water, they won’t drink it and it will spill and ruin the box, if you’re worried we recommend giving chunks of watermelon, this will hydrate them enough without making your box wet. Do not transport for more than 6 hours at a time.
