A reader sent us this posting he found on the Facebook group RV Tips. We believe the woman who posted it was serious. She asked:
I’m going to retire in five years. My question is: l want to travel around the country with one or two chickens. Are there ordinances or laws about crossing state lines with poultry?
The comments were all over the place, often funny:
• Don’t really know. In our travels we’ve seen pigs, goats, monkeys, snakes, and exotic birds, raccoons, and skunks, and squirrels so what would make a chicken any different?
• Keep them on a leash, no one will argue with you.
• I usually have one or two chickens in the fridge when camping. No problems so far.
• Oddly enough, City of Atlanta is very chicken friendly.
• Wholeheartedly agree with your statement. I truly mean no disrespect to the original poster, but I feel like so many forget that to be full time, one must give up the sticks and bricks mentality. Taking laying hens would be the same as taking a dairy cow. Not necessary and unrealistic.
• Have them certified as emotional support chickens! That way you can also take them with you in an UBER!
What do you think? Your comments welcome.
