Preserving and sharing the history of Chatham County North Carolina

Siler City Chicken Truck

26 Aug 2021 5:25 PM | Chatham Historical Museum (Administrator)

These trucks used to be a common site on area roads. Who remembers the flying feathers?

Loading those crates--especially when they were full of chickens--could not have been an easy task!

When and why did this method of transporting chickens change?

Thanks to Larry Pickard for sharing from the Goldston Studio collection!
