Our kunekunes and chickens get on very well together, in the winter when there was snow on the ground the chickens would launch themselves out of the coop straight onto the warm dry backs of the pigs for a lift to their food! - gives a whole new meaning to the term piggy back :D

Good luck with your move and with finding the piggies new homes.

Also try putting some solid ground in their area if they dont already have it, ie: paving slabs so that they can naturally wear their hooves down on the solid surface.
