I'm probably a little late to chime in on this one but I will anyway.
For what my 2 cents is worth, we have 13 chickens on our 10 acres ( they mostly range) and considering the mess they make here, I would never consider trying to keep even one live chicken on a boat.
They would probably not lay on board (although that is a guess from our experience in owning chickens for a long time) and trying to store enough feed for them without it getting wet may pose a whole other set of problems.
Just my thoughts.

Not since my square rigger days. You're kidding, right? Ever been in a chicken coop? Want that smell on your boat??

I keep just one old hen on board . . .

. . . and she's post-menopausal, so . . . no eggs. She still keeps laying though, bless her heart.
