What could be put into the box with the new chicks to keep them warm enough for like the say 3 to 4 hours drive back to the persons home?

 

If the chicks are in a relatively small box they can keep each other warm. If the car is a comfortable temperature for you, I wouldn't worry about it at all. You are going to cause more trouble if you put an artificial heat source in with them because they won't be able to get away if they are too hot. Heat will kill them faster than cold will.

 

When I got my shipment of chicks a few years ago, they arrived in mid-January in the middle of the coldest freeze we've had in a long time. The chicks were fine. Even though they went from Minnesota to Tucson in January and arrived here while the days were barely into the 40's and the nights were in the mid-low teens.

Ok, thank you! She told me that she has a small box that would fit all 6 chicks into it after they hatch out.

I have six 8 week old cockerels up to choose from but they are Australorps, not the 2 breeds that you mentioned.
