    If they can survive travelin through the mail for 2 days, I'm sure they can handle a 30 minute drive just peachy. [​IMG] The hatchery should already have a vented box for them to ride in and other than that, they dont need much. I had to drive over an hour to get mine this week, and they did just fine. [​IMG] Good luck and post pics when they get home!

    If it is hot and you are using the AC, keep them out of any cold drafts in the car.
