    When my chicks are 2-1/2 weeks old we are going out of state on vacation. A family member has volunteered to watch the chicks but they live 40 minutes away, so they are going to stay at their house. I am worried about driving them there... How do I get them there safely with the least amount of stress? Help!

    Put them in a semi dark place like a cardboard box with some holes cut into it or a cat carrier with a towel over it. I've found that chickens are pretty easy travelers. They just settle in and enjoy the ride. Good luck, enjoy your vacay!
