    Two of my six week old chicks have recently transitioned to outside life and today have climbed in the undercarriage of my van for safety. If I try to get them out they seem to go further up. What should I do? I put food out to lure them but it's not working.

    I had a serious issue at one point where a chick climbed into a stack of pallets and got herself wedged in there and could not get out. It was a nightmare trying to safely remover her. My advice is to cordon off their access to the Van until they are too large to get up in there.
