Welcome to BYC. I can't help you with how long they can stay out of the heat as I am an aussie and it doesn't get cold here like there but I am sure one of the other great members here will help you with that. Congrats on getting chickens. You will love them.
Chicks are ususally sent with enough little bodies to create enough warmth for the batch. That's were you get what's called "packing peanuts" Extra chicks you didn't count on. Keep the vehicle warm, get them home fast as possible and undeer the heat lights. Water is very important and sugar water( light mixture) is very beneficial for the first 3 days. Keep them out of drafts. Be prepared to pick up as soon as postal worker calls and says, "We got a noisey box here with your name on it!"
sure thing :] nd I just moved here, I used to live in Pennsylvania... I miss it, but whats not to love here lol (no snow)
