    We have to drive an hour each way to pick up some of the chicks we're getting, so does anyone have suggestions about keeping them warm on the trip? How concerned should I be about it? We're getting four of them.

    You could glue a Hand Warmer in the box and keep them out of draft from windows and they will be fine. Congrats!

    I usually crack the box open and put it in the floor board with heater blowing on the floor of the truck. I watch to make sure they aren't too warm
