    I am currently living in Pennsylvania and a while ago someone bought me six baby chicks. Not planning that I knew I would be moving back to Florida. Now knowing that I have to take these chicks with me how does anybody suggest moving them?. I've become very attached and couldn't imagine leaving them behind. [​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    Put some bedding in a moving box and close it up with sufficient air holes.
    If it is dark, they will sleep.

    You might putting "Moving with Chickens," in the search box - lots of folks have detailed their stories of traveling with them - what worked best and what didn't.
