If these baby chicks are over 3 days old, they are unlikly to make it alive via mail. They would need constant heat, food, and water now they are past using up their yolk. With just 4, you would need a heat pad if they were just hatched. If they are eating, it's too late and you should now wait till they are at least 8 weeks old before being able to ship them again.
