Can you ship chicks at 6 weeks?
You can ship at any age but after day-old, overnight mail is essential and avoid very hot weather.
If I had 7 six week old bantams I need to ship what size box should I get? At six weeks should I get a heat pack? Should I send fruit with them. Will they even eat fruit at this age?
Not sure about the size but you can buy individual boxes at http://www.meyerhatchery.com/productlist.a5w?session.subcategory=Shipping Boxes&subcat=1079&session.subcat_id=1079&cat=1027
the link doesn't always work well but if not click on poultry supplies and then shipping boxes.
Chop up mandarin orange for moisture.
You wouldn't need a heat pack, they should be nearly feathered out and that many birds that size should be fine.
