    Not from Cackle, but my Chanteclers made the trip from Ideal in Texas to Maine the third week of March last spring. 100% survival.

    My 15 shipped from cackle on 3-1 en route to south alabama. they got here on 3-3 with the temps droping into the 20's overnite each nite. I was worried but all showed up with one extra. with an extra month for it to warm up some you may be ok.
