    I would love to hear more about this too...

    I have shipped plants all over and judging by the condition of the boxes that arrive... I cant imagine how sweet little chicks could ever arrive alive !

    Requirements for your state are listed on this page, under avian species. It's the destination state's import requirements that you need to go by.

    Does this person have experience shipping chicks?
