    Curious how possible it would be to ship a batch of 25-50 newly hatched buttons.
    Could you just ship them in a hatchery type box?
    From MN to Ok for example.
    Usps?
    Thanks,
    Jim

    I would think its too risky, there too small there needs to be more chicks for them to keep each other warm, usually when you order other type of quail chicks you can only get them in batches of 50 or 100, and those are a little bigger chicks than buttons.
