Who successfully ships quail. Wanting to ship teens (3ish weeks old).
How do you set up their shipping box, what do you do ahead of time to prep them, other tips/tricks for a successful trip?

Thanks seasoned shippers!!❤️

I read somewhere that chicks often die during shipment and it isn’t uncommon to receive a shipment with a couple who died. I’m not sure, because I’ve never tried it, but my well labeled hatching eggs with fast shipping got lost for 6 full days, on top of the 2 intended days, and I think if it was chicks in that situation they would all be dead.
