    How do you do it? what day do you try to ship them? which months do you do and not do? do you use shipping warmers for the cold months? how many do you need to ship at a time?

    I ship express Mondays and Tuesdays and just about anytime of year but I do watch weather because if a cold front is coming in I will wait. I will not ship less than 12 so the can stay warm. Best to do more than less.

    We try to ship Mon.Tues> or Wed. Day old chicks can go about anytime but we try to avoid extreme heat or cold. When shipping less than 20 we use heat packs.
