    Ok, I live only an hours drive from Meyers so I am planning on driving down to get them... my question is, what should i transport them in to keep them warm and safe while in the car?

    Quote:on the website it says that they pre-package your chicks for you (sounds so wierd) I just mail ordered them and am hoping they will be here tommorow. My feeling is, if they pre-package them for basically 2 day shipping, they should be ok for an hour ride home... just make sure you don't roll down the windows and crank up the tunes! lol![​IMG]

    They will probably put them in one of their little transport boxes, possibly even with a heat pack. When I picked up chicks, I took a cat carrier, which I can secure in the car by running the seat belt through the handle. If you have a cat carrier, you could do this and put the chicks in their box in the cat carrier which means the box can't move around very much.
