    put them in a small box and heated(warm not hot) up water in a jar/jug wrapped in a towel so they can get next to the heat and not be to hot.....or box them up and put them in the front seat of the car [​IMG]

    WHEN I TAKE CHICKS TO THE AUCTION (RARE) THAT REQUIRE HEAT I CONSIGN THEM IN THE MORNING BY TELLING THE AUCTION WHAT I AM BRINGING...NOT TAKING THEM THERE AND LEAVING THEM, THEN I RETURN IN TIME FOR THE AUCTION ITSELF WITH THE CHICKS AND THE WATER JAR IDEA D1 HAS ALREADY POSTED. AND I LIKE TO KEEP THEM IN THE CAR UNTIL THE AUCTION IS READY FOR THEM.​
