    Haha I will say this, they usually come in a much smaller box than you think they would fit in:>) The first time I ever got chicks I bummed out, 25 chicks in about a 8"x 12" box if I remember correctly:>) Sorry I don't have a pic

    Go to Cackle Hatchery's website and look at their "virtual hatchery tour". It shows hundreds of shipping boxes stacked all over the place. Usually they come in a 100 chick capacity box divided into quarters. They are tightly packed to conserve body heat.
