One idea on how to transport them would be to get one of those gel packs that you can either freeze for an ice pack or heat in the microwave for a heat pack. Heat it and wrap it in a towel, put it in a shoe box. That way the chicks would be warm on the way to your house. Of course, you don't want it to be too hot; then they would die from the heat. Make sure you have your brooder prepared for them and it is heated to the correct temperature. You can get one of those little digital thermometers that they sell at the pet store for reptile cages. (You can use that for the transport home, too, to check the temp of the heat pack.) Make sure you put the lid on the box, because these little tiny things can run, and even jump out of your hands and splat on the floor.
