Transporting chicks

Hi
Seen plenty of adds with day old chicks for sale. Is there a safe way to transport them over long distances or would you collect yourself and try to keep them warm.
Thanks

How long a distance are you talking about?
I know Anyalla chicks bring the from the UK and transport them all over Ireland as day olds but their trucks would be equipped for doing this.

5 hour journey roughly from north to Kerry

Hot water bottle wrapped in a towel would probably do the job depending on how many chicks you are moving.
