Chick crates
« on: March 13, 2019, 12:49:52 PM »
I am looking to get a source for chick crates.  Not sure if that is what they are really called but it's the little boxes that the feed stores have to send home chicks in.  Does anyone have a source for them and/or know pricing?

Thanks in advance

I buy XS25 Chick Shipping Boxes from Cutler Supply to ship chicks. 
I'm not sure if this is what you are talking about.  I think the feed store boxes that I've seen look like a Happy Meal box.
I have extra 50 count chick shipping boxes if any member wants them cheap.

John I am looking for the "happy meal" type boxes.  I am not currently NPIP but would like to get some boxes for folks to take chicks home in when they purchase from me.

Thank you.

Doing a search for "happy meal boxes" gave a lot of results from Amazon.com. Here are some of the other names they go by...
Paper Treat Boxes - Gable Favor Boxes - Party Play Goodie Boxes - Birthday Party Loot Gift Boxes

Thanks John.  I had never even thought to do a search on Happy Meal boxes.
