Default Help With Shipping

Looking for opinions on shipping babies/shipping young axolotls. Currently only selling to my local area but I have some people interested in my babies that are too far to drive to. I want to know:
  • What kind of shipping should I use? Overnight, 2-day, priority, ect.
  • How to pack up the axolotl? Bag, cold pack, newspaper, ect.
  • What do I do to prep the baby for travel? I've seen people talk about fasting their babies before travel.
  • Does the same go for eggs?

And any other notes or comments or suggestions you may have!

Overnight shipping is best, it gives the axie a better chance of survival.
