I'd stuff them in tight, so they don't get bounced around. They sit close on the roost, right? And a box with holes cut in but in the dark would probably make them feel more secure than being able to see but not get out. You've got moving boxes already.
I'd start over, unless yoy have emotional attachment to the individual chickens you currently have. I moved with chickens and it was a pain, mostly due to not having time to move in/unpack because I was busy doing chicken things.
