So we were all set to head over to our feed store Friday to pick out and bring home 4 newly arrived Astralorps. ( They arrive that morning).
But I just read that one should wait a day or two to let the chicks recover from their shipping to the store. It also helps wean out those that may not survive or got sick in transport.
The problem is that very few stores in are area are listing Astralorps for sale, and since they wont hold any, we thought we needed to get there the day of their arrival.
How important is this advice to wait 24-48 hours to pick out your chicks after they arrive at the store?
