So I have ordered 6 chicks from Chickens for Backyards. They ship is a couple of weeks. What should I expect? The site says that the post office will likely call me when the chicks arrive, is this correct? What has been your experience with ordering?

The hatchery should post you name and phone number on the outside of the package. If you have competent USPS workers, they give you a call early. I usually get a phone call (as early as 6:30a before, usually around 7:30 or 8) from mine before they 'open' and then it's just a matter of going and pick them up.
I always call or visit my post office the week the chicks are to be shipped, with contact phone numbers, and make sure that they know to call immediately at any time when they arrive. This year it was 7am, and they all arrived in good shape from Cackle. Mary
