@akaruby , sorry to hear that. Dead or dying chicks suck.
I only have ordered chicks a few times now. Fortunately I have a place I can get them without mailing, and our feed store you order but only get live chicks, they do them in bulk then divy them up.
I had good luck with Meyer's also, but also in the spring, May . 25 of 25 did excellent, no probs.
The chicks I ordered last yr from Sand Hill preservation center, July ,22 arrived fine ,don't know why there was only 22, supposed to have been 25, half were free so I didn't complain. Lost six within a few days, don't know why and wasn't happy...Plan on ordering naked necks from Cackle to arrive in May. I might go to chickenstock, not sure, thinking maybe ordering more than I need maybe some others if anyone going might want something from Cackle.
