WOW !!! Doesn't get any better then this. My post was meant to say how VERY pleased I am with the quality of the chicks.
I am a retired USPS rural carrier and I know that the DOA's are from the USPS handling and delays and not the quality of the chicks.
It used to be the truck driver delivering the mail to rural post offices would put chicks in the cab of the truck with him to keep them warm. But a new contractor started hauling mail and refuses to let the chicks in the cab, (says they are "too noisy"...of course they are peeping...they are cold, put them in the cab and they will warm up and shut up.)
For how stressed my survivors had to be by the shipping stress, they have done remarkably well.
Thank you for being such an involved and concerned hatchery owner.
