Which means you are closest to MaBo and Tam'ra - they are in Washington state.
FYI to anyone interested in chicks, I'm going to try and set some eggs on Feb 6th, which would mean chicks on Feb 27th. The plan is to offer the first 25 that hatch as shipped live chicks to a potential new Aloha breeder out there. Is there anyone who might be interested in getting chicks? Cost would probably total $60-$70 for 25 chicks, which would include the box, Express overnight mail, and $1 per baby.
Would have to clear the shipment with the Post Office on that date; they have to approve the route and make sure it's not too cold on any leg of the trip, so a freak late winter storm back east could mess up plans, for example, if I was shipping back there. But I'm hoping that is late enough in the year to be past that stuff. It's a narrow window to ship live animals from Phoenix.) By May, it's over 100 degrees here, but before that, it can still be chilly in many other places in the US.) Ideally they told me they like the temps to be 50-80 degrees the entire trip. That's pretty much just March and April in Phoenix, ha ha!
