I just got off the phone with Meyer's customer service to get the shipping details for my order placed last December. I ordered 3 chicks (2 Black Copper Marans and 1 Welsummer) for overnight delivery to NY ($38 for shipping...ouch!). First time ordering chicks through the mail…..I can't get the Marans locally.
I called to get tracking info for tomorrows delivery (took the day off). She says they were shipped today and I should be receiving them in 2-3 days...I asked her why 2-3 days?.....I paid for Overnight Express Mail? She said sorry....we sent them Priority Mail by mistake.
I am very upset. I had reservations about ordering only 3 chicks through mail order during the winter, but hoped for the best since they would be delivered overnight. Never again.
I asked her to ship another 3 overnight as I took the day off tomorrow, and she said no, they had no more chicks left.
I know people make mistakes….but its sad to think 3 baby chicks may suffer for it. I hope they make it.
