As for the chicks....
thanks for responding Alaskan but it's a moot point. Talked with our little post office postmaster who tried to find out what was going on and long story short, mine aren't the only ones, there was some sort of screw up in the routing of the priority express load. if those chicks are still alive they won't be for long. They are already outside the 72 hour window, still on a truck heading for a transfer hub where they will be held in a warehouse until 2 a.m., loaded into an unheated truck in 20o temps and will be hauled around until they finally arrive at our post office some time after 7 am tomorrow. It's a small order. In ideal temps that would be pushing it. In rain and cold? No chance. i won't even get a refund except for the chicks and the most expense was in the special packing and the shipping costs. Love the little (huge) loophole the USPS has in their priority express 72 hour "guarantee" excluding anything perishable. If it's not perishable, why bother with the ridiculous rates? Done ranting. I need to go hide somewhere and have a good cry. I'm a girl, I'm allowed.
